M1919 Machinegun Replica
Attention: the replica features a completely black barrel - photographs with orange cap are only for preview.
A unique, made from steel true replica of M1919 Browning machine gun. A medium-calibre machine gun, which originally fires .30 (7,62 x 63mm) ammunition. The set includes an ammunition belt based on the original with a set of dummy rounds. This machine gun has been widely used during 20th century. It has seen use in WWII, Korean War and Vietnam War. M1919 was used as an infantry support weapon. It was positively regarded for its low mount and low weight (in its class). The infantry version used a tripod, however the machine gun was also mounted on vehicles - mostly on off-road vehicles, armoured personnel carriers, tanks and amphibious vehicles. Later variants of the machine gun were used also as weapons for the Airforce, both as fixed (offensive) and mobile (defensive) weaponry.
M1919 comes in two separate boxes - one for the machine gun, one for the tripod. The entire machine gun and tripod are made from the same steel. The set has to be assembled by the user - the process is accurately outlined in the manual.
The machine gun is not the lightest piece of weaponry. The weight of the entire set is ~15,3 kg. However, the machine gun itself is very well-balanced - the centre of weight is located ideally beneath the mount of the tripod, which makes the usage of the entire set very pleasant. Manoeuvring the machine gun and its usage will provide the user with a truly realistic experience. Steel elements include the receiver, magazine and all assembly elements. Metal parts include the outer barrel, its shroud, the dust cover and majority of moving parts. The bipod was made from steel.
The BB slide from the magazine to the machine gun is attached to the side. The pipe is attached to the hole that introduces the BBs into the chamber. The box can store 5000 BBs, so emptying it takes quite some time. The magazine is powered by four AA batteries (not included in the set).
Similarly to the original, the replica also serves to provide covering fire. The machine gun was designed to allow for pinning down enemies with high rate of fire. Small muzzle velocity ~400 FPS and long barrel (500 mm long) allow for an astounding range. High quality internal gearbox parts allow for squeezing the trigger for prolonged periods of time without worry about damaging the interior of the replica. The motor does not overheat and parts that fit well together allow the user to refrain from inspecting the insides of the replica for a long time.
When it comes to functionality, M1919 is not complicated. Its assembly, after some practice, takes only short while and connecting all the wires is very simple. The magazine has a red button, which causes the box to feed BBs once it is pressed. Since the ammo box itself cannot be attached to the machinegun - the set includes a shelf, which can be screwed to the replica in order to place the ammo box on it. The machine gun can be used by one person, however, during transport an extra pair of hands will prove useful for grabbing the tripod.
M1919 machine gun by 6mmProShop is an ideal addition for re-enactment groups of Allies and Axis armies from and after the WWII.

It is the spped of bb, while its leaving the innerbarrel of replica. This speed is measured in FPS (Feet Per Second).
1 FPS = 0,3 m/s
1 J = 99 m/s
1 J = 326,7 FPS
|Propulsion / Powered by:|
Indications v2, v3, v6 does not mean the level of advance, but only shape of gearbox skeleton which was used and selected by the manufacturer depending on the capabilities of the body of the replica. For example, a models of the M4/M16 family, MP5, have a v2 gearbox, while the AK family have gearbox v3.
|Type of fire:|
The length of the replca is measured between the two most distant points of each other. Different models have several of these values, because of its design allows to increase or decrease it length (eg. folding stock or extended flash hider).
|Inner barrel length [mm]:|
This is a value that includes the weight of the replica, magazine and other accessories that are include in set without a battery, charger, cleaning rod, etc., etc.
|Magazine capacity [pcs]:|
Hop-Up system is used for overclocking bb during the shot (putting it in rotation), through which, it extends its flight path. Acting laws of physics make that bb lift up, while the gravitational force take it down. Appropriate adjustment of Hop-Up, will compensate for these two factors, which result in long and straight flight for longer distance and be greater focus shot (to improve accuracy).
Blow back is a simulation system of the cocking lever - it imitates the work of it as the equivalent sharp. This system raises the realism and adds a lot more experience during shooting.

rechargeable battery is characterized by high efficiency
current-carrying capacity, but there are disruptive effect on memory.
Should be unloaded and loaded in the full cycle, ie, it is recommended
to fully discharge, and after unloading must charge the battery
immediately without leaving it for a long time in a discharged state.
