Video: I Have This Old Gun—Browning Model 1919

The Browning Model 1919, an air-cooled, upgraded version of the water-cooled Model 1917, was the prime machinegun in use by all forces during World War II, and is considered the gun that took the world to final victory over Japanese Imperialism and German Totalitarianism. While some would argue that it is in competition with the Garand, the 1911 and the BAR for the title of most central instrument toward victory during the war, it saw service in more than 20 countries and could be chambered in 10 different cartridges, including .30-06 and 7.62×51 mm NATO. Learn more about this adaptable machinegun, which includes its evolution to variants like the M1919A4 and M1919A6, by watching this “I Have This Old Gun” segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
