    So I have this SIG 556 Pistol, it has this "blade" style front sight and I would like to replace with it a SIG Hooded front sight. My question is, how do I take off the blade front sight? It seems to unscrew with a Hex but it doesn't come out of the lock... washer/nut/whatever it is.

    Any SIG guys want to lend their knowledge?

    I believe there is a roll pin that needs to be tapped out
