I want to do a rivet build. Does any one know of a site that has detailed instructions on doing this? Like how to put them in the trunnion and press the barrel in.

I am thinking of building a gun does not come with the front trunnion. It is a 23mm barrel, can I just buy a 23mm trunnion and press it on in? Thanks in advance.

You can do that, but you will have to set proper headspace with a virgin barrel. Once you set the headspace drill a notch for the barrel pin and press it in.

Well the barrel comes with the kit, but not the trunnion. How hard is it to set up headspace?

Its not really that hard but it can be tedious. You will need a Go gauge and a No-Go guage. Press the barrel in a little at a time until the bolt will lock on the Go guage and not lock on the No-Go. Once you have these conditions set, drill your notch for the barrel pin. Remember, go slow or you will have to push the barrel back out of the trunion and start over.
