    A new 1919 is born

    Sarco Parts kit is in UPS's hands. This showed up today @ my local FFL and a form 4473 later:

    I think I can see a plan forming. Do you hope to have it ready by July?

    Hell yes! I asked the gunsmith if it could be ready by May 2020 and he said he'll have it done in three weeks.

    That sounds great. Are you doing it in 30-06 or 308?

    I chose 308 as I'd rather keep my M2 ball collection dedicated to the Garand The 308 also matches my bolt rifle and M1A so there is some synergy there.

    Got the parts, and shipped them right back out with the side plate to the gun smith whom will get it Friday. I think now might be a good time to buy some stock in UPS.

    Got some more goodies to take some pics of, stay tuned...

    Edit: Barrel inspection looks good. Nothing bad in the bore and the muzzle is in great shape.

    He'll clean and inspect all the parts. If anything is missing or damaged he'll obtain replacements @ my cost. The service includes the necessary machining, build, test, and parkerize. I'm using the same gentleman that made the side plate.

    Luckily while I'm waiting in anticipation for the gunsmith to do his job I'll have plenty of time to read through these and other forums/resources about some of the particulars about operating one of these. That said, I do know I'll need to measure the headspace regularly. Any suggestions on a good tool for that?

    Got an original canvas cover. Being original and in who knows what warehouses for so long it is a little on the funky side. What is the best way to clean it? Take it to the dry cleaner?

    Tripod and pintle from International Military Antiques. The pintle looks rusty in the pic but that's just an optical illusion. It's all black oxide and still covered in shipping grease. Traversing and Elevation Mechanism from AIM surplus is on the way.

    you don't need a special tool for headspacing,

    just follow this procedure, this is the method I use and it works to properly headspace it. headspace procedure start at 5:17, before that he shows you how to disassemble it. I would check headspace before every shoot, but that's just me.





    BTW, unless you plan at putting the rounds in the link by hand using a pair of pliers, I would suggest you also get a linking machine
