    Favorite LH Rifes

    Gents,

    What are your favorite left handed rifles or rifles that cater to a LH shooter? Ill go first- I love anything made by the Montana Rifle Company b/c they will build anything LH. I have a 350 Rem mag and a 375 H&H by them and love the CRF action and the model 70 style. For your money they are the best out there in my opinion.

    Secondly I really like the Rem 788's. One of the most accurate actions I have ever had and I put a bull barrel on my 308 and it will shoot a hair of a fly's ass.

    Third, I really like Ruger MKII M77's. Great actions and shooters too.

    I would like to find a Zastava LH...they look like fun.

    Feel Free to post pics. I will later.

    I have always been on a budget. That's how I ended up with my Savages. They are pretty accurate. I am a hunter so accuracy is good enough for me. I will not post pictures of my rifles as they are used and abused. They have served me well over the years and are still dropping animals for me.

    One of the intriguing things about the Savage is that you can re-barrel the rifle yourself - no need for a gunsmith. I re-barreled one of mine to a 30-06 AI. Provides just a little more oomph that the standard '06. Just wanted something a little different.

    I have also enjoyed my Savages. Earlier this year, I bought a Tikka T3X in LH 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser. Also, just placed an order for a Zasatava in LH 9.3x62.

    For the money, Savage and Tikka are both hard to beat as far as accuracy. If those two companies don't own the market for accuracy in rifles under $1000, they certainly have the market cornered.

    If you've never seen any of Matt Dubber's youtube videos, you should. He and a buddy of his each shoot a 260 Rem - one's a Savage, the other is a Tikka. They both can ring the gong from 600 yards or better with basically stock rifles. They've both gotten rid of the factory stocks, but as far as action and barrel, it's straight up OEM equipment.

    If it weren't for a loose nut on the trigger, my Savages and my Tikka are all tack-drivers.

    I'm a righty but am curious if left handed guns cost more than regular guns? I have played guitar most of my life and left handed guitars usually carry a 10-15% surcharge over regular guitars. It sounds silly but I guess they have to tool things differently and wondered if it was the same for guns.

    I have several left hand rifles, one is a Tikka stainless varmint in 6.5x55, a Zastava in .222, a few levers I use as a lefty and also an Anschutz 1903 I use for rimfire benchrest.
    At the moment I am saving for a Turbo l/h for rimfire benchrest.

    I had a BDL Custom Deluxe in LH 30-06 that I bought with tomato money (at 25 cents/lb) for $315 way back around 1980 or so. Good hunting rifle. My big gripe about Remingtons is that you have to replace the stock, or do a lot of work to the factory stock, if you want to float the barrel. I guess they feel like they're popular enough without having to do that, but it's an annoyance to me when I can get a "cheap" Savage or Tikka, both with floated barrel, and aluminum bedding in the case of Savage, plus an adjustable trigger. And the Tikka is a couple pounds lighter, with a box magazine.

    Did that come from their custom shop, or did you start with a 30-06 that you customized? For the longest time, before I ordered my 9.3x62, I had thought about pinging Savage's custom shop to build me a LH 35 Whelen model 116.

    I keep telling myself that I have "enough" hunting guns, that it's time to start collecting C&R. I really want something in
    .284 - probably 7mm-08 since Savage and Tikka both offer lefties in that caliber
    .338-06 - I want a 338, just not the mag. Will probably order one from Savage's custom shop at some point
    .416 - probably a 416 Ruger since they're available in LH, too, though I've seen a few LH 416 Rigbys
