They were normally silver soldered. Get a gun smith. Why remove the rear sight from the receiver? does it have another?
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
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.
what if she doesn't have one
Go to the drug store or super market.
Get a new GF!!!!!!!
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.

I was taught to respect my elders but they are getting harder to find.
Or just heat it and wipe the solder off with a rag.
Just walking on the edge of of my grave.
