10/22 sight removal

  1. OK here's the question can you remove both the front sight and the little band that holds it?

    Is the sight a dovetail mount?

  3. Yeah I think you can tap the sight out left or right (though I heard you are only supposed to go 1 way or the other) but the band the dove tail is on is the main part we want to yank.

    I looked at mine and the band is machined into the barrel so unless you leathe it out, no. You're likely better off with a diffrent barel if you want it gone.
