I bought my riveter from Harbor Freight. I sharpened a drill bit to the shape of a crowned rivet. I never looked back, it never let me down. Every rivet went in perfect. At the time I think my gun was the bigger one. I would use it again. It also came with extra parts which I never had to use.

I got the one from Zenith with the tips at the Open House and then picked up the 1/4 inch from Harbor Freight.  I have the A4 head on one and the A5 head on the other.

Your right Tom, after looking that zenith will modify the tips for $9 each it will be easier to just buy thru them or aircraft spruce

John, I just went ahead and bought the rivet puller from Aircraft Spruce that has the proper concaved heads for the Zenith rivets. Cost a little more maybe but saved some searching for the pulling heads. Just sayin..Tom
