I got it lined up yesterday and thanks for all the help everyone.

Wondering on how to remove factory sights. I removed the fron one, but the screw stuck up from barrel due to length. ANy suggestions?

Thanks.

Midway sells plug screws to fill the holes, or if you have a gunsmith close they may have some.

Won't hurt it to leave it out.

The plugs are cheap or some have just used parrafin wax to plug them up to keep crud out. I personally like to use the plugs and ant-iseize them in case you wanted to put them back on at some point or sell the gun.

Local gunsmith would be my recommendation.
