How do you remove rivets?

I was looking at the M4 GP slip-on and wondering if anyone knows how to take off the M4 logo piece. It looks riveted on. How do you drill out the rivets?

stick a #30 drill bit in the center of the head and drill down untill just past the head. It should just pop off. If not, use a #20 bit and do the same.

IF you take if off, you are gonna want to fill the holes with JB weld, or put some blank rivets in the holes, the small holes will drive you crazy, you will definately hear them missing.
