Building a 1917a1 semi auto

Postby 42rocker » Wed Aug 29, 2018 2:00 am

Well I have been working on parts for the last few weeks and thought it was time to finally build a 1917a1.

Goal to have the 1917a1 build and ready to shoot at my "Builders and belt fed shoot" on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Nov 25th, 2018. Can I do it???? Think so. Lets see if I can get it done.

Need to finish picking a few parts yet. As I'm not willing to pony out any more money than I need to I'm going to have to weld up a few holes on the left side plate. Still need to order rivets and a semi trigger.
Please check out the pics as to what I'm starting with. As I'm not willing to spend the needed money to buy a great blacksheep front end I'm going to use a 1928 front end that I own.

What do you think of my start or what are you building?

box parts - need to think about what I'm going to use on the left side plate.
