At the Range: Browning 1919 Machine Gun

by Guns & Ammo TV   |  March 14th, 2014 3

Among his extensive list of successful machine guns, one of John M. Browning’s most famous designs was the 1919 machine gun.

Originally chambered in .30-06, the 1919 improved upon Browning’s previous designs in several ways. Most notably, the 1919′s air-cooled barrel was more portable and greatly reduced amount of weight soldiers had to haul around the battlefield.

Browning’s 1919 machine gun saw combat in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Many of Browning’s designs still thrive today, but the 1919 is an unforgettable classic.

Check out this video of the 1919 at the range, and be sure to tune in to Guns & Ammo TV Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the Sportsman Channel.

    I fired one of those in Las Vegas; I’m pretty sure it pissed off the rest of the folks on the range, but it was the highlight of my trip.

    As Armorer for the 3RD AVN BN ’63-’66 we had 6 of them that could be attached to the H-13 Rotor Wings, and we never had a Jamb or Miss-fire..
