    Default Removing the rear sight drum, from the mount?

    Hello,

    How do I remove the rear sight drum, from the base? I have a MP5 rear sight that consists of just the base and the rear drum unit. When I use the Hk sight tool, and place the mount in a vice, the entire drum unit spins. Does it require WD40 and little more elbow grease?

    Thank you

    You use the HK sight tool to release the drum from the spring loaded detents that just make it rotate with clicks.

    I figured it out, wasn’t depressing the tool hard enough to engage the pins. Since, these were separate sights, I got to practice keeping the pins captive. At least I have spares for when I install them on my SP5K and SP5.
