    WTB Left Hand Centrefire 7-08/308/270/7mag etc

    Hi guys,

    Have a mate who's left handed and wants to buy a rifle so he can get back into hunting.

    Looking for a common calibre, not too bothered about which one - but bigger than a 243.

    Wants it to be tidy, looking to spend up to $1500 for a package, less if possible.

    Just seeing whats out there before he goes and buys new etc.

    Thanks
    Josh.

    Check my WTS Winchester M88 .308 might suit you
    Hunting is relaxing just like Yoga except I get to kill something.
    If it Flies it dies and if it hops it drops.

    +1 for lever actions haven't used or owned one but wanting to rectify that in the future. Means anyone can use it if he goes hunting with someone else

    Its a pain in the ass alright,being a leftie.
    Spent a lot of my life using lever actions or right handed rifles,then bought my first full left handed rifle and Wow the difference in comfort and 'just feeling right" .(though I will be keeping my cutdown suppressed savage 99 in 300 savage).

    So many option if you look overseas for lefties,in nz theres not that many options especially if you don't want a mainstream caliber.

    I have a mint Rem 700 LH SS ex 300 Rum action, trigger & stock if some ones after a LH big banger

    It won't be cheap though because they are rarer than Rem 700 Titanium LA's....
