I was looking to buy a used Browning Buckmark 22, only the front sight came off as I was test firing it. The screw that holds the sight on broke and part is still in the hole.
Can a gunsmith extract this broken screw and remount the sight. Are there any other sight options? Any I idea on costs to repair?
A good gunsmith should be able to use an easy-out type tool and remove the broken screw\bolt. He can then redress the threads and re-install the sight. This is something unless you are very mechanical I would leave to a professional

You use your front sight? Maybe I should start doing this..... If it is way down in there then I would have a smith do it. But if it were clost to the top I would do it myself. It is not that hard. worse comes to worse you drill it and tap it bigger and call it a day.
