    I know it would be cheating but damn it would be easy to take it by the welding shop and have it spot welded! Hearsy?

    Driving it over to a welder's shop is a lot more work than installing two rivets.

    If you don't have a press, you can buck these rivets very well with a hammer, a punch, and the anvil portion of your bench vise.

    Re: My SLR-95 tang install (pic heavy)

    I was able to purchase through ACE ltd. a receiver block for "milled" to which will apply a folding mechanism and than a stock. My understanding is that no modifications will be required. I have yet to receive my new toys and I'll let you know how I end up.

    Re: My SLR-95 tang install (pic heavy)

    I've got a lower tang inbound from CNC Warrior (much cheaper shipping than K-VAR!) and unfortunately no slot on my SLR-95. I will probably have to pick up a 1/4" file from Harbor Freight as there is one nearby. I am contemplating going the screw route vice the rivets because it would allow me to convert the rifle back to its original form if desired. Any thoughts?

    Cheers! M2

    I would suggest welding. The SA-93 steel is totally the hardest I've ever seen. I already have to weld up 2 holes for a scope I no longer like.

    What happened to the pics? I'm fixing to do this and this seems to be the best tutorial thread or there.

    Looks like Gunwolf hasn't been around in a long time.

    I might have saved them.I'll look later.

    I'd greatly appreciate it. I know I'm kicking up old dirt but really want to do this myself rather than take it somewhere.

    I did exactly this. A sharp file will make a difference. Just took some time, like a couple afternoons infront of TV for a few hours working it. The cut out you get is perfect for the tang. The grip covers the screws just fine. My only problem is fitting the stock. Its a pain in the butt "for me anyway.." The reward is worth it. I am converting it to a AR-M1 clone. Very much like the milled receiver.

    Designating yourself as a type A personality only means you talk too much.

    I used a carbide cutter on my Dremel to hog out most of the extra steel when I slotted my Sa93 receiver. Then I used a triangular file to square it up.

    Just watch the splinters the cutter makes. Had them embedded all over my hands for weeks.

    Helps a lot to have an example to study, if you can lay hands on a cut stub. Watch out for that lower back edge; it's the only part that shows when a tang is installed so you want to make it neat.

    I got lucky with mine as it's already cut out. I was hoping for the pics of installation. I just got the tang today but have been really busy and will hopefully have it done by the weekend. I just wanted to make sure I get it right but I'll figure it out.

    Do you have the rivets?

    I found the regular rivets I'd been using for trigger guards to be too short to buck properly in the lower tang.

    OTK is a proper head on both ends, but you can get away with just mashing them good under the pistol grip. Never shows.
