How do you remove the 556 factory hooded sight?

I have to swap out this one for the 550 hooded since the 556 one sits too high for my Swiss diopter.

Is it as simple as punching out the roll pin and just disassemble from there? Or is there more to it?

I followed the above instructions and removed the front hooded sight without a problem. Just remember when you are removing the front sight from the dovetail to spray some CLP on the area and let it soak in for awhile and to support the gas block before you drive out the sight from the dovetail.
