Thread: Left handed rifles

    Left handed rifles

    It seems my idea of turning my 2 Left Handed Remington 700 SPS Varmints into sporters is a non starter.

    Looking for opinions on alternative options.

    Maybe Sako 85 ?

    Sako 85 not many left handed models. Try tikka

    Tikka T3 would be my choice.
    Why both right away? Maybe start by just changing the one you might do more walking with.

    Alternatively check around rifle smiths for remmy take off barrels. I recently got a brand new Remmy 223 sporter barrel froma custom rifle builder to fit onto a 17rem rem700. Shoots fantastic.

    I emailed Neil and he explained the costs of rebarreling then trying to find Left Handed stocks and I was up over 1,000.
    Neil did suggest a take off barrel removed from another rifle might be an option to consider.

    The 2 calibres are .223 and .308.
    So the .308 would be my stalking rifle but .223 for foxes and munty

    I went blaser. 1 rifle 2 barrels. Yeah still not cheap even secondhand. I did have a t3 lite in 223 and 243 left hand. Really nice

    I wonder how much the pre-chambered Bergara Barrels are? Piece of cake to fit with the Gauges,
