Does anyone have any information about period cut-a-way 1917 guns or the parts sets?

Have an M2 .50 cutaway and have seen several of these. Cutaway BMGs require registration to be legal unless missing the right plate.
As far as I recall from many years of MG involvement, only one 1917a1 cutaway is around, correctly registered. As for a1917,and I assume you are asking about a BMG, I’ve never heard of one in private hands. Never say never, but if one’s out there, it is a well guarded secret.

I sold the Westinghouse 1917 years ago but I kept several pieces of a cut-a-way 1917 including a complete feed cover assembly, bolt assembly and pistol grip assembly - all original cut-a-way parts.
