They were normally silver soldered. Get a gun smith. Why remove the rear sight from the receiver? does it have another?

I'm sorry didn't explain enough. basically some idiot tried to solder ether a rear site or a scope mount on the gun and it didn't work but there is a big blob of solder on the barrel. it doesn't affect performance it just makes the gun look ugly

Solder is not that hard. Grab your wifes or GF emery board and take it off. You may need a few.

Use some bare fine stranded copper wire like lamp cord and a soldering iron or gun. Lay the wire on the solder and heat. The wire will pull up the solder as it melts. You may need a little flux.

Or just heat it and wipe the solder off with a rag.
