As I prepare to order my kit I am looking at options for pulling the rivets.  

Specifically, the Stanley PB2500 that uses Dewalt batteries.

Do any of you expert builders have any experience with these and are they recommended or not recommended and why???

Thanks in advance,

Thanks Dan!

Nose Pieces for any rivet gun are easily made.1/2 " or larger 135 deg bit, heat rivet nose piece if necessary. drill concave  until you can get no mark on rivet (drill deeper), no mark on test piece of skin (drill less or file). Polish with scotchbrite. Always good to keep non modified heads on hand as well.
