No and Yes.

You can make a trigger guard jig pretty easily out of 1/4" steel plate...

and just use a hammer?

Yes, a hammer and a punch to squeeze the TG rivets. Firebase shows how to do this in the link below...

Are you not seeing any pictures at all? Or is it you can't see his pic of him hammering the rivets? If the later, then here is Firebase's picture...



and here is another picture from another site of someone hammering the TG rivets.

No pics at all. Thanks for posting that pic. Does anyone have the entire post w/pics? I don't even see the placeholder for the pics ... weird!
