Rivets, rivet guns.. need answers

So, I know the difference between pop and solid(buck) rivets. But what I do not know is if they could somehow use the same gun? My dad was able to get me an Astro PR14 air riveter. I had sent him a picture of the kit VTS has on the website and a link from northern tool of a buck riveting gun. He said Amazon had the picture of the same kit from northern tool but what was shipped was obviously the Astro PR14.. now I know they look totally different. But is there anyway I could buck rivet with this gun, or do I need to go ahead and get another gun?? Thanks for your help. Click image for larger version

No way to buck rivet with that, pop rivets only. Bucks need a gun like an air hammer.

Ok thanks for the quick response. I figured it couldn't work. Was making sure before I bought one.

Thanks again
