    What caliber are you looking for?

    I'm a Savage fan so naturally I'm going to recommend a Savage. You can build one for cheaper than a Sendero.

    My 338 Edge is built on a LH Savage. It has a 32" fluted McGowan barrel, Rifle Basix Sav-2 trigger, and a Stockade Pdog stock.

    I have less than $1000 in the rifle.

    Call their custom shop if the off the shelf stuff isnt fancy enough for you.

    This is my 300 Rummy, you will recognize the laminated stock as being from Rem M700 LSS LH, I had it kicking around the back of my vault, picked up a donor M700LH 7mm RM rifle, had it blue printed, the bbl is a 30" Benchmark, 1:12. seems to handle the 208gr AMAX's just fine.

    Have Fun. Don

    Here I took a Gemsback at a little over 600 yards. Same trip I shot a baboon at 1456 yards. It has killed critters on 3 continents and has never failed.

    Hands down Weatherby mark V, I have three of them and had many other production LH, no match to the markV. Take a good look at the 30-378

    Well, is starting from scratch an option for you? If so, buy the components you want and let a gunsmith build you a tack-driver. The Stiller Predator is a good action to start with. I think my wait time on both of my LH was about 6 weeks or less. Actually, one was about a 2 week wait, the other about 8 weeks now that I think about it.

    Or are you only looking for factory rifles?

    Derek is correct. I would have been money ahead if I had done my build on a steller. By chosing a customer action your rifle smith will not have to spend time accurizing a factory action. My next build will do exactly as Derek has recomended.

    +1 on the after martket action. Kirby is building a left handed 300WSM for me right now on a Borden Alpine Magnum action. The wait is killing me but I'm sure it will be well worth the it!!!!!!!!!!!!! I initially planned on using a 700 donor action for the build but as Kirby explained it...if i added a few hundred dollars to the cost of reworking the donor action I could get a brand new action that would be far better in the long run.


    Kirby, PLEEEEASE HURRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If your heart is set on a LH Sendero, there are some out there. I remember several years ago I was looking for one in a 300 RUM. I found 2-3 7mm magnum LH Senderos on Gun Broker. I haven't seen on listed for sale in years though.

    It's a cool gun, but probably not one I want to hike around the mountains with!
