Is there a standard for the shape of the machine head side of a rivet set tool?

Is there a standard for the shape of the machine head side of a rivet set tool?

(OP)
I'm designing a rivet set tool to drive MS20470A4 rivets to back up the machine head in an area with limited space. If I had more space I would purchase an SM201-4704 rivet set or similar, but instead I want to just machine a recess to fit the shape of the rivet in my tool. I have designed the recess based on the shape of the rivet head, but I was wondering if there is a standard with defined dimensions?

Thanks,

RE: Is there a standard for the shape of the machine head side of a rivet set tool?

I have a vague understanding of Your need. Please provide better details.

NOTE. Is this rivet set intended for a 'unique-design' rivet gun nose piece [head shape embedded into the nose end cup, for conventional gun-on-head bucking... bucked-tail set by bucking-bar]; or installation onto a bucking-bar [for reverse gun-on-tail bucking... head restrained by set embedded onto bucking-bar with head-shape cup]?
