    Left handed browning xbolts

    Hi Everyone, just wondering if any one knows how to get hold of lefthanded browning xbolts in stainless? I see on Brownings website they now make them in wooded stainless and laminated stainless. None in nz and can't find any online! Any tips for buying overseas etc? Any info will be greatly appreciated.

    Warm barrels.

    I think Alan at h&F Whakatane has a x bolt leftie in stock , he is the man as far as x bolts go he might be able to source something for you.

    Ok thanks a lot, hard work being a leftie these days. Not a lot of options out there.

    Geez way better than it was even 3 years ago! Have slowly converted all of my rifle collection to left hand.

    Bronco's Sports (Tauranga) has probably one of the biggest new Browning rifle selection in NZ. Worth giving them a call.

    doubt you will find a left hand browning X bolt in stainless steel in NZ. Have to get one in by special order at 12mths wait.

    Hmm...I see the Browning US website is now listing both short and ling actions in left hand stainless WOW. They only ever brought the a-bolt stainless steel left hand out to NZ in long actions.

    Here's a wood blued one:

    Plenty more on the Bronco's Website: Bolt-Action
    Pretty sure they have a couple of left handed 'White Gold' stainless/wood options too.

    If you don't have a choice, my experience is that the blued xbolts are pretty good as far as rust goes. I've got one and its the best blued American rifle I have had.

    That's because, due to the over the top politically correct policies of the two previous labour governments, left handers are slowly but surely being recognised as people.

    All far to rushed I reckon.
