    It is built on a Israeli kit, was hoping for a US.

    As for the A6 kit/set up. He says it is everything needed to convert to A6 configuration, Israeli kit as well. Stock, bipod and will find out the rest this afternoon.

    I will be looking this 1919 over this afternoon. Will have better input at that point.

    Not that it matters but they are all US kits. Some have been modified by the israelis.

    Ok so here is the lowdown.

    First sorry no pics.owner was not to keen on the idea, and didn't want to push it.

    So the 1919 is a israeli build.
    The whole set up is the following
    gun in .308 as a A4 configuration.
    Israeli a6 stock with bipod.
    Israeli carry handle.
    Tripod,believed to be reproduction.
    2 pintle mounts.
    the belt loader, for metal links believed to be a original.
    reproduction T&E, actually 2 of them.

    Snert,

    I owned a 1919 before (on tripod and with the A6 kit) and it was a hoot to shoot! I also had a crank device that sped things up just a bit. I used to load it into the back of my old Suburban, back it up to the range and shoot it from within the back of the truck. The nice thing was the "Burb" acted as my brass catcher, so all the brass went home with me! lol.



    They are a great gun, and as some have pointed out, once it is set up right, you don't have much trouble with them. But they are a beast to transport and set up. Remember, it was intended as a crew served weapon. But I did end up selling it off due to that fact. Went back to weapons that can be managed by one. Not trying to discourage you at all. Everyone should try one out at some point in their shooting life.

    Here is a link to the fun part of owning a 1919. It is the same model as I had, but I can't recall the makers name. Currently it is Crankfire Systems.

    I have considered a TNW MG34, but have heard of reliability issues, so have hesitated. AND, the 8mm thing. But ammo is not really a factor.

    I now do Bren guns.
