I have a Enfield question. My Enfield has Mk2 flip up sights and I'm wonder how to take them off without messing anything up because it had dried grease/gunk cake in it. Any one know?

This was a first firearm that I bought I worked all summer to get it. It is a p17 eddystone. It was either the this or an SKS I am glad I got the Enfield.

The pin at the top of the sight or the one on the other side of the screw at the bottom?

The screw won't turn, is it supposed to do that?

It`s not a screw, it`s a pin, I know it has a screwdriver slot but it`s not a screw, it`s a pin, I know because I had to pull mine out to put this on............

Oh wow that makes sense! Wow thank you! I tried to unscrew it but it'd move just a bit but not turn. I'll do that when I get home
