I folks I have a quick question for you. A rivet on my PSL looks like it is chipped, it is the center rivet on the front trunnion. Do you think this is of concern or just slopping riveting at the Cugir factory. Here is a picture of the suspect rivet

Wouldn't worry about it. If you have multiple rifles based on the AK platform and look closely at all the rivets, I have found a few where the rivets weren't seated properly or were deformed. My worst one is on the supposedly best of the best, an SGL21. I don't think they pay attention to detail when they build these rifles.
