Removing rear dovetail sight from a topper barrel
Anyone know an easier way to remove a rear dovetail sight. I tried to install a H&R scope base but the rear sight obstructs it by a 1/2 an inch. I have tried tapping it out with a square metal punch but only get it to move a few hundredths of an inch and don't want to wreck it. I could cut the base but it will only leave about 1/4 " to the first scope ring notch.
