I need to drill the the front and rear trunnion holes in my Ak-74 receiver. I'm not sure of the size. Thanks

That equates to approximately 11\64". If you search you'll find more detailed posts on the topic.
If you have the rivets you can use them as a reference.

Welcome to the forum
Thanks guys. I came across some info that stated the holes were 5/32. So I drilled all the holes with a 5/32 bit, all the rivets fit excepts the one longer rear trunnion rivet. So all holes need to be drilled with an 11/64 bit or just just holes in the rear trunnion using long rivets?
FWIW, I've always used a 5/32" bit. No problems so far.
