I guess we all have to start somewhere- now comes the real test- fire it.

Here's a couple I've built from kits and re-finished:

I'm not sure if it will make a difference.

What prevents them from backing out the right side?

The rivets aren't long enough to make heads. He just smashed them flat.

yea, i actually had a post asking about this. the rivets in this rivet kit were a little too short to for heads. they arn't going anywhere though since they are smashed tight into the trunion. also they catch the left side of the receiver for 1.0 mm.

That's one of the nice things about using rivets, they expand inside the trunnion when they are squeezed and become very tight.

Stevensville is about 30 miles south of Missoula in the Bitterroot Valley along hwy 93. It's about 15 miles north of Hamilton.
I've only been to Great Falls twice. Last time I was there was about 10 years ago.
