i would like something that has a synthetic stock and blued in 308 or 30-06. i would prefer somthing with iron sites but still capable of mounting a scope if i decide later. i no its not much to go on but thought you guys might have some suggestions. it seems that the guns i have looked at none have sites
but are scope ready any suggestions is appreciated

not alot of guns with irons these days and if they have em they arent very good
check out the CZ line

+1 for the CZ.
You might want to also look at the Remington 700 BDL, it has iron sights on it.:)

what about savage, remington, or winchester do any of them make or have made any models like this. is there a specific model cz i should be looking at
i dont really mind who makes the rifle just want a good all around gun if there is such a thing and i am most likely going to put a scope but would like sights for backup just in case.

Iron sights on rifles are few and far between these days. Maybe an older used rifle would be something to consider.
You could have a budget rifle like the Marlin fitted with sights.
Savage has a nice one but it's not cheap.
Some models of Rossi and NEF single shots have the iron sights.

Synthetic/blued but w/o the iron sights: Weatherby Vanguard. Very good firearm at a low price.

u might wanna talk to a local gunsmith to see how much it would be to put irons on a rifle without them
if its cheap id look into the marlin xl-xs7 series

I got your blued synthetic 308 with sights:
I get 1.75 inches at 100 yds with mine. 3" at 200 yards.
Good enough for government work!

Also if you could find someone to import them, Australia is making a kick ass Lee Enfield in 308 with sights. Great wood and blued metal. Accurate. They have them in Canada.
Other than that:
World War II surplus SMLE's are excellent bolt actions with open sights, and very affordable. They shoot 303 british but I believe some later ones were 7.62 NATO. You will not find a faster cycling bolt action.
