Multiple Rear Blade Sights?

I recently saw a post on a thread about the best all purpose caliber (sorry, I don't remember who posted it), and they said their choice for the best set up would be a .375 H&H with rear blade sights cut for 50 yds, one for 100 yds, and the third for 200 yds. Now, I've been into shooting sports for well over 12 years, and I've never seen anything like this. Are multiple rear sights common in African hunting? I just don't see how the sight picture would work. It sounds like a good idea though.

Mine rifle is new. The sights are commonly found on newly-made rifles that are made in the "express rifle" style. Not typically found on budget rifles.

I expected not. I have always been into the more "tactical" shooting style here in the US, so I'm not too familiar with hunting rifles, and I'm slowing finding that these are the types of features you can pay dearly for. Thanks for the help!

The CZ 550 Safari is available with multiple leaf express sights. These rifles can be found for under $1000 used and start at just over for new and progress up to the Safari Classics series that can be about $3000.

Thanks! That's just what I was looking for. I'll have to do some research and see what people have to say about it.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
