Needing some help my front sight is stuck on my Remington 1187 12ga looks to be a Bradley sight so it should screw out. The front white bulb is broke here is a pic of what it did look like.

Or you can just glue in a new white "ball".
It does screw out.

A gunsmith should be able to change it in a couple of minutes.

Thanks everyone for your helpful info. I put liquid wrench on it and soaked it over night then used a small amount of heat and still to no avail. Talked to a gunsmith who said he can fix it. Thanks for the offer Casonet but going to have a gold bead put back on it because i'm a wingshooter and never use the sights anyhow plus i hate seeing that big white dot in my peripheral vision. Again TY all.
