    Default Swell neck rivet info

    having a problem locating a source for swell neck rivets in bulk. I have tried several distrubitors and have ordered standard rivets but can find nothing on the swell necks. I am sure this has been covered before but i missed that info. Please help me with a link.Tried Fastenal,MSC industrial supply,and goggle. Thanks

    i know a few people who order in bulk from them
    i think they have the swell necks
    you have to know the diameter you need
    and you might have to trim leangth

    I got all mine from 1 Patriot-of-many. I don't know if he's got more. Contact info is under his name here.

    I was in 2 or 3 of the group buys Bob ran. Sometimes I can't help myself. Excellent deal. As I recall he contracted with a manufacturer to make these rivets to specific dimensions to get best fit on AK builds. I know of no other source for bulk. You could also post on AK sites as a WTB. Someone may have lots left in their home stashes that they no longer need. Curtis ( AKA AK-Builder) may have a good source for bulk. Might ask him.

    BTW - How many are you looking for?


    Did I do that?

    Only place I've found them was at Brainard BSN Rivets
    but their stock sizes are not what you would need...they will do custom runs but who knows how much that would cost.
