Wanted: Custom Left Handed Semi Auto Rimfire

Just getting paperwork together for the variation:

I am looking for the mutts nutts 22LR semi auto rimfire, with left handed ejection and left / ambi stock. Must be excellent condition and shoot excellent groups.

Not into stainless steel guns or laminate stocks, but otherwise pretty flexible. Need to be able to take an atlas bipod on the forestock.

Have sent emails to Rimfire Magic and Rude Fat Dog, but worth seeing if anybody has one they are looking to part with...

I'm awaiting replies to this with interest as AFAIK there are no left hand port semi auto rimfire actions.

Greg at Rude Fat Dog said he could build me a left hand side ejector and left hand side lever ... not sure if price is different to right handed action....but it is expensive.

SYSS make lovely rifles, mostly ambi, so no problem for us lefty's!

It's my only rifle that isn't full lefty, but causes me no problems at all

I'll take your word on it Adrian.

If anybody has a (relatively) very accurate custom 22LR that will not take my eyes out then let me know.

Not interested in exposed stainless steel barrels/gubbins or laminate stocks...

I am left handed and I shoot a 10-22 Ruger with an arc angle ambi stock.

Never noticed an issue with the ejection

Its bog standard and will group 1/2" at 25m rabbits out to 75m no problem and probably better if I wernt the one shooting

Looooooaaaaddss of aftermarket bits to bolt on and make it something special, but for me shooting rabbits and squirrels theres little point as most "flyers" are down to the ammo, not the rifel

If I were target shooting id go that rout but id start with digitaly weighing every round before I shot it

But if you want wood+ accurate? Then surely the only thought would be to buy an Anschutz bolt action?

Savage have a Model 64FL that is a true L/H... but it's not exactly a top-end gun.

There is also the Tanfoglio Appeal, a bullpup with reversible ejection.

There is also the Walther G22, which was available in L/H configuration.

Alternatively, the VZ61 Skorpion is top-ejecting, and the Browning 1900/SA22 is bottom-ejecting.

The Browning and Walther are now out of production but can be found S/H. I don't think anyone would describe the Appeal or the G22 as the "mutt's nuts" but the old Brownings can be lovely little rifles.

Another approach would be to get an AR with a L/H .223 upper from Stag Arms or CMMG, and add a CMMG .22LR conversion kit but this would mean using a .223 barrel, which has a faster twist rate and wider bore than is ideal for .22LR.

Finally, you could mitigate the problem of brass/gas distraction/splash by fitting a Caldwell brass catcher to any high-end R/H .22 with a Picatinny rail.

The Artemis Sawfly .22LR AUG-style rifle was going to offer L/H ejection, but that project sadly seems to have withered on the vine.

Thanks for the info Chasey and Mr Gain. I will have a good look through your information

All things being equal, is it realistic to expect the same grouping at 50m from a custom made S/A Rimfire Magic vs a Anschutz 1416? Or is it never going happen......even if the RM costs 2x the Anschutz?

Miroku are still making the SA 22 I think.

David.

I think EMMA rifles in County Durham import them direct.

Talk to Roger at SYSS - he will give you an honest answer, even though he supplies Rimfire Magic

Also look at the Volquartsen rifles - one of our shooters swears by them, and they really are nice to use.

I am just gearing up to sell my SYSS Rimfiremagic. I bought it new a few years back, it has a the full SYSS action, Green Mountain 16.5" sporter barrel, Power Custom internals just how SYSS made it. It is super accurate and reliable with RWS Club in particular though it likes SK stuff too.
It has a right handed stock, but I could sell it without the stock if interested.

On a good day with no / not much wind, I can get sub 25mm grouping at 50m and even 50mm at 100m with my Ruger 10/22

However as I said the big issue is the buillets. Just empty out a box of Ely .22 or Winchester .22 subs and weigh them on a set of digital scales.

If I am target shooting Ill do this and sort out maybe 30% of them with matching weights (loads) and zero with those for shooting.

If you look at comparison testing, then using Ely Subs (like I do) you found people who are A: Great shots and B: probably spend a fortune on their rifels shooting

.362" group at 50m
.496 group at 75m
.952group at 100m

http://www.accurateshooter.com/guns-of-week/22lr-rimfire-ammo-comparison-test/

So with that in mind I am more than happy with a 1" group at 50 and 2" group at 100m with a Ruger 10/22

Decided will go down the predominantly Kidd route.

The hardest part is deciding on the stock, especially as left handed.
