Oh I know. Lol
But hey, it’s not meant to be a pretty safe queen.
I mean I’m building it from a $200 IO Blem parts kit...

I can't remember how many I drilled out and redid when I was building.

Long rear rivets are the worst. The only ones I’ve ever been proud of I shaped by hand with a tool i made from an old piece of sucker rod.

Drill them out and try again.

This!   I’ve been using the flats I bent to work through the rear rivets.  I figured at this point someone would have a “perfect every time” solution.  These are off the AK-builder jig. They are getting better but still not there. I’ve thought about heating them red hot before smooshing to see if that helps but I don’t think it will get the desired results in the internal expansion.
