Though this may work, it is beyond my abilities, physically. I'd have to have someone else do it. Could that potentially damage the sight removal tool though?

I would remove the nylon piece and maybe use a small piece of hard wood.

I have seen some that are very tight. I had to use a GI removal tool with the hammer punch built in. You tighten it down and hit it with a hammer. Then tighten it down again and hit it with a hammer. The tools were made that way for a reason. Some rear sights can be tough.

It has been mentioned to use heat, maybe not a torch but, maybe try the oven.
