Does anybody know of a tool or procedure to install the front sling swivel rivet? I would like to get the "factory-looking" swaged and rolled end. Punches and other such tools don't seem to do it.

Use a brake/clutch lining rivet tool. They are available through aviation tool supply outlets and are relatively inexpensive.

Thanks Russ. I was wondering the same thing. Mine just decided to wiggle free and I need to redo it.

Thanks, I checked some aircraft tool suppliers, and located several tools for around $20 that look like they will work perfectly.
