Left Handed Bolt Guns?

Hello,



I'm wondering if anyone makes a left-handed bolt action centerfire rifle, preferably with a Mauser action, outfitted with iron sights.



I'd prefer a short action -- .308, .223, etc -- and a decent price.



The usual suspects such as Savage and Ruger do not list iron sight models, and Remington only lists long actions.



Thanks,



Josh

Josh check with the CZ stuff, believe they are now offering left handed bolt guns. Other than that its hit the trade papers and rifle forums for stuff.

The new Ruger Gunsite Scout is slated to come out in a left handed version from what I have heard.

Biker,



That would be awesome. Really like the Ruger, but don't plan to hang things off of it.



I'm looking at a good, rugged bolt gun as an alternative to an AR. I was actually thinking that a Mosin-Nagant M38 would be about perfect if it had a bent bolt on the left side.



Thanks!



Josh

Left Handed Bolt Guns?

Josh,



I've been shooting left handed all my life and have to adimit that in a lifetime of having to shoot right handed rifles both hunting and in the military that I wouldn't really know how to shoot a left handed bolt gun. Another alternative might be just use a right handed lightweight bolt gun. I've got several from a .22 up to a 7X57 Mauser and have found that I can support the gun with a 20 inch or shorter barrel by gripping the stock with my shooting (left) hand and working the bolt with my right hand. If the rifle is supported (bipod, tree limb, etc.) should be no trouble at all. I believe you may not have as much trouble finding a rifle if you consider this approach.

I've heard the same, and that they tend to be accomodating.
