Default Magazine catch pivot location??

Greetings all, I am working on my first build, A virgin Cugir M+M AKM kit on an AoA polish blank. With the help of the search function, I have been able to answer all my questions & everything has gone together quite nicely.

The only thing that I am stumped on is, with the virgin trigger guard, where do I drill the hole for the mag catch rivet? The rivet that the mag catch pivot's on. I hope that makes sense.

If there is a drawing/print for this measurement that I missed, please direct me toward it.

Thanks in advance
Rob

It is too faint to read it, I have 2 virgin RPK kits to build & they have to be drilled also. How can you darken up the image so that it is readable?

No idea how to darken it, but the print reads 16.5mm down & 7mm over with a 5mm hole
