don't want to get ahead of myself and create more work....just double checking. when building a triangle folder, my guess is that you rivet the front trunion to the receiver, and install the stock catch, pin and spring to the front once its riveted in....?
or am i wrong... don't want to rivet until I get the correct info. thanks.

Yep. There's a neat set of instruction that AK builder put out.

I saw that and I know I should have been able to deduce that the trunion was riveted but it didn't specifically say so I wanted to be sure. Thanks for the answer

If your going to park and paint the rifle wait to install the front catch assembly until after you are finished with the park and paint...

lol that was going to be my next question. can the assembly be put in place with the barrel in or is it better done with the barrel out of the trunion?

Makes no difference... I would wait until it's all done and painted..... Installing the spring is really not a big deal.

Takes a little finagling but once you figure out how it's supposed to sit it's pretty straight forward.

ok yea I was messing around with it a little bit this afternoon. I get the idea, but seems like a pain until you get the trick....I like the idea of a little hook on the end of an allen wrench.

Dental picks work great too.

I use a thin wire loop hooked around the "hook" on the spring. Pulling the wire forces the "hook" of the spring under the catch and allows it to snap up in place.. Then clip the wire...
