    The handguard was remarkably fast, once I figured out how to do it... slots were cut on a milling machine in a square blank (barrel channel cut first), then cut the bits that go in the metal caps and finally sliced off the "facets" on a table saw, just kind of eyeballing the angles. Maybe 8 hours total.

    That grip was probably the 4th one I ever made, so it too took a while. I think grips probably took me around 4 hours back when I made that one (they are A LOT faster now )
    Wow.. that is a good chunk of time.. But Sir may I add.. very worth it.. Many thanks for the details

    Other then then the obvious plus of the crankfire.. It has a nice thumb trigger that you can fire it single shot and its a lot less fatiguing then using the 1919s real trigger and your finger... Of course the original trigger was not set up to be pulled a dozen times to get a dozen shots ...After a dozen pulls you were probably looking for a new box of ammo

    The 1919's ( we had 2 of them) were usually mounted in the back of the duce &1/2 on mounts. We had to convoy every morning before day light to the airfield about 10k and go back to where we lived after dark. We were ambushed a few times, it was usually a very quick fire fight and over. Mostly harassment.
    It was just easier to carry and to keep it out of the mud or dust ( depending on the time of the year) when moving them around if you set them down on the ground.

    Me too. I finally got that one this year. It has everything I wanted in one and is a great shooter as well.
