If I have a new carbine with tight upper to lower fit, I place the bottom of the pistol grip on my workbench and press down on top of the rear of the carry handle to get the rear take down pin to go in. A little dab of lightweight grease on the rear take down pin helps. I push down on top of the carry handle and use a delrin pin to push out the take down pin for disassembly.
I would never pound on anything with a hammer to get the rear take down pin to go in.
