Left Hand 25-06

OK guys.. Do any of the companies out there build a left hand 25-06. I have a buddy who is just getting into shooting and want something that he can shoot yotes and deer with and not give him the "Flinch" some guys get..

Whith out breaking the bank..

But he is a lefty..

Any thoughts????

Thanks

    Savage would be the starting point for price... Ruger did make a nice "black" laminate stocked rifle, which appeared to be a little heavier then most others, but nice an a decent price. But Ruger may have ceased production on this model in 2009, so I don't think there making it any more. They do make the 77 in walnut and black barrel. So you may need to visit their website to check on the 25-06.

    Tikka and Browning would make one. I don't think that Winchester M70 in left has been on the market since the older production plant closed in 2006.

    almost all of the above rifles, with the exception of the Savage 116 may require a shoulder pad upgrade.

    The "Weatherbees" are more pricey an are limited to their Magnum calibers.

    A lot of other stuff is semi custom, or custom build, but there are a few choices out there if one looks for adds in rifle magazines and checks their websites.

    Savage makes the model 11 in a left-hand 25-06 with laminate stock and accutrigger. Weighs in at 6.5 lbs so it should be a good carry rifle. Estimate cost to be about $450.

    Just fo clarification on your note: when you say OP do you mean "Original Poster".

    Also, I been to the most recent Ruger firearms site that I found on google and they are not showing the Laminate stainless in Left Hand... Unless I'm not seeing it there. They are showing the Walnut - blued barrel. I do recall that in previous year production models they had it on their gun site. But I'm always willing to "stand to be corrected".
