I have a pre-ban "56S" AK-47 with a very stubborn front sight. I do have the proper sight adjusting tool, but the sucker will not move. It's not rusted, and just for grins, I even applied a little penetrating oil - still no budge, no matter how much force I apply to the tool. There doesn't appear to be a locking screw anywhere...what am I missing???

c3... I might try that, but wouldn't that just expand everything? both the male and female parts? Just how much force is "normal" for these things?
Aleksi... I have tried that with a drift and a hammer. Didn't budge. I hate hammering on things without proper jigs or fixtures...
