    Default Got my triggerguard jig finished!!!

    Well, I could have bought a triggerguard jig or built my own. I decided to mill mine from a single block instead of welding one from several pieces.

    Everything is 1/2" cold roll steel. The plate that actually forms the rivets was milled down to 3/8" to clear the center support on prefab receivers. It was also milled to clear the lower rails. The first forming plate was pushed out of shape by the rivets when I tested it. Fortunately, I milled a longer piece than I needed so there was plenty for a second block. I'm going to heat-treat the second one to keep it from deforming. The main block held up really well, so no heat-treat will be needed on it.

    I am going to upgrade this design by adding a couple threaded holes for a clamp plate.

    I found it easier to thread the clamp plates and have a plain hole in the jig



    I also have been using a one piece tool for setting the rivets. Can do all 5 at once. Tip in front fits below center support if installed.
