Rear Sight

I just picked up a Savage 30-06 Springfield Super Sporter. Serial # 18996 The rear iron sight is broken. How do I remove the dovetail piece left? How can I find another rear site to fit. Having a problem locating one?

Thank you, Jim

You can remove the sight by drifting it out with a punch and hammer. Preferably, use a brass punch and tap lightly. If you have access to some kroil (super-penetrating oil) that'll help.

You can probably find a replacement sight at Brownell's or Midway
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
