The whole front sight. There is a pin on top in the center right to left, but I cannot punch it out.

Use a short punch if you have one and a good solid rest for the sight. Some of those pins can be a real bugger.

Be sure to drive the pin out from left to right (viewed from the shooting position) A slight amount of heat on the bottom of the band and it should tap off fairly easy. Use a brass, plastic, wood, or aluminum block to keep from damaging the sight.
