Browning 1919a4 Rivets 1917a1 Rivets BMG Rivets M2 Rivets M3 Rivets FN30 Rivets

Browning Machine Gun Rivets: 1917a1, 1919a4, M2, M3, FN30, Colt Commercial (1928). Rivet tools, Countersinks and Drill bits For Sale:

New Site Under Construction: Your Source for Rivets and Tooling for Browning Machine Guns . I should have a clean Domain name soon.

I have 60 deg. rivets for the Browning 1917a1 & 1919a4: $25.00

99925


These are the current rivets for the 1917a1 and 1919a4. In the latest production run I was able to incorporate an additional improvement. The large Trunnion rivet now has a small, 60 degree head modeled closely after those used during the original production of the weapons. The rivets of some "Mil-spec." sets often come up short due to de-mil damage, so additional length has been added to some of my rivets to compensate for this. I don't want you running out of rivet before you run out of hole.

Note: The round head, forward Top plate rivet is no longer included.


The Forward cartridge stop retains the 0.20" shank (rather than the 0.185" of the earlier version) adopted about two years ago.

1) Forward Top plate rivet, #7 (Flat head rivet only, the round head rivet is no longer included)
2) Rear Top plate rivet, #7 (3)
3) Forward Cartridge stop, now with 0.200 shank (1)
4) Rear Cartridge stop rivet, #7 (1)
5) Large Trunion rivets, 11/32" (2)
6) Bottom plate and Pintle pad rivets, 3/16" (22)
7) Long Pintle pad rivet, 3/16" (1)

I also now have Colt 1928 Rivets and Tooling (Photo not available). $25.00. Set includes:

1) Forward Top plate rivet, #7 (Flat head rivet only, the round head rivet is no longer included)
2) Rear Top plate rivets, #7 (3)
3) Forward Cartridge stop (1)
4) Rear Cartridge stop rivet, #7 (1)
5) Large Trunnion Rivets, 11/32" (2)
6) Pintle pad rivets, 3/16" (5)
7) Long Pintle pad rivet, 3/16" (1)
Bottom plate rivets, 1/8" (a bunch)

Most of these are the same as in the 1917a1/1919 rivet kits. Differences: The forward Top plate rivet has a round head so it can be made to match the original. For the Bottom plate I have 1/8" x 1/2" round head rivets. These have enough material to duplicate the heads of the original rivets. $25.00.

I also have rivet setting tools with a smaller concave to form a proper head on the 1/8" diameter rivets. Pricing is the same as the other setting tools: $12.00 for the 3-1/2" tool, and $13.00 for the 1-1/2" tool. The 1-1/2" tool is also available with the Hydraulic setting fixture.


Countersinks and bits:

99364


3/16 Cobalt 135 deg split point bit used for the small rivet holes.
#7 Cobalt 135 deg split point bit for the Top Plate and rear cartridge stop rivet holes.
11/32 Cobalt 135 deg split point drill bit used for drilling the large, trunion rivet holes.
No. 5, Cobalt, 60 deg. and 90 deg. combined drill and countersink.

I have 9/16 and 5/8 HSS, 118 degree, 1/2 in shank, Silver and Deming drills. 4140 steel is tough on HSS, but if you're just enlarging a 9/16th hole, or the Cobalt 11/32 is used first to drill a pilot hole, this should get you done (with a little oil and patience). My current stock is U.S. made.

and rivet setting tools:

99365


I have 3 1/2" and 1 1/8" straight .401 shank rivet setting tools. With between 1/8 and 5/32 of the rivet shank protruding, these will make a rivet head very similar to the factory rivets. Experiment first of course. These are high alloy, heat-treated steel. Though designed for rivet guns, a large hammer (BFH) works too. There is also a fixture (center) available for setting rivets with a hydraulic press. It requires an additional 1" sleeve that must be purchased separately (see burntcapital.sharepoint.com for more information).

99363


For more information please see: FN30 Rivets for sale

60 Degree M2/M3 Rivets:

99361

(Mil set shown)

I offer three different sets for the Browning M2/M3:

1) The Mil-spec.patterned set (shown) with round head, countersunk rivets to attach the Trunnion and Top plate, and flat head rivets for the Bottom plate. This set most closely emulates that used in factory built weapons: $40.00
2) The round head Trunnion set with enough of the round head, countersunk rivets to attach the Trunnion, and flat head rivets for the Top plate and Bottom plate. This set will build a weapon that appears to be factory built on the outside: $40.00
3) The original, all flat head rivet set: $35.00

Extra rivets of all types are provided. For more information see: New .50 BMG Rivet Sets Now Available.

THE SETS INCLUDE:

1917/1919 BHPB and Cam rivets:

I've been asked for these in the past, but never offered them because I thought demand would be too small. Finally an opportunity presented itself that allowed me to split a production run. I now have them available for those of you building a 1917, or wanting to replace the BHPB or Cams. These were made using original 1919 drawings (thank you Rollin and Sam), but a little extra length has been added for the same reason as above. You need four of each, I give you six.

Price: $10.00 (Sorry, hassle factor)

For order information, see above.

What happened to the MG42 project?
All the pieces are in place. I should have samples to ATFE in the next few weeks (knock on wood). Price is coming in higher than I had hoped, but with cut Housings going for $1200.00+, I'll still be a bargin.

MSG,
I sent a USPS MO last week for 3 sets of rivets & was wondering did you get it yet? Hope you had a Merry Christmas

I found the three rivet sets in my mailbox today, excellant packing, excellant products. The best advertisements are happy customers & I am a new one for you. The rivets fit every part as an original would, they are priced well and I see why people who are building 1919 kits recommend them so highly.

Update. The short rivet setting tools finally arrived, so those orders have now been shipped. Orders for: Alan B., Joe T., Scott H., and Albert A. have been shipped, and should be in hand soon.

Thanks for the plug. I really try to provide high quality stuff at a reasonable price. I'm as cheap as the next guy. I should have the M2/M3 rivet sets and 1917/1919 BHPB and cam rivets available in early January.

Quality products at a fair price. NOT cheap products for a cheap price.

I'm just back from nine days on the road (my other job), and finally had a chance to catch up. Several orders didn't get turned around as quickly as I like, but there shouldn't be any major distractions for a while. I hope to have photos and pricing of the M2/M3 rivets, and 1917/1919 cam and BHPB rivets, posted in the next couple days.

My supplier has had them on backorder the last several times I've restocked, so I don't have them right now. The ORF rivet set has the wrong size Top plate and Rear cartridge stop rivets (3/16" vs. #7), and no Forward cartridge stop. You can buy my BFH-spec. rivet set for less than you'll pay for those. You can get rivets and a bit set at the same time. I'll probably have 60 degree countersinks in a month or so. I don't sell a lot of them anymore.
