The M1919 is by far one of the most iconic and unique American firearms of all time. Modeled after the famous M1919 Browning machine gun, the 6mmProShop M1919 is an authentic replica of the irreplaceable American squad support weapon for WWII re-enactment and collectors. This limited edition replica, with nearly full CNC and machine milled construction, was made with the intention of producing an M1919 with the authentic look and feel of the real thing. What's exciting is that 6mmProShop redesigned the Airsoft version of the M1919 to be more than a just collectors piece. 6mmProShop in collaboration with A&K outfitted the M1919 with a reliable M249 gearbox that is LiPo ready and fully reinforced for realistic rapid firing.On the outside the 6mmProShop M1919 boasts some hefty construction with heavyweight materials. Overall the gun alone weighs an impressive 18lbs lending a realistic feel in handling. The 6mmProShop M1919 includes a stamped steel 5000rd box magazine that sits nicely in the attached magazine tray, making it simple to mount up to a tripod and provide some serious support.
The tried and true A&K M249 gearbox was selected by the EMG team not only because it boasts some robust construction right out of the box, but it also has a large offering of compatible upgrade and replacement parts, making it possible for the first time in Airsoft history to not just own an M1919 replica, but to be able use it on a regular basis.
The 6mmProShop M1919 is a worldwide limited edition run and is surely something you dont want to pass up on for your arsenal.

The EMG vision is to manufacture products the world has never seen before; products we would put our name on, and products that hit the spot! "EMG" (Evike Manufacturing Group) was spawned from the realization that if you want something done exactly the way you want it, you need to do it yourself, and we did just that.
We took our 16 years of knowledge as the market's lead retailer, our network of 300+ superior manufacturers, to work with inspiring top innovators in the firearms industry. That combined with the vision to invest into the Airsoft industry, an industry we believe in, EMG was born. (Write a review) "Very high quality gun, shoots amazingly, but you must remember it's weight. I recommend buying it for Mil-Sim and not as a normal primary. Nonetheless, awesome replica.
You may also add 3/8 PEX, Plastic pipe, tapped for a millimeter of your tracer units adapter to make it work with a tracer unit. The price was 100% worth it for the realism "This beast....is a BEAST!!
It is amazing realistic, perfect in finish, and a TON of fun to shoot.
You only live it once, live it full! Get it! "The M1919A4, currently made by EMG, is an interesting weapon which will have a limited, but devoted fan base. I purchased mine from Evike and it arrived about a year later, after numerous production delays. That is to be expected with unusual guns, especially larger guns like this one. The wait was worth it.
The gun arrived in a nice, well packaged box. All the parts were secured and totally intact, as opposed to the Viva Arms M1919 I bought from AirsoftGI, a few years ago. The construction of the gun appears to be identical to the Viva Arms gun with the exception of the EMG using a Matrix M249 gearbox and having a easily removable barrel jacket and muzzle.
The gun, judging by the tags and labels, appeared to be assembled by Evike. There were odd bits of paper with "Evike" written on them, inside various assemblies of the gun. There was also a tag stating the test fire results, FPS and ROF. I gave the gun a look over and set it up on a tripod. The ammo box is similar to the Viva Arms gun, but it slaves off the trigger for feed signaling. It also uses a collar with set screws to attach the feed tube to the hopup chamber. Both are definite improvements over the Viva Arms gun. The box tray, which mounts to the side of the gun isn't really proper unless the gun was vehicle mounted. It is needed to keep the feed system effective, but it limits the traverse of the gun.
Well, the gun was ready to go. I fired .20g BBs through it. They spit out the muzzle, going about 20 feet before falling to the ground. There was no hopup to adjust, so it was time to open the gun up and find the problem. Upon disassembly, I found the air nozzle was split in two pieces. I also found the fixed hopup was not aligned properly with the barrel.
I did two things to make the gun work. I opened up the gearbox and replaced the nozzle and made sure the gears were shimmed. The next step was to take the plastic hopup chamber and drill a small hole above where the hopup hole is located on the barrel. I threaded the hole and installed a 6-32 set screw, which gave me an adjustable hopup with the set screw acting as the hopup nub. I installed a Promethius tight bore barrel, which was a bit longer than the original barrel by about 30mm. This brought the inner barrel clear up to the base of the muzzle, giving it stablization. I reassembled the gun, set it up and gave it a shot. The BBs now fired out at least 150 with great accuracy. Problems solved.
The traverse and elevation unit, which must be purchased seperately, is a quality bit of machining which makes the VA version look homemade. The gun does come with a pintle, which is also well machined. It seems the pintle offered seperately by Evike, does not fit. The main bolt seems to have been copied from a tripod used for a .50 cal M2, as it is too large to fit through the pintle ears of the M1919. I used a replica tripod from another source, so I cannot comment on the EMG product.
While these special production guns usually need some attention when they arrive in the hands of the end user, the EMG gun was a good improvement over the VA gun. The adjustable hopup was an easy modification. The stock parts will work fine but you may wish to upgrade as they fail. The M249 gearbox seems like a stout unit and easily upgradable. The finish on the gun is good. The barrel jacket may look better in a grey parkerized color instead of the glossy black it comes with. The sights are fine. The rear sight is adjustable but the peep hole was not cast in the sight block. It was easy to disassemble and drill a hole in the sight block, to get a more realistic sight arrangement.
All in all a good gun. Some minor mods and upgrades with make it excellent. Read More Reviews Write a Review
