Well,gentlemen...my zeal in my response was because (...blushing...) I did not look close enough and the references to the 1917 clouded my judgement. Therefore,my error post. I looked for a '1917A1' and not the 1919 as shown. See what happens when the bi-focals don't take in all aspects of the ad...? I emailed my error to Rollin...and was so embarassed that I did not include this in my post on the thread.

It's all good, Len. I only wish I could build water cooled guns for that price, lol. No jackets are to be had right now, at any price. But, I am hoping that someone will come along who appreciates the history of the gun on this listing. It's just not for your average buyer, but represents a unique period in the development of the 1919A4.

One day I'll get back to building the Dual Feed guns, just have too much on my plate right now. Still have a nice USGI BCI kit to build, an M37 kit, and one or two more that I will slip in here and there to offer up, as I did with this Westinghouse build.
Lucky#13 would you be interested in selling a M37 kit or parts? Thanks Jeff.N.

Jeff, the only complete kit I have is scheduled to be built into a semi gun at some point. I may be a bit greedy, but I would be giving up too much money to sell just a kit at this point. I do have some other M37 parts, but missing key pieces to put a gun together. The trunnion comes to mind. If there are any specific parts you are in need of, let me know and I'll see if I can spare anything. But I don't really sell a lot of parts anymore, other than the specific line of things that I have produced.

Back Plate, top cover spring for latch, rear sight. What kind of money do you want for the kit.....it mite not be to much for me. I don't expect people to lose money and you never know unless I ask. My cell is 330-715-3532. If it is okay to text or call....I have not been on here very long and don't know if this is okay etiquette to give that out to discuss. Thanks.

I'll give you a call. I've copied your number down. Most people will mask phone numbers by spelling digits phonetically, and also e-mail addresses. Feel free to edit out your number at this point. I am going to take a glance at my M37 stuff before I call. If it's not too late in your time zone, give me about 15-30 minutes.

Thanks for the business from Gettix on the M37 stuff.

Meanwhile, the Westinghouse is sold as well, thanks to a referral from porteroden. Appreciate that, my friend.

It's funny, but I think there are just not that many folks left in the marketplace looking for this kind of a build. Many have already put such a gun together. I've done plenty of custom builds like this over the years for customers. The USGI spec thing is just a bit out of favor, with 7.62 NATO ammo being the lowest cost option if one is buying ammo in a caliber suitable for the Browning. (Unless one does the more elaborate 7.62 x 39 conversion.) So, an Izzy build seems to be the desirable thing. It's just as well, as finding another USGI LSP from a WWI gun is a long shot. This was the last I had in my inventory. The BCI kit I have to build will be USGI, but I am guessing that's a hard sell right now too. It's going to be on the back burner for a while. I have a mostly complete BA kit that has been Izzified, and I have bumped that up to the top of the list if I can squeeze in some work on it here and there, between more urgent builds. I figure it will sell just as an Izzy build, and I doubt the BA factor will really matter in today's marketplace. It will have a lot of proper BA parts, just because. It's also the last BA left side/bottom plate set I have.
