I have a Ruger Mini-14 GB on which the rear sight got buggered up. This has the same rear sight as a standard Mini-14, i.e., NOT a Ranch Rifle.

I have a complete replacement rear sight assembly. Can someone tell me how to remove the original rear sight?

Thanks.

Hi Dave,

Sorry I can't help directly, but check out Perfect Union... http://www.perfectunion.com/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=86

They're big for Mini's and I'm certain if you search you'll find out how to do that, if not, just ask~ like here at THR, everyone over there have been very quick to help!

Good luck~ NY'er

JasonAC556 at PerfectUnion BBS provided the following instructions, which worked:

1. Take a small punch and remove the pin that holds the windage screw captive. You will see it on the right side of the sight assembly as you shoulder the rifle.

2. Depress the windage adjustment pin on the left side of the assembly and unscrew the windage adjustment knob until it slides free of the assembly. Be careful to keep the adjustment pin captive so it doesn't fly across the room.

3. Carefully lift up on the back of the sight assembly. The elevation adjustment pin spring and pin will drop free from the bottom of the sight assembly, so be careful not to lose these.

4. You're done!!
