    I had to do what Ed is telling you on a front sight when it sheared off even. Just keep the drill square. I got lucky and it spun right loose into the barrel. Good luck.----Matt

    Brownells offers some pin holders that will tighten on the bead and you can screw it out, unless it is glued in.

    Browning mid-beads are usually plastic and are pressed in with a steel sleeve. First remove or break off the plastic bead. Then use a number 50 drill to remove the steel bushing. The drill will catch on the bushing and spin it out.
