Rivnut tool

Post by stark311 » Sun Aug 04, 2013 6:09 pm

I found a rivnut installation tool on Amazon that I like, but the smallest nut it will install is M5. Anybody know if my 710M has any M4 nuts?

pcolette has had experience with rivnuts. I'd pm him if you don't get any bites here.

I don't recall any stock M4 rivnut locations. I've installed a few for some mods I did but it's unlikely you'll need them.

My tool didn't come with the M4 parts but I was able to order them. I think both Astro Pneumatic and Marson have extra sizes available for their tools.

What I used. Works great for this situation. It came with m4 and m5 but I have not replaced any of that size.
