I searched for the answer to this one, yo no success.  I have a model 15-2 with a rear sight that has what appears tp be a seized windage screw.  With reasonable pressure, trying not to round out the allen head screw or break something, it will not move.  

 

Was there a solution to this somewhere here at the DWF in a previous thread?

 

Thanks in advance!

I plan to remove it and soak it in a Kroil bath.  I did not yet.  The odd thing is it does not seem 'sticky' tight, it seems seized tight, if that makes sense. 

 

Thanks for the reminder about Kroil.

A little moisture can corrode those very fine treads easily and make it feel seized.

Kroll is very good, but I’ve also had great success with the Seafoam penetrating oil.

Kroil and maybe warm it with a heat gun.  

Couldn't have been red Loctited by a previous owner?

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

If a man designed it, and a man built it, then a man can fix it.
