I have some extra rivets and was wondering if I could attach the lower rails with them. I know that spot welding would look alot better but I do not have the skills or access to the equiptment. I have seen others use screw and locking nuts. What do you guys think? Do you foresee any problems. I think by cutting the rivets down alittle the inside wouldnt be any thicker than a nut. Thanks for your help. Josh

drill holes threw the rec (not the rails)
and tack weld them in

I used tinners rivets to install the lower rails once. It didnt look all that great, but it did work. I put several rivets in each rail.

I think you will have a hard time getting regular AK rivets smashed due to access problems. Tinners rivets (from your local hardware store) are softer and will smash easier.

The rifle has held up fine so far, but I have only put a few hundred rounds through it. I use it for my beater.
