    Cloth Ammo Belt 1919A4

    I got an email on this from SARCO. I don't know how hard these are to get, or if this is a great deal, but remember them being talked about. So for what it is worth----

    Does anyone know if these are newly made or surplus? Has anyone tried using these with .308? I only ask because some of the new made belts are really tight when using .308. But if these work good I'll buy some.

    Maybe one of our 1919 experts will chime in with some info on these. I plan on having a 1919A4 by years end, so would not mind buying a few just to have on hand.

    no tabs and no markings equals NOT USGI and NOT Israeli


    The IMA 100 round belts that were a pain in the arse to load had a brass grommet on the ends so this is not the IMA belts, but who knows where they were made and for what caliber.

    For what its worth I had a decent time using the IMA belts but I had to soak them in water overnight, and then load them as far as they would load with the belt loader and then flop them over a line and let them sit and let the weight of the ammo stretch the belts some. Unload, get soaking wet again, load and then let set and stretch again. Eventually the belts would let the rounds go all the way in, but the timing of the belt pockets wasn't quite right for the USGI belt loader so it would jam every couple of rounds and I would have to reset the loader. A royal pain to be sure, but once loaded the belts shot fine.

    you cant go wrong, the price is certainly right

    this is a detailed description down to the blueprint of what constitutes a USGI belt

    Thanks for the info. What belt is the best cloth belt in .308 to look for? Any certain color, tabs, markings or country of origin? I run Izzy links in mine, both for .308 and 8mm, but I'd like to have a few cloth belts if I can find some good ones.

    I haven't looked for browning stuff for years so im far out of the loop, but you used to be able to buy the Israeli made 1919 belts with the brass tabs at whatacountry.com but unsure if they still have any. If I recall correctly they only had the 100 round belts. You could tell they were specifically for the browning in 308 and made in Israel by the Hebrew.
