http://burntcapital.sharepoint.com/Pages/default.aspx for rivets.

I built my own bucking stuff. Have seen them offered, but not for quite a while.
VERY easy to make if you own a mill.

I got mine from burnt capital.com ,
Good to see you Karl haven't seen you post lately, I was going to send you a p.m. on this ,thanks for chipping in. Michael @burnt capital gave me a lead. A guy on tos goes by machineman makes them for the 1919 and used to make them for the M2, they were listed for $35. I couldn't make one for that if you count time. Anyway I sent him a E-mail and will see what comes of it.

I haven't used their M3 rivets but the 1919 rivets I got from Burnt Capitol were excellent. Good folks to deal with.

I drew it up for you. Just a concept - adjust size to suit.

1. get a steel block 2"x4"x0.5"
2. drill a 1/4" slot 3/4" long. exact dimension not critical
3. saw diagonal 1/4" from each corner, sand smooth.

I think it works WAY better to do just a few rivets at a time.

Thanks' for the input guy's. I found them motox8665@sbcglobal.net is still making them $100 shipped. It will save me some time. I ordered The premium modern semi M3HB kit from Christos ,KMP semi RSP trigger and sear ,rivet's from burntcapital.com and a barrel of GB.
So when everything gets here I'll get the BFH out and go to work. I'm thinking of getting a tank and doing the Parkerizing myself , it will cost me about the same as sending it out. If anyone has input on that let me know.
Greg

Ok been a while, Finely got some more parts from Christos, not all but most. Did my mock up with internals installed. Everything cycles without any binding or hang up's.
Ready to drill holes and rivet together. If anyone has any advise please feel free to comment .
Heres some pictures of it.
