The M-1919 was produced by the US Army after they saw a need in the 1930s for an air-cooled machine gun. Based on the M-1917 design, the M-1919A4 (pictured above) was mounted on a quick-release tripod or on vehicles. The machine gun had a heavier barrel than the M-1917 and a slower rate of fire.
Another variant of the Browning design was the M-1919A6, which fitted the M-1919 with a bipod, shoulder stock, and pistol grip, as well as a lighter barrel. The M-1919A6 was designed for use as a light machine gun, but that role was more often taken by the BAR.
