Does Tikka make a lefty 223 in a Sporter style configuration? Prefer stainless but blued would be a second choice, can't seem to find any online.

They do but apparently they make them in batches separated by many moons.

About 5-6 weeks ago I was looking for a left hand T3x stainless Lite in .223 with a 1:8" twist and none were to be found. That's the same situation when I first looked for one a couple of years ago. Nada nada for several months, then within the space of a week all of the on-line dealers had them. Bought one and it came with a 1:10" twist shocked whereas before they had been 1:8. Still shoots great but only up to 68-69 grain bullets so would like to get another 8" to try the longer 75-88 grain bullets.


Gunnery, gunnery, gunnery.
Hit the target, all else is twaddle!

Thanks Jim,
A stainless lite would be perfect. 1-10 wouldnt bother me either as this rifle will just sit in the bedroom as it waits for a coyote to appear across our lake,
I checked Whitakers, Eurooptics, Buds and Gunbrokers and struck out.

I know its not what your asking but there are some Ruger Gunsite Scouts in lefthand on Gunbroker for $499.00 I can't link the ad but this is the description:

Ruger 77 Gunsite Scout 5.56 223 LH Left Hand 6827

Maybe it will help someone.

I appreciate the lead on the Ruger, but that has to be the ugliest .223 I ever seen in my life

There is a used stainless on Gunbroker now. Comes with a half assed scope and mounts but you could always cash out on those. $599 or best offer. Just search "Tikka left 223" on Gunbroker

Ken,
I checked it out. Action looks a little rough on the close up photos. That makes me question the rest of the rifle. I'll wait for something better.
Thanks
Randy

That’s the same impression I got, Randy. Best to wait a while,.

I agree, it's a ugly SOB.
