    Loctite let's go at over 100 deg c.
    If it's an Geraldine or epoxy putty that could be more.
    But even then 150degc isn't that hot.
    I doubt very much you would do it any harm if using a heat gun.

    Use decent brass drift and punch it up thru the back of the mag well. Punching it fwd or backwards is against the most resistance.

    On the Sako they are driven onto tapered dovetails not mounted to a round action top.
    Punching up from bottom will destroy the rail and possibly the action also!

    To avoid accusations if it goes tits, up I suggest you get the guy who put it on to get it off

    Doh, I should have looked closer. Assumed it was an A7. Should have taken more notice of post #15 as well. And ever dumber considering I have a Forester and a 75 with tapered dovetails.
    That being the case WTF did the gunsmith loctite it. Absolutely no need.
