Was hoping someone could tell me what the deal is with these front trunnion rivets? The left appears to be unpressed while the right has no rivet at all.

Comparing it to my Galil in memory (Though my memory may be fuzzy.), I believe they used an extended rivet in order to omit the steps needed to machine a device into the trunnion that will successfully lock the bolt in the closed position until the round is fired.
