Default AK side rails

Anybody use the Chinese UTG side rails that use threaded hex bolts and nuts.
I would prefer a riveted side rail.
Any tips to convert these to rivets? source of rivets?

I've used rivets on those rails, just used the normal front trunion rivets and made a custom bucking plate to hold the rivets inside the rail.
We're not done yet, we're not going quietly. We'll win in the end.
