Couple of queries.

Has anyone found the XS sight's rear locating pillar to NOT drop into the corresponding receiver sight hole? It enters, but will not enter fully to allow the sight to sit on the receiver.

I'm wondering whether its because my 444Marlin is a 1978 rifle? I suppose the solution is to dress it down in diameter.

Secondly ... my rifle has the narrower spacing on the front sight as another front from a 30/30 was fitted when its barrel was lopped. How do you remove what I assume is a screw (its got a slotted head) from the bottom side of the XS front sight so I can use that hole? It's in there as tight as buggery ... soaking in WD40 at the moment ... but it just doesn't seem to want to come out.

Any suggestions?
