i have worked with iron sight for years you just need to know a few basics. either front or rear sifgt doesnt matter all are the same. always drive the sight from the left to the right to remove them and reinstall right to left. to keep from marring the sight some use a brass punch however i have had brass drifts mar steel. i use a solid pvc dowel or a hard wood dowel. if it is stiff it may break a wood dowel or two before it loosens. the sight removing tool mentioned earlier only works on front sights with a ramp if i know the one he is talking about. steer clear of heat. heat changes the tensil strenght of steel.have someone hold the rifle for you.
