Thread: Change of rifle - Left Hand

  1. #1

    Change of rifle - Left Hand

    I am looking to replace my current 30-06 rifle with a new one. It is a Browning A Bolt stalker in stainless steel and it has given sterling service over a number of years but it is getting time to change. At the time of purchase it was one of the few rifles that was available in left hand and that was within my price range. I have looked at the usual suspects and one of the problems seems to be the waiting time for delivery. If anyone has any information or personal knowledge of any LH rifles in 30-06 I would be grateful to hear from you, especially if you have bought one recently.

    Regards

    The hunt for left handed rifles is a frustrating one. The Sauer on Guntrader is a beautiful thing and will serve you well - and a not dissimilar price to a new Tikka or whatever. Have you thought about rebarrelling/semi-customing what you have?
    Nooooooooooooobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!! Our main weapon is.........

    Tikka T3 are good. Remington 700 LH good as well. Owned both: still own the T3.

    You're dead right about the frustration. I did think about having some work done to the Browning but I went down that route with a Remy a few years ago and after I got the rifle back and the bill I wished I hadn't bothered. I'll have a look on Guntrader. Thanks

    i had exactly the same problem , but ive sorted it now , i sourced a sako 691 in 270 at holts for £300 and its being sent to jagerSA on here to be re-barreled , all in all im getting a semi custom rifle for the price of a factory rifle in left handed or there abouts .

    mind you took me a long time to find the right action at the right price !

    Left hand Rifle frustration............I've had a lifetime of it !
    Eventually went for a R93 all left handed. OK, it cost a "pretty penney" but its worth it...to me anyway !

    There is someone on here who specialises in lh rifles or at least always has a few but can't remember who it is for the life of me. Anyway I have 2 Tika's in LH and neither of them your size but me love them big time.
    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 .
