I traded for an AK74 and recently noticed it has 1 loose rivit that I can access through the mag well. Is there an easy fix for this and if not could someone loan me the bolt cutter blade attachment? Thanks.

First pic is crap but just wanted to show what rivet it is.


Here's a pick of the other side of the rivet. it's hard to see because it's pretty flush with the front trunnion.


This is a Bulgarian 74 with a triangle sidefolder if it makes a difference.

The other rivet in the first photo looks malformed also. You'd need to pull the barrel to fix that one.

Where are you located? Maybe you could join up with a build party or someone with tools. If you can't find help here, you might try a gunsmith.

You can make your own boltcutter rivet squeezer then sell it after you get your use out of it.
