    What rivet set for Khyber Sidefolder?

    What rivet set do I need to use for my khyber pass sidefolder build? I have a WBP AKM kit childers receiver and a Tula sidefolder trunnion, AK underfolder rivets or 74 sidefolder rivets? Also are Akbuilder rivets any different sized than other rivets I’ve seen on his site he mentions a few things that make it seem they might only fit stuff he sells like side optic rails.

    So I would assume I need to bore the holes on my childers receiver as well? (it has all the holes predrilled)

    This guy has the rivets you need. Just post in the thread that you would like a set and then PM him and tell him you need a set of 7.62 Khyber rivets.

    His rivets looks nice! However why him over akbuilder? (I'll probably go with him instead of Akbuilder just curious)

    Either set would be fine, but the guy I posted has rivets that are more "accurate" than the AK Builder set (two "flat head" rear trunnion rivets). Plus his come with a center support rivet if you need one of those. Not taking anything away from AK Builder, though. They make great stuff and I appreciate their business that caters to folks like us.

    You can't go wrong with either set, really.
