Okay, Finally ready to put that AK together. Minus the pistol grip of course :p

Anyways, i've looked at the bolt cutters for the assembly of the rivets and most only work for front rivets, everyones plans are not very good and it seems like a joke.

I'd like to get a nice little jig and stop messing around.

Can anyone recommend a jig that will work for all kinds of rivets. i plan an underfolder build in the future..

thanks
Eb

I have a bolt cutter conversion rivet crusher that worked great for front trunion. I used a punch and muffler gun rear. I'm on the central coast (Pismo Beach area) if you want to get together. Let me know.
