McMillian A-5 Stock question

Can an A-5 be used left handed? I mean as readily as right handed?

I don't see why not. www.mcmfamily.com
Why not see if they make left handed A5's, I bet they do.

Re: McMillian A-5 Stock question

The only difference in the left or right hand would be the bolt handle and safety cutout. Everything from the trigger back is symmetrical, so if you shoot a right handed action left handed it will work the same. Mine is fixed and non adjustable. The adjustable options may be different.

I donít understand why anyone would want to shoot backwards though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Situation is I have a right handed REM action and due to the ol' right eye seeing crooked (macular degeneration) I now shoot left handed.

Thus whatever I do with that action its gotta fit in a right handed stock and be shot lefty.

Just trying to figure the options.

Thanks for responding

I shoot a 300 wsm right handed action with a a5 stock and it is no problem. I bought a left handed rifle,tryed it a couple of times and sold it, just to used to the right handed action. Could never seem to find the bolt.
