I have a belt and need to be fed regulary
i don't even own a belt
right on. ive got a 1919 42 and 34
got a hungarian pkm kit, no reciever yet
Hopefully picking up an M60 E3/E4 next year if the funds permit; was gonna get it this year but had to buy a new truck.
soon. but you know all about that
I've got a buddy with a 1919.. Its cool!
Sorry to burst your bubble but theres only 10 or so transferable M60E4's and they run for about $50,000.
or mabey you allready knew that!
semi autos go for about $8k and I see more than 10 transferable M60s going for around $30k and then you can go and buy E4 parts to convert it.
Been looking at building a 1919a4, but am still looking for more info on them so I know what I am getting into.
Striker, you have any good links for info? I have been looking at this one http://gunthings.com/1919.htm from what I can tell all you need to do it rivet on the side plate... but I know it can not be that simple.
Reman has it right, which is why I wrote E3/E4; which to me at least indicated that a conversion was in order. I'd rather have a 240 for the same price as the transferable E4s I've seen sold recently.
I love beltfeds; trying to hook up one of those little LM7s right now.
thanks, I have been a member there for a bit. They have good info
So basically you buy the parts kit and then you need a receiver?
Is there a FAQ on this anywhere? or EDU?
Each model will be different
Honestly any IMI 1919 would work for me I'm new to the idea so I know very little.. Probably whatever is the easiest since I have no experience with kits
buy a kit, buy a plate 80% or 100%, 80% just involves drilling holes. have your internals machined, rivet together
Just ordered a kit and 80% plate for a 1919... It does not look overly complicated. This being only my second kit I have built, AK was way too easy and fast. I wanted something more of a challenge and more time consuming.
What AK did you build? And did you get an 80% or 100% reciever? Also, did you use a barrel press or what.
Sounds easy enough. Are there good instructions for milling? Hell, ill buy the machine! The 80% plate looks like its a long way from the 100% because of the extra dept and creavaces, is that true?
And what do you usually buy ? Is an 85/100 kit good or do you usually get a 95/100?
no buy an 80% that just needs holes drilled
there are good instructions for milling. You need carbide though.
I'm gonna go with a 1919 is easier to build than an AK from a flat
