I wouldn’t say you have an anomaly. While I don’t know Doug personally from what I understand he did build 1919s using Israeli kits. Maybe it just depended on what kits he had on hand when assembling his plate guns I’m not sure. But they are out there in the 7.62 X 51 configuration. I know where 2 of them are not counting yours.I’ve been searching online for any DLO examples remanufactured using an Israeli parts kit, and I can’t find anything. Have y’all ever seen one like mine before on here? Morphys said DLO made it and after inspecting it, it looks like it it’s in superb condition. Hardly ever fired and the parts are excellent. It’s like new. Just wondering if I have an anomaly
As others noted ya did good On your purchase. Enjoy this site, I certainly have and I’m new to the 1919s as well.
