Weapon Background[edit]

The Browning M1919 machine gun is a .30 caliber Medium Machine Gun (MMG), chambered to utilize .30-06 Springfield rounds. It was belt-fed, with a normal belt containing 75 rounds; it also used a pistol-esque grip and odd, yet functional iron sights. Altogether, it weighed 31lbs.

The gun began production in 1919 (hence M1919), it was the resulting solution for a more portable machine gun than the M1917 whilst still being able to lay down heavy fire on enemies. When the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge began to phase out the .30-06 cartridge, the newer M1919s were chambered to utilize the newer rounds. It saw more prominent use in World War II, and it was mounted on river craft in the Vietnam War, during the 1960's and '70's. Although it is now phased out due to the arrival of the lighter M60 7.62x51mm NATO general purpose machine gun and the FN M249 SAW 5.56x45mm NATO light machine gun.

However, by and large the most common variant of the series was the M1919A4. Production blueprints of the new variant were complete in late 1936, and production soon followed. The driving force behind the development of this variant was the suffering reliability of the 18-inch barrel of previous versions, which did not produce enough recoil to cycle the action reliably. The bull barrel was made much thicker and was lengthened to 24 inches like the M1917. Various other small adjustments to the design were made, such as moving the front sight from the barrel jacket to the receiver, which made it easier to mount the gun on vehicles. The design of the barrel jacket was changed to include circular holes instead of long slits of earlier models, and a recoil booster in the muzzle end improved reliability. The recoil buffer assembly was also a new addition to the design between A3 and A4 development, designed to reduce the impact of the bolt hitting the backplate.

The M1919A4 was used in both fixed and flexible mounts, by infantry and on vehicles. It was also widely exported after World War II and continues to be used in small numbers around the world. Two variants were developed specifically for vehicular use, the M1919A5, with an extended charging handle, and the M1919A4E1, a sub-variant of the M1919A4 refitted with an extended charging handle.

It is recognized as one of the precursors to the current 7.62x51mm machine guns, and one of the most prominent MMGs of World War ll.

Trivia

  • XM174 Grenade Launcher was based from M1919A4. It features 12-round drum mag, and was used in early 1970 during Vietnam War until was replaced by more reliable Mk19 Grenade Launcher.
  • She appears to be quite short, as the M1919A4 is about 38" or 0.96 meters in length, and it reaches her shoulders in her default damaged portrait. Also, one of her adjutant lines is an indignant "I'm not a shorty!"
