first we need a little more info.... is your woodsman a target or match ? post or prewar?

second, whats the sight screw doing? spinning (stripped) or frozen?

if its frozen you can remove the rear sight assembly and put a few drops of penetrating oil on it, let is sit a day or so and see if it will not loosen up.

if it is stripped you might be able to put some pressure on it , pushing the blade to the right while turning the screw....
sight assemblies and a few sight parts for SOME variations are available at numrich gun parts

Thanks for replying. The woodsman is postwar, the screw turns but does not move the sight, I think it might be stripped. any clues on how to remove the assembly? thanks

you should have a pin thru the slide and sight assembly. punch the pin and it should come out.... careful tho, there should also be a little spring under the assembly, you want to keep that from flying away.

i know i shouldnt have to say this but please make sure you remove the magazine, empty the chamber and remove the slide BEFORE you attempt any type of repair on your firearm.....
