I have a DSA STG with the nice wood stock & forend DSA had in stock for about 5 minutes a few years ago. Beautiful rifle, I want to switch out the plastic cocking knob for a wood one. I've gone as far as removing the cocking knob slide from the rifle - basically stripped it down to the slide & the knob and that's as far as I can go. I understand there's a rivet holding the knob to the lever. How do I get this off - drill it out from the inside?

I presume once the rivet is off I yank off the plastic knob, replace it with wood and stake the new rivet in place?

As an alternative, where can I get the flip down type?
