Yea, I completely understand now.


Rivet'd the bullet guide in yesterday. Ran into a few problem. Mainly the rivet I ordered from ak-builder wasn't right, the diameter was too big. No worries though. Took a shouldered rivet I had left over since I ordered a while rivet set just to do the trigger guard. Ran it on the belt sander while spining it with my drill to match the profile of the ak-builder rivet. Worked out perfect. I will post pictures tonight

Might I suggest Duplicolor Semi Gloss Black Engine Enamel. If you can bake it it comes out really nice and with some oil you can smooth it out

Looks good.....I just leave the top of rivet round and it flattens fine....a little extra meat is good in my book....penny nails work too....cut down of course.

Looks awesome!

I can't wait to start my galil reweld. I just need to find a good front stub. Mine is cut right through the threads on the barrel.
