Never seen or heard of a stock 10/22 sight that wasn't dovetailed into the front barrel band. The barrel band is machined as part of the barrel and is not removable. The front sight dovetails into the upper squared off part.

To put a flash hider on a stock 10/22 you either have to use a slip on, that goes over the existing barrel band. It has a notch for the upper part of the sight and a set screw to hold it in place. The other alternative is threading the end of the barrel which means machining down the barrel band and removing the front sight.
