First off who built it? if it has an Inland side plate on it then it was probably an IMA gun and they used drive screws so you can just grab them with a set of pliers and unscrew them but if they are in fact rivets then use the method as described above just use the right sized drill bit :tongue:Need to remove dummy right side plate from a 1919. Will be replacing with a semi plate from Halo. What is best way to remove the rivets? What size drill bit should be used for the new rivets.? The rivets are a set from Sarco.
'Drift punch', not pin. Different animals with different uses.It's an Israeli kit put together by a gunsmith. I understand grinding the rivet heads or center drilling them but do you mean drift pinning the rivets thru the MG body once the right side plate is removed?
