Original U.S. WWII Type Browning 1919A6 Display Machine Gun with Shoulder Stock, Bipod, and Accessories

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Its been a few years since we have had one of these! The Browning 1919A6 was a late WW2 infantry variation of the 1919A4, considered to be the definitive U.S. MG of WWII. The M1919A6 was an attempt to provide US forces with a more portable light machine gun, similar to the German MG34 and MG42 machine guns they were facing. The M1919A6 had a metal buttstock assembly that clamped to the backplate of the gun, and a front barrel bearing that incorporated both a muzzle booster and a bipod similar to that used on the M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR). A lighter barrel than that of the M1919A4 was fitted. The M1919A6 was a heavy (32 pounds) and awkward weapon in comparison with the MG34 and MG42 and was eventually replaced in US service by the M60 machine gun in the 1960s.

Many were supplied to Israel, who converted them to 7.62 NATO. They also utilized a removable bipod, as opposed to one built into the barrel bushing. This allowed it to be easily relocated closer to the receiver. The bipod also swivels side to side about 30 degrees, making it much easier adjust the angle of fire without resetting the bipod.

The M1919 Browning is a .30 caliber medium machine gun that was widely used during the 20th century. The U.S. and many other countries used it as a light infantry, coaxial, mounted, aircraft, and anti-aircraft machine gun, especially during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Although it began to be superseded by newer designs in the later half of the century (such as by the M60 machine gun), it remained in use in many North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries and elsewhere for much longer. It is very similar in design to the larger .50 in (12.7 mm) M2 Machine Gun, the "Ma Deuce", which is also a Browning-designed weapon and is still in NATO service.

IMA is proud to offer a totally non-firing BATF approved display machine gun built from WWII type parts and constructed with precision detail. The top cover opens and most of the original markings remain, this is easily the best and perhaps only non-firing display 1919A6 on the market today. The right side plate is BATF approved non-functional inert reproduction manufactured in the USA with replicated wartime markings. The display gun comes complete with the afore mentioned bipod, carry handle, metal butt stock, and a 25 round belt of inert ammo. Please note that there is no rear top plate included under the rear sight. There is also no trigger assembly.

Unlike other offerings we have had, there are no internal components inside the receiver, however some of these are included separately. These include a partly stripped 7.62 caliber bolt, a barrel extension, and the top cover latch. These do not appear to have been deactivated in any way, though some parts show some light oxidation. The barrel has also not been deactivated, and looks to be in NOS condition, with a great bore.
