Well here she is. I have several firearm builds under my belt, m14 , Ak74's and assembling several Ar's. 1919 was much easier than an ak build and I would say probably on par with a match conditioned M14. I parkerized the gun yesterday and the tripod today.




Found this under the thick paint. You could tell the maker but it was really hard seeing the date.



Oh yea ,she runs like a raped ape

Build looks great - park job looks real nice. Congrats on a fine job.

I had little trouble building some AK's - and my clone M14's were a breeze. I guess a lot of riveting is troublesome to me, as I thought the 1919's were a little trickier than the AK's and M14's.

In any case - nice gun. :)

I'll be honest, I don't know. I still have a Russian 1988 AK74 parts kit to finish and for some reason I'd like to build up a sten or sterling for some reason. If I build another belt fed it'll shoot.308 bullets because I'd like to not have to stock up on another diameter.

Thanks for all of the questions that were answered and the parts I purchased from y'all.
