Well, sort of but not really. MK319BS is an Emhart designation. I think it is used by other rivet manufacturers besides Emhart, but it's not used by Cherry.

I believe that the Cherry equivalent of the MK319BS is the MSC32. Those are Cherry N rivets.

Note that there is an important difference between the the Emhart and Cherry rivets: The Emhart Mx3xxBS rivets are not 3/32", they are nominally 7/64" in shank diameter, and require a #35 (or so) hole. I think that the Cherry MSx3 on the other hand will go into a #40 hole.

Thanks, Bob K.

I hope I am replying to Kraviator. Did You check with Van's before using those MK-319 rivets? I was thinking of doing the same thing as I am having a terrible time bucking the skins by myself.
