Anyone replaced the front sight on a M95?  I need to remove the entire base in order to install a barrel band sling swivel stud.  It looks like it is soldered on, and a pin holds the bead in the slot.   Any advice would be welcome.

Mule,

If you will drift the front sight from the ramp you will find one of two things:  a screw head or nothing.  The nothing will tell you that it was "silver soldered" to the barrel; a very common practice.

The base of this sight is not a dovetail.  There's a slot down the length of the base that the blade slides into.  Its secured with a pin through the base above the slot.  I guess it would have to be soldered.  If I heat it with a torch, it should fall off right?
