Can I remove the front and rear sights from my rifle?

Table of contents


The front and rear sights can be removed from the Model 700, 7400 and 7600 rifles. The front sight changed in 2004. Previous to 2004, there was a front sight base held by two screws and the dovetail front sight tapped into the base. Current models use a one piece front sight that has one screw that attaches it to the barrel.

Once removed on the Model 700, the holes from these can be plugged with the receiver plug screws, located on the top of the receiver.

For the Model 7400 & 7600 you will need to order Model 700 receiver plug screws for the sight holes. To order direct, call our Parts Department at 1-800-243-9700 or visit our online store at
