    Ask Home what they have as they remove factory barrels to replace with new ones, so the factory barrels are usually fine.

    If its a 223 I wouldn't bother..........Tell me where it is. I'm after one.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Being a fellow lefty, if you have found a mint left handed 595 in a deer legal calibre, the deer won't notice the difference. If is wrong because you don't have that calibre On your ticket just get a variation. A simple explanation that left handed rifles are like hens teeth and choice of calibre is limited you should be fine.

    Give Brian Fox a ring if you do want a re-barrel he can do you a stainless steel fluted barrel fitted in any common stalking calibre for 450 all in.

    my last quote from rhino rifles for a pacnor super match fluted 24 inch in 6x47 lapua was 680 threaded fitted and proofed
    however this may be cheaper with more popular calibers

    +1 with Thar. Give Brian Fox (Fox Firearms) a ring. You may well be pleasantly surprised at the stock he carries. A really big bonus- if it isn't right he doesn't argue he just fixes it.

    What would constitute "Not right", & is it a regular occurrence?
