Default Garand rear sight removal

Hey guys. Ok, I'm stumped.....or at least to scared to ruin something before I find out what I am doing. :-) I have the entire rear sight of one of my Garands removed except the dust cover. What is the trick to getting that off? I assume it has to be tensioned but from which end, where, and how to without bending/scratching/damaging it? Thx!

I haven't disassembled one yet. So, I can't actually vouch for this, but it looks good.

Pretty good information here in the "Tech Info" section, too:

Use a toung depressor ect to pop the cover off from the back as shown in the diagrams. They show using a screw driver but that tends to scratch the cover especially when putting it back on.
I found out the hard way but the scratches don't show after the fact.

Thumbs up

Thank you all for your help and answers. And please accept my humble apologys......the info was right here in the tech data all along......found it when I googled. Don't know why I didn't think to check here first. Massive hemoraging leaky brain fart, I suppose! :-) Have a great weekend. Hey, anybody in W. Tx. there is a gunshow in Midland this weekend. It's usually a pretty good show this time of year! Later.
