Im now playing the waiting game. My plate should arrive by the end of next week. In the mean time Ive been cleaning parts and trying to identify what I should replace. Lord knows when the last time my 1919 ran. Should I save myself the hassle and purchase new parts that are associated with feeding and ejecting? I'm very familiar with our current inventory machine guns. ANYTHING out of spec on the top covers or anything else related to feeding and ejecting can have a huge affect on how well the gun runs. Should I just spend the extra $100 or so and purchase new top cover parts etc?
