    If you have a drill press or can use somebodies it makes it a bit easier, you can do it with hand drill but you have to be careful about it.

    I had a machinist take mine out after I broke it off trying to get it out myself. Put a Hi Viz pro comp on it and liked it so much I've put one on more guns. Good luck and Merry Christmas

    I've been using a little dab of epoxy and a #3 steel pellet on the front of my Mag10 for the last 2 years. You could use a #3, #4 or #5; whichever you like.

    Easyhit site. I switched several years ago due to my right hand shooting and left eye dominance. Around 20 to 25 bucks very easy to install and will not come off.

    Drill and tap only after first trying a left handed drill bit. Most of the time it will unscrew the broke piece without screwing up the threads in the barrel.

    I have those, and like them.
    However, I think the OP is trying to return the gun to original condition.

    A small drill and an "Easy-out" is what you need. Dimple the broken sight base with a punch so the drill won't walk. Drill a hole in the sight base. It does not have to be deep. Use the correct size easy-out. The easy-out screws in counter clock wise and as you screw it tight it unscrews the sight base.

    There is probably a video on YouTube on how to use an easy-out.
