Default SKS gunsmith in Sacramento?

I have a Yugo SKS 59/66 that I am replacing the rear sight with a Matador Arms Razor scout mount. The rear sight came off with no problem, but I can't get the rear sight spring out. Anyone experienced with doing this? I found only one YouTube video on this subject, but it is of no real help. I live in South Sacramento, but am willing to go a reasonable distance if I can get this done while I wait.

Thanks,

Sweaty Bullitts

Thanks for the link, but that's the one video I found. Unfortunately, the hard part was already done and not included in the video. My SKS doesn't have nearly the same amount of side-to-side room, and I can't get anything under the rear part of the spring.

Anybody know of a gunsmith who knows how to do this?
