The air gun isn't the "cheapest" if you don't have an air compressor and line to go with it.

I use an electric gun myself, really strong, will do 6mm (1/4") rivets if required.

I use the next size up little screw in hex nose piece (don't know what you call them) that you are supposed to change for different sized rivets, then the mandrels don't get stuck.

We use those M12 riveters in a production environment at work. They are quite durable and the guys love the ease of use compared to running air hoses to a pneumatic riveter. We use them for the little 1/8 and 3/16 rivets, they don't do as well on 1/4" stainless ones.
