    Default Trigger Guard Rivet Jig

    Just wondering if anyone had any blueprints or measurements for a non-weld, trigger guard rivet jig. I have found a few CNC shops that I may approach to see if they can make me one.

    Why not just buy one from Ak-Builder.
    Freedom is not free. Some will perish to preserve it for the many. Just as our Forefathers did before us, we must take up the battle and not waver. Victory is our only option.

    Save a lotta cash and do it yourself.

    Look in the yellow pages under "Scrap metal". Scrap yards will have various sizes of scrap steel. Find some "C" channel that is at least 2 inches tall. pick up a few other scraps of various thicknesses of bar stock. you'll need some thin stuff for shims.

    Now, go home and use an abrasive cut off saw ($50 from harbor freight). cut two C-channel sections about 6 inches in length.

    Now, set your trigger guard on top of the two pieces of c channel to determine the proper width. use the scrap bar stock to sandwich on the ends.

    once you get the correct width to let your trigger guard slip between the c-channel, use clamps to hold it tight. Now drill through the c channel and sandwiched barstock. two bolts per side should be plenty.

    now use a couple pieces of bar stock to drill your rivet dimples and you're set. use your trigger guard as a template for spacing of the dimples.

    clear as mud? here's a picture.

    then ya use a scrap chunk of bar stock to flatten the trigger guard rivets in your press.

    half the fun of building AKs is building the fixtures. i've made a flat bending fixture and trigger fixture with only am abrasive cut off, bench grinder and belt sander. no welding since i don't have one.

    hee hee, i just noticed in my picture (the last one) there is a chunk taken out of the drywall. that's from a barrel pin that wouldn't budge. i cranked too hard, the press pin when crooked, and shit shot all over the place. i always wear safety glasses. that's why.

    last time my press went crazy on me it hit me in the chest with a bolt I was using to press the pin out, glad it didn't make a hole like the one in your wall, I however wasn't wearing the goggles, "at the time" I always do now. it hurt like ***K

    Well, as much as I wanted to make one myself, I went ahead and ordered one from AK-Builder. I did not select the rush order box, so I hope it doesnt take long to ship.

    Even though they cost me more to have made I can ship them out faster. Don't be surprised to get an e-mail with a tracking number by tomorrow.
