Hi, will these fit on a 1919a4? I just got my first 1919 today. I can hardly wait to shoot it!

Thank you,

It will yes, need to basically demil the kit
Pull the 1919 sight bracked

Get a 1917 Feed Tray and Sight Assembly
1917 Feed tray latch

Put it back together, not an overly hard job but its not just drop in by any means.

From what I have seen, the one on the right is an Argentinian produced (under license) 1928 Colt water jacket. The Argentinian water jackets did not have a steel insert in the trunnion but otherwise are as fine a quality as the original colt made ones (IMHO). 01.074 is the Argentinian numbering system so it is 74th one made in Argentina (serial number 74).

The Colt US produced 1928 water jackets (on the right) had the serial number stamped on the trunnion (serial number 120 in this case) and on the brass end caps from 1 through 9XX. Most have the steel insert in the trunnion but I have seen some that didn't.

Hybrids do exists where the trunnion is US Colt 1928 and the end cap is Argentinian. Probably a repair sometime during its life.
