M2HB

Just got it back after I gave up on trying to complete it myself. Figured if I could not get it done in 4 years it wasn't getting done. Didn't help that my Dad who was the machinist passed away last year.
Here it is with its little brother, can't wait to try her out. Its totally ridiculous and not practical but, Merica!

I’m a firm believer that everyone should have at least one gun that is totally ridiculous and not practical at all for the same reason you stated. 🇺🇸

We are taking bets on how fast the police show up when we shoot it on my cousins property

Nah, not unless they are already in the neighborhood. I vote 20 minutes.

Also, damn nice! A simple 1919 semi-auto (well hell, or full auto) is on my bucket list. An M2HB...my fantasies aren’t that grand.

I used to think the 1919a4 was big and heavy, not any more.

I’ve shot a lot of different guns, but a 1919 is one that i’ve never shot. It seems like it would be awkward with that single pistol grip rather than spade grips and the trigger so far forward. Is it?

It doesn't bother me but it was hard for my kids to pull the trigger when they were younger. You can get spade grips for the 1919m also.

Come on out to the TCA event at the AGC 200 yard range on Saturday afternoon (10/5) and you might just be able to find out personally.

My son actually shot it about 2 months ago at the TCA shoot. He was smiling the rest of the day.

I forgot to put tomorrows shoot on my calendar so my day is already fairly full
