I disassembled my first Romy kit today. The only thing I had problems with was getting the rivets off the trigger guard--the piece is so flimsy I didn't want to really crank down the vise on it. I ended up breaking the safety selector stop. Snapped it right in two.

1) is there someplace I can get a replacement stop or do I need a whole replacement trigger guard in order to get that part?

2) is there a better way to do this? I checked out Firebase's thread but I don't have a drill press so I'm winging it a little.

3) I haven't gotten the looooong rivets out of the rear trunion yet--how should that be tackled with no drill press?

Thanks for any advice.

The barrel pin was a piece of cake with the 12-ton HF press.

Scroll down the page -- they have the stop for $6.99.

Carefully. I grind down the rivets with a dremel bit. You need a dremel type tool for these builds. Harbor Freight usually has them on sale. After grinding flat you can drill and then punch them out.

3) I haven't gotten the looooong rivets out of the rear trunion yet--how should that be tackled with no drill press?

Slowly and carefully and from both sides. You could also get a small drill press. I'm sure you'll find hundreds of uses for it over the years.
