I bought a scout-type scope mount for my M48A - it bolts onto the rear sight fixture, which normally holds the rear sight "ladder". The ladder is held in place by spring force pushing up, and a pin which goes through the two holes in the base.

My problem is that I cannot remove the cross-pin. Is there a trick, or do I just need a stronger punch and bigger hammer?


ps- I should add that this is one of the unissued Yugo M48A's.

Smithz, the pin should come out. There's no trick to it just keep trying. George
