With the barrel out alot of people use modified bolt cutters
to squish the rivets. There is also a popular rivet squeezer,
the "plinker" type.

I guess I need more info. How are you rebuilding it.
And how did you do it before?

If the barrel is not removed you will need to do it.
You need to get inside the truninon where the barrel
goes to crush the rivets. You will crush them and then
press the barrel back. Check http://gunsgutsandgod.com/
for a tutorial.
