No it's not act as anything. you can remove.
Your close but thats the second half of how to take off a G&G front sight. Where the sling is attached you will see a roll pin. Punch this out. After that is done take an allen key and unscrew the grub screw(if you don't do this you will scratch your outer barrel taking your front sight off). After that Follow KND's advice. Oh and BTW G&G loves to have those pins fit in tighter than a virgin so your gonna need to give them a good whack.
