Default Brass Stacker Mount

OK, I ordered one of these for my MN M44. The instructions said that one of the pins holding the rear site on may be soldered in. If you need excessive force to punch the pin out, chances are it is. So heat is required. Well mine seems to be soldered in.

What problems can I cause by putting a torch to this thing? It has to come out of the stock so I don't set the stock on fire, but other than that, how can I avoid screwing up? Do I need to move the flame to both sides of the pin or will just heating up the entire rear part of the site loosen the solder enough?

Anyone have any experience with this? What will it take...or should I just pay someone to do it?

If its anything like the radiators at work that have random metal bits stuck to them, it should take a whole lot to heat up. You should be just fine putting a flame in the middle of the pin.

It SHOULD take a whole lot of heat? For some reason that struck me odd. Did you mean it Should NOT take a whole lot of heat?

Sorry about that, it should of read "shouldn't take a whole lot", my IPod likes to correct spelling to what ever it sees fit at times.

Got my Brass Stacker mounted. I did use some heat, but I'm not sure it helped. One sharp, true hit with the hammer and I finally got that rear pin to budge. The rest was easy. I hope to take it to the range this weekend and zero it in.
