Default Need help on Browning T bolt 22

I'm in the process of finishing the gun. In order to process it I must take the gun apart. It has a front sight that has a shroud surrounding it that only the blade of the front sight sticks through the top. There is no pins to punch out. I called Browning and they couldn't tell me how it comes off. They gave me 2 numbers to call but neither one of them could help. Is there anyone that can tell me how to remove the front sight?

There should be grooves and slide it out of the groove if I remember correctly.

That is what I was thinking. I was asking for a pic to be sure. If it is, then it should be easy to remove.

I could be wrong, but I believe that was silver-soldered on. Removal is not recommended, nor is application of heat.

It definitely isn't silver soldered. If i hold the blade of the front sight it moves both pcs. back and forth. The shroud around the front sight is plastic

The plastic ramp looks like it was originally glued on then. Be VERY careful when removing it as there's not likely to be replacements available. Do you HAVE to remove it?

If I don't remove it when I place it in the bluing salts it will disappear. What part do you think is glued fast?
