Hex nuts that fit 8-32 TG screws are just too big and require grinding edges which makes a butt ugly job. Someone has to know of some type of smaller fastener to use in replacement of them. No, not rivets, I would never use rivets on the TG either in a screw or rivet build.

Hi,

I used a piece of 1/8 " thick x 1 1/2" flat steel. i cut it so that it fit tight inside the reciever and located the trigger guard holes, then simply removed , drilled and tapped it for the 8-32 . work very well.

My first build I used nute and had to shave them down, what a pain.....

The first two guns I built were screw jobs. Both work great.

I got the screws, etc off gunco.net classifieds from a guy that goes by the screen name of fxrfxr or something like that.

He had the right nuts and bolts for the job- no trimming- they just fit right the first time.

Might want to look him up. He has a website but I can't remember the address.

Go to your ACE Hardware store and buy the little 4-40 nuts. Drill the center out for your 8-32 screws and then re-tap. Now you have little 8-32 nuts.

Easy as pie.

6/32 screws and nuts

I use 5 mm allen head screws from ACE. Also available are special small nuts which fit perfectly inside. This is the best and easiest solution I have found.

I second the idea (Son35) of tapping 4 holes in a small plate. I found it easier to install (once built).

I checked and found that the allen screws are actually 4mm x 10mm.

What about cap type allen head screws like the ones found on Japanese Motorcycle fairings? Sorry, I can't help much on the build, I'm a newbie myself getting ready to get started on my own 1st build. But anyway, those cap screw would look real nice I think. They wouldn't need any washer or anything to stay on.

Just a thought.
