Interest in historical and reproduction military equipment can saddle you with difficulty in sourcing the parts you need for customization and repair of that equipment, regardless of what it is. This is, however, particularly true of machine guns, and even more true of historically significant or popular models. If you’re into reenactment or even historical shooting, it can be helpful for you to keep in touch with a supplier from which you can find the parts and Machine Gun Kits you’ll need from time to time.
Take, for example, the Lewis Gun, which was one of the most influential and historically significant models of machine gun ever produced. Designed in 1911 in America, the Lewis Gun went on to be adopted by British forces and saw widespread action throughout the world during the Great War.
The Lewis Gun made exemplary use of the British .303 and the air-cooled platform featured a 47 round circular magazine that sat atop the action. The Lewis Gun was remarkable in that it could attain a firing rate of up to 600 rounds per minute through adjustment of the recoil spring that helped to regulate action speed. It was widely distributed among British forces along the Western Front in the First World War and came to be highly respected by its operating crews and feared by its enemies. It was one of the most reliable guns in use during the war and was one of the first automatic weapons deployed for use in air campaigns.
Enough introduction – the Lewis Gun was widely influential and thus the platform and parts are highly sought after and somewhat difficult to find. That being the case, if you’re looking for parts for a Lewis Gun, head right to SarcoInc.com, where you will find extractors, bolts, springs, gas tubes and many more tough to find parts, right on their site.
As another example, say you are familiar with the Browning M1919 and need parts or machine gun kits for that model. Arguably as influential as the Lewis Gun, the M1919, an improvement over the M1917, saw equally widespread use among U.S. throughout many of its 20th century global conflicts.
Visit Sarco Inc. if you need parts or a kit for this historically significant platform and you’ll be just as pleased with what you can find there. Not only will you find parts like sights, barrel locks, strikers and more for the M1919, but you’ll find kits as well. Take a look at their 1919A4 .30-06 Parts Set, which includes all the parts you need to make a historically accurate dummy gun or functional semi-automatic model. This particular example of their machine gun kits contains all the parts necessary to build a functional M1919A4 except the right-hand side plate and rivets. Even if you only need a part or two from the kit to keep around as a spare for your model or to make repairs, the kit is well worth it as parts for M1919’s can be difficult to come by.
