Default Replacing AK front sight bases

Is it necessary to remove the barrel to properly/safely replace (press on and press off) a front sight base on an AK?

When the new base is pressed on, what part(s) of the gun should be used as the contact point(s) for bracing? i.e. trunnion, rear/chamber end of barrel ?
