Just completed a AMD-65 build using 3/16" rivets. I have a source incredibly reasonable. The heads are a bit larger in diameter than standard AK style but still look good. Anyone out there have a build from 3/16" rivets?

ref. The rear tang/trunion rivets are exactly the length needed. The trigger gd. rivets required a small amount of trimming. The front trunion rivets same-same.

I kinda like the 3/16" idea as the rivets are a bit larger in diameter don't know if this matters from standpoint of strength but I sleep a bit better. BTW. Thanks go out to SOCANDYMAN for his post on rear trunion/tang riveting.

I only use 3/16 on rear trunion.

5/32 still work best for everything else... IMHO
