My rivet gun began spewing air out of the hole underneath the trigger? The instructions for dismantling it are pretty bad! Any ideas? Picture is attached.

Ed, my riveter is very similar to your model. On mine, that is the air exhaust hole when you pull the trigger. It shouldn't need to be dismantled. If it's continually leaking air from this port, other than when you pull the trigger, that may be a problem.

Yes, my riveter is continually leaking air from the hole. I called Zenith and Travis said he doesn't have any ideas on what is wrong, so they are sending a replacement today.
