Just picked up a 308 Scout today. Forward mounted a 2 3/4 power Burris on it but, I also wanted to mount a conventional 1x4 power and get them both sighted in.
Problem is the rear sight. Tried to remove the screw but it would not budge. Does Ruger use a thread locking compound on these things?
Thanks for any input!

Ruger has a Gorilla they use for the sole purpose of screwing in TORX, Allen Head and Slotted Screws, said Gorilla uses a Breaker Bar for Final Torque along with copious amount of Lok-tite........................................

It's essentualy the same crappy sight they use on the Mini-14. About all you gotta do to get the sight off is shoot the gun for a while and the screw will vibrate itself out of it's hole and the sight will then fall right off....

......hey, don't laugh....it works.
Took mine less than 50 rounds.

The rear sight and rail were a pita when I set up a conventional scope on my GSR...........................
