Thanks 7.62 and Xebec!! I got em at the same time. It's freaking Christmas :) . Plinkers rivet jig should be coming soon as well as a whole crap load of rivets. Headed to Harbor Freight on Friday to go press shopping.
7.62 do you think you could email me some instuctions for your Trigger Rivet Jig? I'm a Polock remember, and a straight up beginner to boot. It looks simple enough to figue out but it will probably save me time and profanity.
On the Xebec jig I got the best combo of press plates I could think of allowing me to do barrel presses on the PSL, AMD63, AKM, AK74, Milled recievers, and RPK's. I didn't really see myself working on AK47s or AMD65s so I opted not to try to get a third plate for those. Now I really have to clear out my spare bedroom and start setting up shop. I still need to get a decent drill press and a workbench as well. Hmmmm need to order some of those AK posters to go up in there too for inspiration and motivation. Not that I really need those this is a hell of an addiction. :thankyou: PT

Just don't get too excited!!!! I was so excited with 7.62's jig that I hurried up and riveted on a trigger guard. Then I couldn't figure out why they bent over and were so ugly. I left off the trigger plate!!!!!!!!!!. I had to grind off the rivets and compose myself. The only instructions you need for the trigger jig is " DON"T LEAVE OFF THE PLATE!!!"

Cool thanks for the link, I thought I had seen that somewhere, I'm just a mix of real tired (12hr night shift) and excited that my home shop should be up and running ohhh about the time the AWB DIES :) . Damn wish I had a reciever to work on now, I could at least do everything but press the barrel in. LOL I still need to learn how to drill out rivets without destoying my bits.

Remember that the TG rivets don't have a formed head, they are mashed flat for FCG clearance, so you do not want to use too long of a rivet.

You only want around .150 or so of the rivet protruding into the inside of the receiver, after it goes through the TG, selector stop and the receiver.

Good to note 7.62, I should have some short rivets coming in this bunch, if not (I can't recall many details right now), I'll order them from KVAR, I might end up ordering a trigger guard set complete with rivets for me 20" 7.62 Saiga that I want to finish the conversion on. I think it will look much nicer that trying to reuse the old parts. and with it riveted back together it will look like a factory job :) .

PolishTaipan,can you give me the infoas to where to get these jigs and how much?...Much thanks.
Well, you might notice that one of the jig makers (Trigger rivet jig) is one of the posters in this thread, 7.62. You'd have to ask him if he's planning another run anytime soon. Same go's for the makers of the other jigs I mentioned, Xebec and Plinker. I don't have their emails here with me at work but maybe someone could post them or you could do a search here or on Akfiles.net. I'm not sure that any of them are planning to make more of their jigs, but there are people here that are making their own versions of the forementioned jigs. Pookie's website is also a wealth of info. I believe that the whole website is available for download in (16?) parts from this website. Is there a quick link to that guys? Its a huge file all together, so be warned if you're on dialup.......................PT
