What am I missing, I pulled the "pivot pin" but what else is holding the sight in place? Do I need to depress the leaf underneath it, or is there a roll pin that has to be driven out. Bought the Accumount scope base to put in place of the elevated sight.

Once the pin is out?

Raise the sight fully up, Push it DOWN harder then your fingers think you should, then slide it back out of the base.

If that don't work, cause you have soft fingers?
Have a hard handed friend push it down, while you smack it with something softer then a steel ball-peen hammer, without hitting your hard handed friends fingers.

It should pop down under the hooks and up over the lief spring and come right out.
