I just bought a Hunter 220 and mounted a scope, and would like to remove the sights. The rear sight has an elevation adjustment screw/post that is mounted in the rear of the barrel block (at the loading breach) which sticks up about 3/4". It has a hex head in the top of the post, but no amount of coercion or cajoling will remove the post! (swear words haven't helped either) I'm afraid I'm going to strip out that hex head.
Has anyone had any success with removing this post? What was your method?
It has loktite on the threads so a little heat will work wonders to get it loose, if that fails a pair of vice grips at the very base of the screw always works.
