    Screw built Vs Rivet Built

    I was scrolling through tickbitesupply looking for some surplus parts and I came across a Screw build kit. Has anyone seen or used these? Are they reliable or just stick to the old Rivet way of doing a build? Any thoughts?

    If wanna screw up your parts and hack it together while other people make fun of it then have at it.

    There was/is a reason why countys use rivets.

    Fortunately screwed builds are getting less common but if I find one, I immediately mentally deduct $400 off the asking price... because that's what it's going to cost at minimum to have someone competent rebuild it properly.

    There's a reason why factories the world over use rivets. It's why you see some of the earliest AKs ever made still kicking it in African conflicts.

    Yeah, that's what my thoughts are. I had never seen such shit, I really wasn't even sure what I was looking at.
