Wow. I have a barrel and shroud for that build, got it in a trade of MG parts several years back. I was going to assemble it onto a post sample 1919. I have what I believe to be a COLT set of spades as well for it, with the trigger correct frame. Will post pics in a few days, I have a Compliance inspection Tues..

Hell of beautiful build. You guys amaze me with y’alls builds and collections. Can’t wait to see some of it in person. Hadn’t really heard much on the T13, very cool and neat lookin and definitely a different build. Detail on everything is just amazingly awesome. So, One thought though, how does one headspace the weapon without having to take out the internals? Keep up the great work!!

With the USGI style barrel notches and lock spring, that's very easy to do. Not so easy with the Israeli system though, as that dog-leg spring and the deep, square notches make it virtually impossible to rotate the barrel. Can't usually get the lock spring out far enough in that case. But the barrel rotates easily with the USGI design. The 1919A6 was the closest production version of this, in terms of the barrel being capable of inserting from the jacket end, twisted to get past that lock spring on the barrel extension, and able to easily rotate with all assembled in place.

No one would know about the T-13 (probably) if not for the reference and pics in Dolf's Vol I, though it may also be in Hard Rain by Frank Iannamico. It's pretty obscure, but totally cool. I think we talked about that book on the phone today. Get it when you can!

Hew Russ any chance you will bring it to Knob creek so we can look at this piece of gun porn?
Had not given it a thought to be honest but if I have room I can bring it. I am trying to get 8 tables for the creek because I am bringing a ton of stuff this year. I think both the T13 and Calvary gun would make a nice display but I doubt many guys would be that interested in them.

Thanks guys and Brass I think this one will get as dirty as the rest of my guns lol like I ever have time to shoot anyways. Now all I have to do is figure out what is next because I have soo many to get finished, maybe after the 34's it will be the Delisle's or the 1918 aircraft 30 or the Colt 50 or the ANM2 twins? Decisions decisions

Getting one done just does not feel like I have accomplished anything because there are always at least 2 dozen more behind it.... or more lol I stopped counting years ago.
