Just joined the sight and wanted to introduce myself. I?ve been a gun enthusiast all my life. I?m an avid hunter, shooter, reloader and collector. I purchased my first belt feed about two years ago and couldn?t be happier. I built my first AK last year and I?m currently on build #4.

About 8 months ago a friend introduced me to your web sight and the idea of building my own 1919. At the time I was already looking for something more economical to shoot. I have since purchased a kit from OOW, side plate from Brass Cartridge and a Black Bear rivet set. I got my internals machined and I have the trigger and sear ready to go. Haven?t started building yet, still finishing some other projects. I?m hoping to get started this month.

The main reason I joined was to thank all you guys for taking the time to share your wealth of knowledge with new comers like myself. I know what it?s like to struggle through a build learning all the lessons the hard way. Thanks to you guys tips and tutorials I know this build will be much smoother.

Thanks again??.:)

More Thanks

I echo the above. Thank you all for maintaining such a wealth of knowledge on one site.
I'm pretty new here too, and get to pick up my ORF 1919a4 this Friday.. I thought about building a kit, but decided that having a gun that was built by a reputable builder would make it easier for me to "prove" that I wasn't doing anything nefarious considering that I live in CA.

I appreciate all the helpful information that's been shared with me since I jumped in with both feet!
Thanks Mark..............


I can certainly understand buying the manufactured gun. I lived in California for a couple of years back in the 90's. It's wasn't great back then but I'm sure that's nothing compared to the restrictions now. I would probably do the same if I were still there.

I feel for you man.......
Welcome aboard and happy shooting.
Well come;; we are all friends here

Welcome, and say goodbye to any income(disposable or not).:D

Jump in....the waters just fine....

I have learned a lot and always will try to help out whenever I can......

Welcome aboard! I'm a relative newbie as well, having recently finished my first build. There are alot of good folks with tons of good info here.
Cam- Welcome to the brotherhood! I think you will find that building your 1919 is as much fun as shooting it will be.

And Slick- I don't know if you are in No Cal or So Cal, but we will do another So Cal building party in the fall. Get yourself a kit and we'll show you how much of the fun you are missing. ;) We have guys that drive down from the north to attend.

Thanks for the encouragement and support. I look forward to many new friendships. :D
