Seldom encountered Argentine sideplate Browning 1919A4 machine gun in .30-06. Argentina manufactured a number of water-cooled Browning machine guns essentially identical to the Colt Model 1928 commercial browning according to Dolf Goldsmith’s Volume II of “The Browning Machine Gun”. This particular gun is marked on the right sideplate, “A.L.A.M.I – CAL 7.65 / D.G.F.M. (Argentine Crest) F.M.A.P. / EA / No 354”. Bottom of barrel extension and bottom of trunnion both bear the number “183”. This gun appears to be a remanufactured gun using an Argentine sideplate of a 1919A4 parts kit. Bolt is unmarked and in-the-white. Sight graduations on sight ladder are not legible due to parkerized refinishing. NFA electronic registry indicates “IMPORTED NFA FIREARM” and model as “1919” indicating this gun came into the United States this way. Canvas cover. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent matte grey refinish with pitting in evidence under the finish on the all-metal rear handgrip and some light surface corrosion on the barrel shroud. No spring attachment to the bottom of the handgrip. Bore is near excellent, shiny, and bright. Mechanics are crisp. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS ONLY ELIGIBLE FOR TRANSFER TO ACTIVE FFL/SOT DEALERS AS A PRE-86 DEALER SAMPLE. Pre-86 dealer sample machine guns may be retained privately by sole proprietor FFL/SOT dealer after they relinquish their licenses, with BATF approval. JWK 2021-11-066
