+1 on the Remington 700. They have been making them since the early 60's IIRC, so there are hundreds of thousands (perhaps many more) out there. I have owned a number of them, and all (except the later model heavy barrels) came with iron sights and were drilled for scope mounts. They were (are) built in about every conceivable caliber.

Some people have had troubles with the newer ones, so there is another good reason to buy a used one. For ~$400, you can have a "keeper".

Add mine to the list of voices telling you to buy a used rifle that already has iron sights installed.
