Just to pile on here, Bob came by my house this weekend to deliver one of these beauties to me. What a wonderful replica! Absolutely stunning when you see it in real life! Mine is an AC Sparkplug mfr., and I couldn't be more pleased. Bob Connor is clearly a gifted machinist and yet equally a wonderful gentleman with whom I'm spent several pleasant hours chatting about everything under the sun. It is always a pleasant suprise when you meet folks like Bob, and there are so many I've met in this great hobby.

Thanks again Bob!

Very nice work, no doubt about it. I've built M2HB semis, so I know how much work doing one of these can be. In my experience, building a Display Gun is even more work, in some respects, than a live gun. The semi's are more complicated than full auto, and the Dummy build just creates more custom work to do. Well done, and glad to hear the vendor is such a stand up guy.

Hey thank you for you compliment ! I think your M1919A4 is indeed the best dummy .30 out there.
I have built many of them (A4, A6 and M1917A1) and I can see I'm gonna have to revisit my design.
It sure was a hassle to get them BATF approved, especially the internal operating parts, and any design change will need re-approval.
I don't know if it's worth it. Think I'll leave the .30's to you!

Your experience and mine with ATF show how they give different answers to different people. They have told me no moving parts in the dummy guns, no working internals. Must depend on who you speak to. But it also may be that it depends on how the gun is assembled. Drive screws, or threaded screws are used in some I have seen, as opposed to riveting, which is considered permanent. That's how they ruled on semis; if riveted, no welding required. In any case, I thank you for your comments on my .30s. I do admire your work, and am glad to have found out about you, in case I get a request for an M2 Display.

Ill have to post the picture but I have a picture of a early colt 50 with the oval holes barrel trunion on a M113 in Graf Germany in 93 with the 11ACR. That would be around 60 plus years after it was made?
