I have seen that many use screws and nuts to fasten new front swivels in place. Is is possible to get the orginal style rivets and go that route?

If so, where can they be sourced?

I attached mine by hand. I made an aluminum backer by plunging a ball endmill into a piece of scrap about 1/4" from the end, just enuf to keep the rivet from moving around, then attached the rearmost rivet first buy lightly peening the edged with my 1/8" punch. repeated the operation on the foremost last.
