Default Any good rilfes I should look at that have LH bolts available?

I was at Gander Mtn. today when I was reminded that my left eye is still dominant and that it is far more comfortable for me to aim/point a gun when holding it left handed. However, it appears they don't make the Tikka with a LH bolt, so I gotta reconsider what I'm looking at. Any suggestions?

Actually the tikka t-3 is available in left hand.

Awesome! I've got a few months before I'm buying my rifle this spring, so hopefully it'll be available in 7mm-08 by then.

I picked up a Remington 700 BDL in 30.06 lefty for my first rifle this season. Got my first deer the other day. A 7 Pt. Hopefully I get a monster in its sights one day.

Look at the savage rifles. They have lots of LH models in alot of calibers. They're notoriously accurate and competively priced. They aren't for everyone though because they'll never win a beauty contest.

At the Gander Mtn. I went to they didn't have any LH Savages, but I was looking at them anyways when I was comparing the scope picture with each eye. Thing is, I'd like to get a rifle that had a cheekpiece on the stock. There was a LH BDL there, one of a grand total of two LH rifles they had there. That was a bit expensive, but nice.

The Gander Mountain I go to is in Washington, PA. The last time I was there they had a whole rack of LH rifles. They will transfer from one store to another. I was goint to buy a rifle from them but did not. I noticed a sign they had, they said they charged to mount a scope. I asked if I bought the scope and the rifle there would they mount it without a charge. They said no, I would have to pay. So I said good by, I went and bought a new rifle that day at Ace's guns in Washington, PA.

The funny thing is that I would not let them mount my scope anyway. I like to do it myself. I trained some sales people in Jersey, there are alot of nice gunshops up there. You should not have a problem finding rifles to look at. Tom.
