M2/M3 .50bmg build ?
Anybody here built one of these? Anything significantly different than building a 1919? ( I built one during the group build earlier this year).
Any legal issues in MA?
Ever since I built the 1919a4 - and saw Acme.Armament's .50 sitting there - I have had it in my head to build an M2 or an M3.
Saving for the kit now - just wondering what I am getting into......

Not much different as far as the gun goes. M2/3 is just bigger . Go to, http://www.m2hb.net/m2phpBB3/index.php and there is good info in the Semi Building area and the Riveting area.
No legal issues that I know of for building semi-auto. No building full-auto unless you like the company of males at night.
We can do that build here if you get a few people to build. Would have to be half as many builds as the guns take up that much space.

Adam, I think you're gonna need a bigger stump.

I've managed to accumulate a couple more 1919a4 kits, and an FN30 kit over the last few months. At some point when I get my workshop done - I'll have a good place to start pounding rivets. I wouldn't mind doing an M2/M3 group build - I'm not so sure there would be that many people signing up though - the 50's start to get a bit pricey.
And yes - I'll be staying away from the govt. housing facilities if I can.

I think I saw some decent size anvils for sale at Harbor Freight a while back.....
Yeah - I think OOW had a few kits for sale, I seem to remember seeing that. I was going to get another kit from Sarco - but I lucked out and found a guy who was advertising on 1919a4.com who had a few kits. I got one - and after checking out the condition when I received it - decided to get another .
The 1919a4 stuff appears to be drying up. Best to get in now while the getting is good. The M2/M3 stuff is going to dry up sooner or later too - I figure it's a good time to get a kit - even if I don't get around to building it for a while.

i'd positively melt if i got to build a M2/3. unfortunately i'd never be able to feed it much less afford the initial cost.free flintoid!
