hi all,

how difficult is it to remove a riveted optics rail and install a new one? this is on a stamped receiver.

reason i ask is i would like to switch from a somewhat out of spec romainian one to a russian style one.

i don't have any home building equipment in general. i am just curious as to the level of effort and tools required.

many thanks

seth

Seth - you probably don't want to use a hand drill to remove rivets. ESPECIALLY the rear rivet - it also goes thru the rear trunion. Beside a drill press? You're going to need to re-rivet... implying a press & jigs.

You might want to consider sending the rifle out for this one - or working with a board member in your area to gain access to the needed tools.
