Just recieved a colt 1928 tripod, But I can't mount my 1917a1 into it. Back fits ok but the Front pin holes are a good half inch to low. The gun pintles and the front part of the gun hits the main tripod support yoke. There seems to be ears on the side of the tripod side plates which might be pivited upwards but that would make the mount half as strong and hold the gun sloppy as hell. Is there an adapter or something I need to get or make?

I got the same thing. and the only thing that i can see is disasemble and mill the thing to fit. but who wants to start cutting a antique mount? the trunions on the original wc is about 1/8 inch shorter then the a4. some of the m35 tripods (28) will fit the a4 but some wont. best of luck Badger Bob
