Top strap rivet

Can someone tell me the size of the rivet that goes thru the X pattern top bow straps in a 1911 top? Thanks, Art

The heads are 3/8" and shaft is 1/2". I think I found mine at a local Tandy Leather store. Im not sure what they are called, but the double ended rivits are set with just a hammer and backing block. It is a two person job.
