Is a special tool needed to remove the NM front site unit from the flashhider's dovetail ?
Or can I tap it off with a small hammer & a brass drift ?
Yes, I have removed the screw.:D

I was making a simple task difficult...Next time I'll remove the site before I remove the F.H. from the rifle.
After wrapping the FH with a heavy cloth.I It put in the vice,and you're right...I lightly tapped it off with a ball peen hammer & a brass punch.
