Re: Left Handed Long Range Setup

I just talk to someone that confirmed that the Stevens 200 was never made in a left-handed action. I want a stainless steel action and Browning doesn't make them so I am leaning towards Remington. Honestly I am struggling to find anything in a lefty, getting very frustrated.

    I looked just yesterday on Gallery of Guns, and they had on hand 2- savage package rifles in 7mag. I used them to buy a left hand Savage in .223 last year and was very happy. Also seen a left hand stainless Rem.700 in I think a 7mag in the guns for sale section on this website.

    Did you contact NSS (Jim Briggs) as previously suggested?

    Sorry Blueman, the rifle I seen on this site was a 30-06. Still a beautiful rifle, and a very effective choice for deer.

    No problem, thanks for all the help everyone. Yes I did get ahold of Jim. He told me they never made a lefty in the Stevens 200, also said you can't buy a lefty savage action right now either. Looks like I'm going to have to but a complete gun. The trouble is still finding one, the hunt continues.

    That's why I asked because he would know. Another option for Stevens or Savage action is to ...

    NOTE: There are happy customers but do your home work before doing so.

    IIWY, I'd seriously consider Lefty7mmstw's recommendation on Tikka. Tikka's aftermarket support and following is growing, i.e., Tikka Shooters | Dedicated To Tikka Owners And Their Passion!

    They (browning) say for the 7rem 2014 was last year of catalogue, so you may be able to find one yet if you look a bit.

    Tikka T3 Lite Stainless-- these guys also make a ss lefty 7rem...

    you aren't going to get a current production remmy in a ss action; they were stopped a few years ago. sps and cdl are your current choices. I want another lh lss 300win myself (sold mine for earnest $ when I bought a house), but that's for another thread and another day.
