    I accidently dropped my dad's old rifle on a concrete floor damaging the
    butt-plate and breaking the top off the front sight; what's involved in removing & replacing the front sight?

    You should be able to remove the original with a small punch and a light hammer. The sight slides into a dovetail groove, simply tap it out to one side. But if you dont have a new front sight, I dont know how your gonna fix it..

    You are taking a chance on no one looking at a 5 year old thread, it would be to your advantage to start a new thread if you have a question. With that being said, I will offer this to you,http://gunpartscorp.com/ I have not checked it but whenever I need any kind of gun part, I check this place first.
