I can't tell exactly which rivet that is on my computer screen. Is that the rivet head that goes under the trigger?

Goes behind the disconnector, rear rivet for the trigger guard. Prevents trigger slap for disconnectors with tail. Useless for semi-auto disconnectors with shaved tails.

Take a look at the pic in this thread. That's what it looks like installed from the inside of the receiver.

The rear trigger guard rivet is suppose to have a flat head that is 3.4 mm thick (tall) inside the receiver.

It's suppose to contact the tail of a "full-auto" disconnector to prevent trigger slap. Semi-auto fire control group disconnectors are without the tail. So on a semi-auto disconnector, it serves no useful purpose other than to make the inside of the receiver "look" more authentic.

The short answer to your question is: "no".

No, it's not too bad. It's just like anything else once you get the hang of it. Oh, and having the correct tool really helps. I made a special tool to fit the head of the rivet.
