I was joking. BA is Buffalo Arms. It’s a form of torture when it comes to the 1919. They marked every part of the gun during manufacturing. To my knowledge, they didn’t make T&Es, but other forum members like Russ (Toolman) would know.
Yes Tommy the cast pin was the earlier model but many have been replaced over the years and they both work the same just a different design. As the war progressed the made many changes for "ease of production" they just simplified what they could to get things out the door faster.
Thanks Russ, so the detachable mount is a stage of simplify production? I thought about that it might could be interchangeable between 30 and 50 cal. So that they had a 30 and 50 call mount which could be fitted on the T&E.
Yes this was one idea they played with and I had read an interesting article years ago on the variations they played with during this period. There were a few strange variations that never really went anywhere.
