Every one I've seen were both sweated and cross-pinned. I've heard of some that were JUST pinned, but if you assume that and try to beat the sight off without heating and is IS sweated--well, you can imagine things aren't going to work out so well. You only have to heat to about 650 degrees max to break the sweat bond--nothing that will do any damage to the action or barrel, and a small plumber's torch will handle that easily without excess heat that could cause problems.
