    Very nicely done turorial. Thanks for posting the specs on these rivets. I've been wondering how I could duplicate rivets to look like the originals. Now I know...

    Thanks!

    Which rivets are suggested? The "Small" at 5/32" (.156") Rivets or the "Large" 3/16" (.188") rivets? Trunnion and trigger guard holes measured with a digial caliper came out between .165" and .170".

    Largest drill bit that can pass through the trunnion is a #20 (~.157"). Looks like the Small 5/32" would work. It would seem the 3/16" rivet turned down to .177" is still ~.020" too big for the holes. (Still learning)

    You should get the closes that fits the hole without opening it up. If the rivet is a little smaller it will expand to fill the void, even though they are steel they are soft
