Is there a technique to get consistant seating and head shape from swell neck rivets . I have some sitting higher than others . no problems with the regular rivets.

sometimes it helps to countersink the reciever just a little bit so it pulls the reciever into the countersink in the trunion. especialyif it is an OOW

You really have to dimple the receiver when using swell neck rivets. It's a PITA IMO, and that's why I don't use swell rivets anymore. It doesn't make a tangible difference swell vs nonswell. Use what is easiest.

Watch what you say about that,

I agree with you 100%, but there seems to be a guy in here that "builds for a living", and let me know in Chat that if you are not using Swell neck's you are a P.O.S. who just wants to Hillbilly build crap to sell at a gunshow to other dumbass's that dont know any better.

Put the swell necks in last and use a center punch to mash down the receiver to fit the indentation in the trunnion.
