Hey guys,
I just bought a t/c encore in 270 win, blued, w/ a synthetic stock. ;D I took it out and only got ten rounds down range. I didn't have a problem hitting my target, but felt I could improve my grouping with a different sight setup. The stock front sight covers up most of my target from 60 yards. It there a smaller front sight bead or another option? I don't want a scope. Thanks guys.

I would agree with you; Encore iron sights could use a lot of improvement but they work. I don't know of any other sight options.

You say you don't want a scope but I'll tell you what I do anyway. I install a Warne Maxima Weaver style scope base and use a scope with quick detachable Warne rings. That way I can easily detach the scope to use iron sights and just as easily put the scope back on and thus have the best of both worlds.

I bought a Stainless Steel Encore with Sythetic stocks in a Muzzle Loader for hunting moose in Alaska.

The rear sight is not stainless steel and due to a little corrision it stuck "down".

I missed a huge bull moose!

I took it off and threw it away. Then added a Weaver-type scope base along with a Leupold scope.

Since a scope is forbidden on some hunts I also added a New England Peep and new front sight of the proper height.

The peep is easy-on, easy-off.

I took a bull moose as well as a bull elk with the peep. Highly recommended.
