X5 Front sight removal

Finally got my X5 and I am trying to install a Dawson Fiber Optic sight. I cannot remove the original front sight!! ive tapped it lightly with a hammer in a vice took it over to my gunsmith (only builds custom varmint & benchrest rigs so pistols are a hole diff animal) who heated it up thinking its loctited in and tried the punch and hammer in a vice and didnt even move a mm. Whats the trick???
I just read a post on another forum where the guy said he had to cut his out with a dremel? Surely if it went in it can come out without using a dremel!!!!
