Default Southpaw issue......

Currently looking at the Remington XCR II and the new Winchester 70 stainless/synthetic.
Only "problem" is, I'm left handed and these rifles are only made in right handed models.
So my question is, are there any lefty's out there that found their "perfect" rifle a right handed bolt model?
I've looked all over for an original Remington XCR (which was made in left hand models) with zero luck. GunBroker, Guns America....nothing.
Very Frustrating

I'm a lefty and I would buy a lefthand rifle. Remington offers a few lefty's that are just as good as the XCR. Whinchester seems to have dropped lefthand rifles.
Savage, Weatherby,Tikka,Browning,Ruger all make lefthanded guns and in the long run you'd be better of buying a lefthanded rifle.

I'd go with a left handed rifle as well. Savage weather warrior would be a good place to start if you want a stainless/synthetic.

I was fortunate to get one of the XCR rifles in left hand .30-06 a couple of years ago. I also just got a lefty Ruger Hawkey and it shoots well too. Seems to be more choices of caliber with Ruger and Savage.
