Removal of Anschutz 525 rear iron sight

Dear all, I was just wondering if someone out there had been successful in removing the rear iron sight from their Anschutz 525? I'm attempting to fit a Hawke 4-16X50 AD IR Mil-dot to it and using higher scope mounts makes it uncomfortable to use. Currently the objective lens is just brushing the folded down rear sight so I only need a few more millimeters! Any advice will be gratefully received!

The one on my father's 520 is a folding leaf in a dovetail - so it is just drifted out. Not sure is the 525 is the same, though.

Many thanks Daula, with a little bit of encouragement it worked a treat! Thank you for your help.
