Tripod availability?

Does anyone know of someone who may have a 1919 tripod for sale. I have a converted "Semi-Auto" 1919 however, I'm having a heck of a time finding the right tripod with the secondary rear attachment swivel mount.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

The M1919A4 is alot of fun to shoot. But you can go thru a 250 round belt real fast if you don't watch it. LOL
