Depending on what your building the rivet sizes vary. This is due to the different front and rear trunnions that are available. About the only rivet that is consistant with all builds is the triggerguard and centersupport rivets.

I have provided pictures of the rivets purchased in a group buy. The first is the front trunnion swell-neck rivet (it goes into the countersunk hole). The second is the long rear trunnion swell-neck rivet. The third is the triggerguard rivet. The one picture I don't have is the non-swell-neck front trunnion rivet. For that I have been using the McMaster-Carr P/N 97300A105 which is .272" head diameter, .112" head height, .496" OAL, and .153" shaft diameter. Hope this helps.

Nice information, I think that you posted this info before and of course I never copied it, then I couldn't find it. Now I have it. Thanks
