I'm trying to remove the rear sight on my mosin M91/30 but I'm having problems getting the sight to come off. I have knocked the two pins out of the side and unscrewed the screw on top, but I still can't get sight to come off... Any suggestions?

I know it's supposed to come off like this:

Many were silver soldered in place. You may need a torch to heat it up and tap it with a brass hammer.

Well, unless there is some damage to the rails or somewhere else I'm not sure why you'd want to take it off in the first place. I've never had the inclination to take one off, but there may be some dried cosmoline in there not allowing it to move easily, or the base itself my be silver soldered into place. Either way you should be able to heat it with a propane torch to loosen it up. Just use care and don't overheat the metal.

If you're not using it already - try with a press

Thanks for the replies. I'll have to try heating it to see if it will come off. Honestly, I'm removing it so that I can mount a long eye relief scope there with scope rings. I really don't want to have to tinker with drilling holes in the bolt to use a bent bolt.

Many people are doing that. Supposed to work real well using the Burris metal rings.

You must intend to mount the .22 rings on the barrel dovetail. I too have read a number of posts about that. Seems to work fine if you get them tight enough. Notching the dovetail or installing a cap screw to act as a stop prevents the mounts from walking forward under recoil. I saw one setup that used 3 rings for extra holding power.
