Sweet! Looks good. I used to have the A6 stuff but without the right back plate it was bending the sheet metal on the stock. So I took it off.

I bought an RPD yesterday too! What a coincidence...

Sweet,

Aquired a M1919A6 from Signaw Div of GM two months ago here in Iraq that is missing the butt stock. Two days ago picked up a belt of 46 rds of US AP/T that was all made in 1942! Shot the gun and ammo this evening and and no misfires or other malfunctions. Now just to find some more ammo and mount the gun along side my MG3 on my HUMVEE (have the pintal, and pics to follow)

Took some pictures this afternoon of the 1919 and my admin 998. Since I shot all the .30cal ammo the belt is 7.62NATO. Here's the largest ammo hog.

Feel free to mail me that bipod off the 19 before you guys destroy it or whatever you do with those guns you find....

Damn. All I did was function test this one at the range yesterday...

Thanks for the pics Combat Diver! That is REALLY cool. I would personally feel very well armed with a 1919.

Just wondering, did you ever field that Sturmgewer you found? How did that particular piece of history end up? You could always mail it to me.

Yep. They just did a fresh production run. These fit perfecty; didn't need to mess with them at all.

Just bought another kit with everything machined and an 80% RSP to play with. This will be my first 80% plate.

Although my advice isn't worth much....Make sure you have a decent countersink bit for the side plate. What rivet set are you using? Black Bear makes the best in my opinion. Everything fits and you don't have to turn down the rivets to work.

Here's what I use for squishing rivets..


12 ton shop press with a tapped hole in the ram to accept these:


5/16 bolt that I turned down and dimpled. Makes perfect little rivets.

I tried TANKERS bucking bar for the first time this build.. and man is that thing is slick.

Building an 80% 19 is about the coolest thing you can do in a lifetime.

PS..
I just sent the money off for one of these kits too. Should look pretty cool next to the other kids:

Are MG3's and 1919's actually being deployed, or are you guys just playing with them?

Got my pick of stuff from this ad; I was the first person to respond.

I was thinking of getting the 6 ton tabletop press from Harbor Frieght; do you feel that it's too small?

Honestly I think you'll like using the 12 ton better. I paid under 100 bucks for the press, a couple bolts, tap and a good drill bit to make my setup.

You will put a LOT of pressure on those rivets! the more the merrier, I don't know if a 6'r will get it done.

Hey CD, those buildings almost look familiar. Those pics wouldn't happen to be taken just down from BIAP would it?

But then I could just be dreaming.. there are buildings like that all over there.

I'll have to see what my gunsmith has in his shop already. He's letting me use his stuff to do the build.

Don't know what happened to it when we rotated out. Came back next rotation and it had found a new owner but we never destroyed it.
