How hard is it to replace the magazine catch lever in front of the trigger guard?  Thanks!

use a slave pin made from a nail or dowel to help hold things together as you slide the rivet in place.

then it's a simple matter of peining the heads of the rivet over equally.

Thanks Campy.

But are you descrbing getting it in?  If so, is getting it out the same routine?  

And also, certain words in there I have no idea what the mean.  They are in red.  Cold you explain them.

I am not exactly up to date with a lot of AK-build terms or other building terms in general.

Oh ok.  Thanks.

So if I will have to partially destroy the pivot pin / rivet that holds it in place, I will need to get a new one from K-VAR?
