Hi.

I need to drill out a rivet to reverse a target's mount. The target switch in question is a common WMS part. Its main "stack" is held together with two brass rivets. My plan is to drill out these rivets, flip the mount to the opposite side, and then install two fresh rivets using a press. I would just buy a new target but I can't find one from any of the common sources.
I would also like to swap out the stock opaque target blades for transparent ones, so that would have me drilling out (and replacing) no fewer than fourteen rivets. I will drill out the "stack" rivets rather than attempt to drill only the target face rivet. Target switch rivets appear to be brass.

Below is a link to a rivet sold by Marco. It has many part numbers associated with it, but no mention of "targets."

Thanks for reading my post.

I think 1/8 is the right diameter. Measure the length and add 1/16 so you have enough material to squeeze in the rivet press
