no need to remove it...just a slight tap or use the sight tool. I use a cheap set of feeler gauges to make witness marks with a pencil on the front sight.its a close enough systemIf I want to risk it, I could take the front sight off, reverse it, and line up the witness marks. I just hammered it back very close to center. FWIW, I'm not messing with it!
