    I want to remove the entire fron sight so i can slide the bayonet lug off, but is the front sight mount also soldered on?

    Don't think so...but it may be pinned or staked.

    **** i see now the bayonet lug and front sight are all one piece, one sleeve, thanks. But still i can only see the pin on the bayonet lg on one side and i can get the front sight pin out how should i get the bayonet lug pin out. If you look at the pic without the pin hle there's a very feint circle but i don't want to break anything. I'll post a link to the pics under this.
