    Re: Left Hand Rifles - How much interest is there in "Ready To Ship" left hand rifles

    Being a lefty, I would like to see more of them out there, but Im not sure if it would be worth your while. Your not making money if they are sitting in the shop. As long as you can have one done in say 8weeks or so, I wouldn't be concerned with stocking them. If you were to, I would stick to more mainstream Cartridges like the 300rum, 7stw, and 260rem.

    As a southpaw i'm so used to not having anything that even remotely resembles what i'm looking for, this is intriguing; it could fill a niche, but demand will never be what it is for righties. Who knows, a couple to "test the water" might not be a bad idea...but what caliber???

    I am relying on this POLL at LRH for cartridges to determine what is mainstream.

    More likely, for lefty's I would not stock completed ones but rather offer the "4 to 6 weeks" timing.

    Well, Len, I can tell you this.
    When I pull up LRH on the computer, the first thing I go to is the classified sections to see what left handed goodies are up for sale. So............for me, it is always nice to see rifles, especially custom ones up for sale. I also don't think that a 4 to 6 week waiting period is too bad.

    my two cents worth.

    I'm not in the market for a new rifle right now but as a lefty the 4 to 6 week option would be very attractive as opposed to waiting months for a traditional build. My 2/100ths of a dollar.

    Re: Left Hand Rifles - How much interest is there in "Ready To Ship" left hand rifles

    Len,

    This is new area for me, cause I'm right handed, but 3 of my 4 sons are Leftys. My oldest is coming of age to start hunting and I have started him out on a semi custom ruger M77 mkII in a .243 AI. right handed model.

    I'm not ready to buy Left handed rifles just to find out that they don't want to hunt. I am interested in abidexterous rifles like Ruger no. 1s. But It only seems natural that those who are leftys would want to shoot what us right handed guys have. So, I think there is a small market for the left handed rifles.

    I would keep it as a 4-6 week option, just don't get carried away with a left handed premium price as that would bring unwanted critisizim (dang, I cant spell worth a darn).

    Just my opinion,

    Dan
