    LEFTY -Tikka T3 7mm Remington Magnum (full package) and a real shooter!

    Hi All,

    Are you a lefty looking for sub-half MOA / tops rifle that has had all the work done for you just to pick up and start shooting?

    I’m reluctantly letting go my Lefty 7 Rem Mag, what I’d call a precision Tikka built up over the last few years and has done the deed with surgical precision! As I head into the world of shooting with a bench rest gun as my long ranger…

    I know mate!!! She's a screamer. Did you watch the video on youtube - even though the picture quality lets it down - the commentary is hilarious!!! My voice is the first one the two others were spotting!!

    Yeah buts there's a couple of us lefties on here like @223nut - so hopefully it appeals!

    Damn you Carpe Diem, why did you have to go and post this.

    I am saving for a service rifle optic and now I have been back to this thread 4 times already...

    You could take the S3 FFP, as well... and that way you'd be saving on a optic at the same time! whats the maximum magnification for service rifle allowable??
    I also have a s-tac 3-16 in moar-2 and they're pretty good value for money too...

    Yep Happy there aren't that many good left hand drives out there for the left eye dominants, and would make a good crossover tops/ long range rig for someone taking shots to decent ranges or wanting to play with gongs.

    As says in the advertisment take the rifle and decide what extras you want or a very attractive package price.

    For the 162 ELD-m just scraping the std magazine length is bang on for this - I'll do a proper COAL for you tomorrow when I can find my micrometer...

    @Echo - Coal for the 7mm Rem Mag I have set up is 3.438" or 87.33mm

    I took a spare piece of brass and once i got it to this length and was happy with the results crimped a projectile in the end at the desired length (no primer or powder)
    This then meant it was ready for me to use as a dummy round to reset the seating dies at easily...



    Hope that helps.

    Geeez, Would have thought that there would have been a few more lefties out there that would have jumped at this! Hmmmmmm.

    Let me know if there is any interest in the above package or just the rifle set up even if it isn't right now! @ebf!

    Time wise I'm moving to a new rig and although I need some time to build and settle into it - maybe I still have a wee bit of time up my sleeve if that helps you forum-ites...but I'd need to know and get a commitment to buy from you..

    Otherwise I'll be increasing the price and popping on Trade Me... Probably around in time for the weekend!
    So if you are interested let me know!
