Rivet gun recommendation

My wife's old horse trailer has aluminum rivets holding some trim on. Some need replacing and I always need more tools. What is a good brand to buy?

I've done a lot with just a basic Craftsman one.

Re: Rivet gun recommendation

No offence to any one's previous suggestions, but I bought and used this one from Harbor Freight https://www.harborfreight.com/swivel...ter-40690.html practically every day, Sometimes pulling rivets it was never designed to pull and it still worked just fine. This was while I worked Aircraft Maintenance for Fedex. It will surely do whatever your project is.

Ideas are like children: there are none so wonderful as your own.

Re: Rivet gun recommendation

I'm with the last post, that one from Harbor Freight, for the money is good choice, but even if you buy a different brand, I would get the one with a rotating head.
