    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.

    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 don’t understand why anyone would want to shoot backwards though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    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.
