Thread: Left handed 243 synthetic

    Left handed 243 synthetic

    I have been asked by a friend if anyone has a left handed synthetic 243, probably stainless knowing him. He has thought of going down the custom route because he's a lefty, however who does a left handed rifle as above, do Browning do one, or Howa, any advise appreciated by him and me as always. deerwarden

    There might be someone on here who has a secondhand lefthand synthetic for sale, but that is a VERY rare bird to source. With only 2-3% of the product line to choose from, lefthanders tend to hang on to the few rifles they can get hold of. Synthetics in a true lefthand action have only recently become available so that's another problem.

    You ask if anyone does one so I take it you're considering 'New'. The only candidates here I can think of are the Tikka T3 in blue/synthetic & stainless/synthetic, and the Savage FLSS basic hunter series.

    Hope this helps.

    Have a look on guntrader at Rifles, Bolt action, .243, then refine search by the 'cast' button. There are 10 on there at present:

    The Mauser looks nice but it is almost 3000!

    It gives you an idea of what makers do left handers though.

    As per Lee, glad to see another of the southpaw brigade stepping up. I have been trying to source rifles for some time - and have just completed the current line up - but as a part of that had to do quite a bit of homework!
    As stated previously, there are a few 243's on Guntrader. Tikka and Savage have already been mentioned and Titan also do one. Ruger also do a Hawkeye stainless laminate that would need to be ordered - but it is gorgeous! There's a Ruger synthetic stainless here: guntrader.co.uk - Ruger .243 M77 Mk II Bolt Action New Rifle

    Of the other lefties about, Remington and older Sako - but these are I think wood stock.

    Howa do not do left hand at all and nor do Browning, despite their website saying so.

    Hope this helps - feel free to get in touch if you need more info.
    Cheers
