If you plan on painting it anyway a right handed stock is an easy modification. Just fill in the right side bolt slot and file the slot for the bolt on the left side.
For that matter a laminent stock will work too? This old 110 got the bolt filed on the left side and painted...Been a good shooter through the years

I have thought about doing that (modifying a RH stock) but I'm afraid I'll chip out the filling. Would prefer just buying a LH stock than being afraid to have the part chip or break out.

For this rifle I would prefer a composite over laminate because it's lighter and scratches aren't as visable on it.

Geargrinder, what action is that? Looks a bit like a savage, which is exactly what I have, LH long action SS, any suggestions on a color guys? Want something a little more special than the normal black stock.

Thanks,
Oliver
It is a Savage action with a SSS tactical bolt handle. Started as a 112 BVSS. It's now a 300WSM with a Krieger barrel in a plastic Savage stock.

That stock is now on my 110 Long/Short action 338 Edge.
