Chain breaker tool

I used a chain breaker tool I have and it worked perfectly to install the rivet for the charging handle. Chain breaker tools break and install riveted master links on drive chains for modern high horse power motorcycles.
I used the install pin that flares the rivet which fit perfectly inside the charging handle. I put a .44 caliber heavy felt wad on the outside head of the rivet to act as a buffer to prevent marring the rivet head. I may have over done it a bit but the rivet is not coming out that's for sure.
Here and following are some pictures. I wish I could post more than one picture per post. This is what I used.

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

Matthew 25:1 thru 25:10 Be ready!

The written word sometimes like poetry is never really finished but merely abandoned.

I live alone in the middle of nowhere with two dogs and a cat, what do you think about that.

The wind blows, the rain falls, the flag snaps its bravery in the dark as two dogs boil for attention at my feet.

Of course it is a true story. You just couldn't make up something like that, no way.
