Re: Left Hand Rifles - How much interest is there in "Ready To Ship" left hand rifles
I bought my first lefthand rifle in 1975. It was a Mark V Weatherby in .240 Weatherby. Previously, I had used what most lefthanders get by with: right hand bolt actions, semi-autos, etc.
Since then, I have bought and used a variety of lefthanded bolt actions, including more Weatherbys, Brownings, Sakos, Tikkas, Kimber of Oregon, Savages, and others.
So, to answer your question, yes. I am a firm believer that a true lefthanded version is superior for a good shooter in many ways.
And, for a chuckle: When I am trying to buy a lefthanded version somewhere, the salesman almost always says something like this: You will never see another one of these, so you will have to pay through the nose for it.
But, when I am trying to sell a lefthander to a dealer, the salesman usually says, "I will have to discount this substantially because almost no one wants a lefthanded version......."
