Default Bump rivet OD and other measurements.

Can someone take a measurement for me? It needs to be precise. Dial calipers at least. I need the outer diameter of a bump rivet. It would also be helpful to know how far into the circle that the chamfered edge goes before it stops. Also, the height of the rivet above the receiver. Any estimate on the angle of the outer chamfer would be great too. Thanks in advance.

I chopped and demilled an iz240 for the trunion, barrel, and bolt carrier group to use for an ak105 build. My stamp is back so it's time to get started. Unfortunately that rivet was long gone before I realized that they weren't available. I'm looking into fabricating one but have nothing to go off of at this point.

You can get the rivets. A full russian set is like 45 bucks including the bump rivet
