You just might need those sights one day. Rifle looks nice , have a good time with it. Maybe a few tree rats or wabbits for dinner??

It won't be cheap to do that but it can be done. A trigger and a barrel upgrade will go a long wa toward making your rifle a great shooter. But even as a stock rifle it will shoot well. It's hard to go wrong with a 10/22. My personal choice for an all-around beater would be different but that's still an excellent choice.
There are tons of aftermarket parts for a 10-22. It's the best reason to have a few of them

I wouldn't bother removing the sight. Maybe get another bbl if you just don't like it but I'm more the type that will use mounts/rings that allow me to look under the glass and use them from time to time. They do come in handy and not being a slave to the glass is a plus sometimes.

I removed it to put on some fibre optic, fire sights.

I use a tool called a sight pusher.

Seriously? It is sort of U shaped. On one end it has 2 heavy prongs spaced a little more than a half inch apart. These will sit against your sight ramp. You have 1 other single prong that is attached to a screw handle that goes against the dovetail sight from the opposite side. You turn the handle to tighten and it slowly pushes the sight out of the dovetail as as you go. I use it to install or remove dovetail sights. I bought it at Midway. It is made by Williams and think it is called a Williams Sight Pusher. I think they are about $50. It works great for me. I bought it after my punch slipped and I knocked the bead off of a model 94.

Of course it also works great for adjusting windage instead of beating on it with a hammer and punch, which I was trying to do in the first place.
