How to remove the rear sight on a Gew 88
I need to replace the site on one of my Gew 88s. I have one hat has been de-soldered form a barrel tube. Now I Just need to remove the folding part of the sight and put it on the one that is soldered in place. My question is this, is the pin that holds the folding sight a friction fit pin that needs to be driven out or a threaded screw that somehow needs to be rotated out? In either case are there suggestions for removing this pivot pin without damaging it?
