    One for the lefties on TM - $1 auction!

    Just saw this on TM. Obviously came into the country as a defective gun since the factory put the bolt in the wrong way round and upside down so they are selling it cheap - $1 auction.
    Thought the cross wired lefties might be interested??

    I might have been interested if it weren't in the wrong island.

    Currently I shoot left handed on right handed rifles.
    Easy enough to do as look as the stock is reasonably neutrally shaped.

    Have you tried a proper left hand rifle?

    No need, right hand action works okay for me.
    Also I share with a right hand shooter.

    If you have shot regularly left handed with right handed rifles don't try and change.

    Watch top snipers shoot, never take the trigger hand off the rifle.

    Same with an AK, no need to take the hand off the pistol grip while changing out the mag and cycling the action. There are a few other rifles like that...

    Yes best not to try a left hand rifle.
