Flush Riveting

Could anyone tell me if I need a special retaining spring on a 3X gun to accommodate a flush rivet set? I can't see how it works with a regular beehive spring.

Um, in desperation, I tried something similar from Princesse Auto (local store) and lets just say it's a good job it wasn't pointing towards anything valuable...

A lesson learnt
