Hey all. I was curious if anybody knows who makes a .270 bolt action with open sights. At first glance I haven't seen one surfing the net. Thanks.

All rifles are made with open sights in one model or another to my knowledge.Most rifles HAVE open sights, opposed to a few that do not.
Check the remington site for example > Products.Firearms>Centrefire..They make a host of models, covers the whole perspective pretty well.

Thanks. I like open sights. I grew up with it and would like to keep shooting that way until I either go deer hunting or get old and start to have weaker eyes. Most of my hunting will be pig and probably will entail short-distant shots. Anyway, that's my reasoning, but I'm still learning. For piggies I may end up acquiring a nice lever action.

Remington 700 BDL still is made with iron sights. Last I checked .270 was one of their popular calibers. Just about anyone making a bolt gun today offers one in .270 Win.

open site 270

remington and savage both make open sighted 270's. unfortunately they are both the basic models. if you have your eye on a more specific model, there are several companies that make peep/ghost ring/open sight that use the ring base holes as mounts. Also Williams makes a peep sight that bolts onto a weaver style base. I have a williams peep on my 03a3 and can group three shots into three inches offhand.
