    This is GREAT! Found this on how to do descent rivets instead of bolts. Found the ‘Poor Man’s’ flat bender. The bolt cutters/rivet tool. Now I’m good to go! All I need now are some flats, a parts kit/set and a couple of 10 round magazines (a California thing).

    All I need now is one of these for the trigger mount and I should have a build by summer. Maybe….

    Here's a few pics with a scale. Those are all with the squeezer closed, "makin rivets". I guess I still remain "challenged" 'cause I have one pic with the scale on 32nds and the other on 64ths, stay frosty when you read the measurements.

    The rivet can fill it, but those are best riveted using what are called "swell-neck" rivets, that already have a cone-shaped neck under the head that fits the countersunk area. A regular rivet is not guaranteed to fill the countersink completely or evenly.
