AMD65 side plate installation

576 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  steve10
Yet another question:

I am going to install a side plate on my AMD65 build. I've never done this before, and found this quite helpful video tutorial

[video=youtube;Ljh8aeYqWuU]]YouTube - Drilling The Scope Rail Build your own AK AK47[/video]

However, the rear hole he uses is for a rivet in a standard trunnion. The rear trunnion on the AMD65 does not use the standard rivet pattern.

Should I simply drill a hole where it would normally be? How should I locate that hole? Does it matter as long as the other holes are consistent with the error?

Thanks for your help

Locate the rail parallel with the upper rails, and at the same drop as a standard receiver rail from those same top rails. It won't hurt a thing to add a rivet hole, just be sure the internal head isn't interfering with the FCG or safety.
Thats what I needed to know. Thanks!
