This has to be in the top ten.
That is one of the two firearms my wife and I want to add to our NFA collection. The other is an M1918 BAR (below).
There was an Elmore Leonard book, one of his early ones, about a guy coming back from WW I with one of those.
He lives in the back hills of Tennessee and winds up having to use it to protect his family from the mob who are trying to take over the area.
Owning one of those would be awesome!! I can't afford my shooting habits now. I only dream of a NFA collection! But if I had one I would definitely try to include all the oldies. I love the old belt fed autos. The M1918 had belt feed options. The M1919 deserves top 10 status also.
I have only one beltfed in my NFA collection, an HK-21, and it is finicky as hell. It reminds me of a British sports car in that it's down for repairs more often than it's running. Still, it's great as an investment piece, as it has appreciated over five times the original price I paid for it back in 2000!
Wow! The GCA of 86 has been good for you! Terrible for the rest of us lol.
Yeah, it was good thing to buy all our NFA firearms prior to GCA '86, but it sure has hell has put a damper on expanding our collection! About the only thing you can still be (new) at reasonable price are suppressors and I don't really need any more of those!
