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

Interesting idea, it takes me longer than 4-8 weeks to get just a barrel delivered. If you could minimize your investment by just keeping a couple of actions in stock and be able to fill the right hand bolt cut out in stocks to accomodate lefties it could open more of the market without tying up a lot of capital.

I'm always interested in left handed rifles.

My immediate action would be that delivery time is not that high on a prioritized list of purchase criteria for a specialized long range rifle. Since everything has a business cost, or trade-off, I suspect you would get a better payback by fucusing on other elements of your offering. Customer demand would also improve. I recently purchased a a long range rifle package. While I certainly wanted it tomorrow, I traded off delivery time for other more important requirements. Like many,, I already had rifles that I use for LR shooting, and the purchase of a custom platform was viewed as a an investment that would stand above my other rigs and hold a dominate position for a long time. It was well worth the wait.

How many LH rifles do you sell in a month? 6 months? Does that make it cost effective to stock a couple of LH actions? What is the waiting time when you order a action? Maybe you just need to keep the option of a build if someone has a need. I would rather custon order a rifle and get it built with what I want on it. I just got thru building a rifle,it took 8 months. The wait was worth it.

My 15-year old son just could not shoot well from the bench until someone said, "you are right handed, but left eyed - try shooting left handed" and he was great. I too am right handed but left eyed.


So the population of left hand bench rest shooting might be (a) bigger than 10%, and (b) something that might grow as people realize that left eyed people should shoot left handed from the bench.


My son and I still shoot pistols right handed, just tilt your head a little and shoot with both eyes open.

BEING A SOUTHPAW it realy sucks to get quality products. it would be great to see more options avalible to us. Waiting a couple of months to get a to get a custom rifle would be quite fine. Email me a price list when you make a decision. Thanks for thinking about us.

Good morning

I have decided to order in a bunch of left hand actions and stocks. They will arrive in early December. I will wait for orders to build specific left hand rifles -- unlike currently for my "ready to ship" right hand rifles.

Normally completion for left hand rifle orders will be in 4 to 6 weeks from order -- same as for right hand orders. I am taking pre-orders now but obviously for these pre-orders the time line is dependent on initial component delivery.

Since at this time I expect that I will NOT be charging higher pricing for left hand than I charge for right hand, the pricing can be seen here right now.

Custom, precision, left hand long range hunting rifles

take the two most popular calibers (based on order history) and keep those ready to ship.
