And now for something a little different. I just finished a project I've been working on for about a year. It is a belt-fed semi-auto 1919A4 in 7.62 x 51. Izzy parts kit, ORF 80% side plate, Black Bear rivet set, Karma semi trigger and sear. I've probably put a total of 50 hours of machining, riveting, grinding and fitting into it. I test fired about 40 rounds last night to make sure it runs then dropped it off at the welder this morning to permanently tack it together per BATFE requirements. Next week it gets parkerized. I still have to build a tripod. Here are a few photos during construction. My ugly machining on the internals: Drilling and getting ready to rivet the trunion. Setting (smashing) the bottom plate rivets. What purpose does it server? Absolutely nothing tactical. Building guns and gunsmithing gives me a relaxing hobby outside of the stress of work, teaching and training. Any questions?
