can u see anywhere on top where the smith might have peened those ears down to clamp the sight in place? if so just use a bigger hammer and be cautious about your punch, otherwise i would say its just some glue, alot of people over do the securing of rear sights because they're afraid of it moving, thats what set screws and locktite are for lol, ur on the right track tho, switch from your dead blow to a medium ball peen and make sure youve got a solid bench there, if you can remove the slide easily do that so youve got an easier to handle work piece

Ok thanks I will try that I also thought about trying to heat it up but not sure how easily that could be done without damaging the gun or discoloring the metal

heating would help if its glued somehow, hopefully its locktite, use a solder gun to keep from discoloring the metal, just hold it to the sight base for a little bit and give it a good whack, hopefully it will break loose.

any time, let me know if you need any more help, i can do minor gun work if it doesnt require any machining, just kinda grew up in it.
