Default Side Rail Rivets with Toth Tool

I'm wondering if anyone has installed a side rail on an already assembled gun with the bolt cutter jaw rivet setter from toth tool? Just want to make sure there's enough room to get the jaws in there since the rear trunnion is already in. Thanks in advance!

There's enough for the forward most rivet. I've never tried it on the middle rivet. If its a 74 you also have enough room on the rear most as well.

It's a romanian draco in 7.62x39 without the underfolder trunnion if that makes a difference.

It works, but be careful with the middle rivet the jaws will leave a press mark on the rail. You will also have to file down the rivet heads on the out side.
