Is it a difficult process? I'm wanting to replace some Quick Draw targets and I don't have the slightest idea how to do it correctly. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Drill out the rivet from the back side with 1/8" drill bit. Save the washer. Replace the face and the rivet. Reinstall the back-up washer and clinch the rivet with a rollover punch and setting die.

And you dont need the die, just the $25 punch. I jam a dowel into the target to bend the target away from backer so I can easily drill and punch the new one.

If you want more of a quick fix (pardon the pun) - Marco Specialties sells target stickers that fit neatly on the target a look great. I used them on my Quick Draw and King of Diamonds and unless you have the glass off and look very closely, you cannot tell they are stickers.

if you want to send me the targets and the cost of return shipping, I would be willing to change the target faces for you. I have a rivet press

I have done them for others in the past like j_m_
send them with return postage. quick turn around
with the correct tool the hold better, but can be done with hand tools like others have posted.
just did 7 on my BaB 20 min start to finish
I just wish the repro pbr sells were not so white

what's weird is that one every joust that I've seen (or owned), the center "bulls-eye" targets were always broke, but the solid stand-up (the 'hunter 3' target) were unscathed.

I wonder if that slight lack of plastic (where the "bands" were painted) made that much of a difference that the targets broke.

Thanks for the suggestions and offers guys. I have a local friend who is letting me borrow theirs for a while

You know, I don't see why you could not use an old reloading press for setting rivets. I have a couple of these in my attic.

I may buy a set of the rivet setting dies & perhaps weld them onto an old set of junk reloading dies so it will mount in the press. Only trick would be getting them welded exactly centered top & bottom so they match up properly.
