Left Handed Rifle

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I'm having real trouble locating a pretty standard medium weight left handed rifle here in Wales or the South West area for our club - we only have 1 with 6 left handed shooters this year. We only need something cheap - nothing more than £250-£300 max.

 

I've been looking for about 2 months now to no avail.

 

Any contacts would be greatly appreciated!

Can you not just get a left handed stock for a right handed gun ? Excuse my ignorance there may be other technical problems that I don't know of - I'm a pistol shooter ;) .

Look under rifles, martini and bolt action, left handed, .22 and you will find a BSA Martini for £228 with some others above your price limit.

This is possible with a bolt handle adapter so that the bolt can be operated left handed but where you get them from I don't know

I believe they're most commonly found in the back of old range armoury cupboards.

That solution is still not ideal as the loading port is cut on the wrong side for a left hander. I think the stock needs to get chopped a bit, and even then the crossunder bit can get caught on some other piece of kit like your sling depending on your position.

 

Best to find a proper Lefty I reckon.
