Description:

This is a very desirable and unique rifle for the US Military collector. These rifles were manufactured using original GI M1919 parts set that was assembled on to a new made NFA-legal semi-automatic side plate/receiver. During the manufacturing process they were engineered or remanufactured to be able to fire in a semi-automatic mode only making them completely NFA/ATF compliant. The Model 1919 machine gun was developed and fielded shortly after WWI and was used extensively throughout WWII, Korea and even into Vietnam. They proved to be one of the most durable, reliable and effective machine guns and were heavily used by the US Army and USMC. This model was made to duplicate the weight, feel, functioning and firing (in a semi-automatic mode) of the original 1919A6 guns. The side of the receiver is marked "U.S. GOVERNMENT/ MODEL 1919 A4/A6 MACHINE GUN/ CALIBER .30 SEMI AUTO/ VERNONIA OR." over serial number, 000097. This rifle is complete with a spare barrel and barrel cover, original .30 Cal M2 tripod, (dated 1938), T&E mechanism and pintle, with a box full of metal ammunition links and a walnut display stand to display or mount just the rifle itself.

Rating Definition:

Excellent overall, with 99% of the parkerized finish overall. The rifle appears to be test fired only.
