    My right eye is useless, been that way for65 years at least. I am right handed but have to shoot lefty. I'm just as fast with a righty bolt as most righties. I've tried left hand bolts and no way can I do it. Probably if I had a lefty from the day the problem was found it would work. In fact I just picked up a Rem 700 BDL RH. Start the munchkins off early with the RIGHT tool and stand back and smile..

    Fella's;

    Go to the rimfire bolt action section & pick up the thread "Well, Maybe, Finalized". I just posted pictures of what I believe to be the world's only left hand CZ452 fullstock.

    Hammertime, t'were I you, Id very seriously consider a left hand Tikka in 6.5 Swede. Mine runs 140 grain Sierra Gamekings at 2725 fps & will do the job at any reasonable range. Let's say 400 yards max. The ballistics and energy are there, over 2100 fps & over 1400 ft lbs at 400 yards according to the JBM site. The accuracy is astounding from a relatively thin barreled hunting gun. I live in Outer Montana & am not afraid to elk hunt with it at all. Recoil is modest, performance is world-class.

    Leftys have learned from early on to adapt to the right-handed world. The problem isn't so much the action, (I, for one, am completely comfortable with right hand actions), it's the fit of certain styles of stocks. Forget the thumbholes, (not a big fan anyway), and even the beautiful high combed monte carlos With very few exceptions, we're limited to the symmetric designs of the hunters, etc. This even goes for the cast on / cast off aspects of shotgun stocks. It's all OK though.. we're a very adaptable bunch... by necessity.

    I am a lefty (the bolt on the CORRECT side) and I have a few rifles in left handed. ie. Tikka, CZ, Zastava, savage. My very first lefty was a Remington 788 in 308. (That was when Rem knew how to make rifle properly).

    Got this earlier this year. It's a Savage Model 14 Classic in .243 and I don't think Savage has carried it into 2015. They have the Lightweight hunter which has a walnut stock but I don't think they make them in lefty anymore.

    It shoots real good! These were the results of my last day at the range I posted in another thread. Some 3 and 5-shot groups of my reloads at 100 yards.

    Got one of 'em in a stainless varmint, super accurate and smooth as butter.

    Good thread, gun manufactures seldom cater to the south-pal community...

    Six years ago when I was looking for a youth deer rifle for my lefty son, there were few options. We ended up settling for a youth model Remington 700SPS in 7mm-08. A plain looking matte finished synthetic stock rifle. A little heavy on the recoil for a then 10yr old, but with reduced recoil loads it was manageable. Now that he is older and a added stock spacer later, he has grown into the caliber nicely.

    Last year he wanted a larger rifle, something for long range hunting on the high lines and also something more inline with an elk or moose hunt. He was discouraged that most lefty rifles looked very plain, he was into something a bit more dressy; i.e. something in stainless and a pretty laminate. This past winter, by shi_ luck, I stumbled across a LH Ruger M77 Hawkeye in 300win mag, laminate and stainless. Preowned, but still like new still in the box. I had been previously briefed by my local gun dealer that Ruger discontinued the line, so for my boy I jumped at the opportunity. My son could not have been happier at Xmas.

    Shotguns are another sore subject in my household. But in the past year it seems that at least one manufactures have gotten on the south-pal band wagon. Remington now chambers their Versa Max in a left handed version. An awesome auto shotgun that truly ejects from the left.

    And still looking for more...

    I am left eye dominant but naturally right handed. When I was about 10 yrs old I started to try out shooting left handed once I read in scout magazine how to check which eye is dominant. Once I made the switch the Ithaca Model 37 pump shotgun that loads and ejects through the bottom seemed to make sense and so my father purchased one for me to use. Became a favorite gun to carry in field.

    I bow hunt with left handed bow.Diamond Ice.

    Recently I did purchase bolt action gun RH version because I figured the right handed children in my family would enjoy shooting it more than a LH configured bolt. More RH shooters in my family. But the Savage was available LH.

    They do but have cut back the models and calibres a little in recent years.

    I picked up my very first CZ 452 LH in .22 LR this past Friday. I actually had to pay more than MSRP because they are not that easy to find anymore, since they went to the 455 production and the 452 will only be available in LH for a limited time. How long, I can't say.

    I would like to get one in .223 before they end 452 production. That would go nicely with the .22 LR.
