Model 721 Front Sight

Post by West Coast 63 »

Howdy, new here to RSA. I have a 1961 270win and the front sight is missing. The front ramp is on the gun but the slide in sight is gone and I would like to make the gun as correct as possible. Who made those inserts and were they brass or steel? I have looked at every pic I can find and it is hard to tell. Also there seems to be more than one style, is this true? Any help would be great, thanks.

hi, West Coast 63; i had the same issue, front sight removed and lost years ago... i found such a sight with gold bead at a gun show several years ago; may or may not be correct, but it fits and fills that ugly hole!
