Removing remington iron sights...

Trying to get the front sight off my 7600. Only one screw is exposed. Is there a second screw under the sight blade? If so how do I get it off?

Drift the blade out with a brass or plastic punch and hammer, that should expose the other screw.

Do you know if it goes right to left, or left to right?

The sight comes out from left to right, as you look down the barrel at the front sight.

Re: Removing remington iron sights...

Ok I gave it a shot guys and I'm not having much luck. I removed the visable screw, sight won't budge. So there must be a screw under the sight blade. Tapped on the sight blade (left to right), even tapped it with a brass hammer. Blade doesn't slide at all. Any advice on how to get this off??

It takes a good whack to get it moving. Put a few drops of PB Blaster or liquid wrench on it and let it sit. If you have a vise, chuck it up in your vise with good padding around the jaws so you don't mar the barrel finish. I use a brass drift and dead blow hammer. You have to take a good swing, more than you think you need. It will move after breaking free.

So give it a good whack?? Don't have to worry about jarring anything with the barrel?

No, you won't hurt the barrel! But, if you can, support the side of the ramp when your beating on the sight. Remember, at the moment its only one 6-48 screw holding the ramp on.

I used to have a collection of sight pushers. Sometimes I wish I would have held onto them and a bunch of other tools, I would have left you borrow one.

Sight pushers huh?? I have some regular two jaw pullers. Wonder if I could adjust one of those to work?
