    Default Xisico XS46U Front sight removal

    I've got a fixed barrel springer, Xisico XS46U.
    Can the front sight be removed without taking off the complete housing? Since the housing also holds the cocking arm I cannot just remove the front sight housing.
    Attached is a photo from the web

    Looks like it is an integrated moulding, so answer is probably no.

    I agree, but I was hoping.

    Ja ja. Why have I not thought of that lol.
    No I want to mount a red dot on the rifle. But since I can see the original sights through the red dot, and the dot "shines" directly on the front sight when zeroed, it will not work unless I remove the front sight.
    Dremeling it off will mess up resale value if I might wanna sell the rifle later.

    I am mounting a red dot as I have never heard of one that was broken by a springer. But, saying that, I am sure a few links proving the opposite will be posted

    See if you can get some replacement fibre optic insert material and just remove the existing one for now.

    That way you can fit a new insert if needed in the future.

    I have a Gamo replay Magnum. A spring gun not a gas ram. its a monster and shoots 30ft.lbs + out the box. It broke 2 gamo scopes(including the one it came with) within the 1st 5 shots. Red dots were not recommended to me for this springer in this thread.

    I did however end up with a Hawke fixed 4x scope which has so far survived the magnum.

    Thanks I have seen that thread.
    I have read about guys on the Airgunbbs forum who put this Hawke RD25 red dots on various airguns. One guy has one on a HW80 for more than 5000 shots and still counting. I have no idea how smooth or hard the recoil is of a HW80.

    The HW80 is a quality rifle and quite mild on recoil, even when running at its full design power.

    Chalk and cheese compared to the steaming shit pile that is a Gamo Swarm Magnum.

    Magnum powered springers such as the super powerful Gamos are at best a quest for long term pain suffering and expensive looking for optics and fodder that will work
    PS they are terrible to repair and work on

    thus there is a still a cult following of FWB 300s Spring powered rifles, and they stopped making them decades ago
    even the HW 30 is a much respected and seldom sold on springer

    both do about 6 foot pounds of energy
