    Default My 30 Cal 1919 Replica

    Finished installing the 30 cal 1919 replica on Sparky today.

    The Evike replica gun I bought didn't come with that 45-degree angle piece that locks it in position for driving. Without it, the gun is quite tail heavy and aims at the sky, whirling around loosely.

    You can buy that part, new old stock, of course, but it's quite pricey. Instead, I made use of the pintle that came with the gun (for a ground tripod), a 2" piece of steel gas pipe, and a few hours of metal working. I think it works and looks great.

    Sparky isn't quite so "cute" anymore.

    I love a 1919. I would post mine, but can't. (real) That is a nice setup.

    In the future though, upload the images as an attachment in tapatalk.

    Or is there a difference?

    Right, within tapatalk, upload them as an attachment, not a picture. To people on the forum from a computer, your pictures will only show up as a link.

    build it yourself. Buy a kit and machine your dummy RSP. There are kits out there that are a bit too rough to build into a working gun and those kits are cheaper.

    Here you go. This is available on Evike.com.

    So far, I am VERY happy with it! It's steel, solid, well made -- and if you really feel like it, you can shoot BBs at about 200 rounds per minute out of it. lol
