I have a Sokolov Russian steel machine gun mount used for the Maxim machine gun. Though the 1919 and the M2 .50 cal will also drop in this mount and work. This does not have a bullet shield but one can easily be made with 1/4" plate if you decide you need a bullet shield. This is a very heavy bulky item. It makes for a sturdy MG mount for your collection or as an investment. Local pickup only, I will drive a short distance to deliver. Looking for $400 or trades.
