So. late to the hobby, as always....and looking for a few tools and parts. I need 1919 bucking bar, trunnion, and left side plate. Anyone? Beuller?
Also need a resource (north Atlanta area would be nice) for somebody that does good parkerizing.
Any assistance is appreciated! Thanks!

I hear you, me too! Don't worry about it, there's still plenty of time to spend your retirement stash!

Bucking bars can be purchased from one of our members, machineman. Here's one of his posts with price and email contact:

Used left side plates come up for sale every now and then, but can be a challenge to find at times. New Left side plates can be purchased from member, ironcreations. Here's a link to his website that will have pricing and contact information:

Although I don't see any on his website or ebay at the moment, he does make them. Send him an email.


Trunnions are another part that's hard to find separately. KMP just made a small run of trunnions, but rather expensive because of the small run. Here's a link to his post:

and a link to their web site:

Might want to see if anyone on the board has one they want to sell!


Can't recommend anyone for parkerizing in your area, but someone else will chime in and help.


Since you are on the east coast, you may want to check out the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in October. Plenty of guys selling parts at this event. Here's a link to their web site:

Excellent response Rob1961!

I just want to add an option for the OP regarding the sideplate and trunion: considering what your'e going to pay for new ones, and how infrequently those items individually come up for sale, you might consider just buying a complete 1919 parts kit and either keeping the duplicate parts as spares; replacing your own parts if the new ones are better; or selling off the duplicate items you won't need once your build is complete to recoup your over-investment.

...but there is something special about brand new parts!

Also keep Rogue Island Arsenal in mind for new production items like the belt feed pawl bracket that you'll likely need if you go with a new production LSP.
