Mine is my MRC XAR that's going back to the factory for a refund. According to the rep they only made 50 of them and I don't know how many of the 50 were LH.

Right now my rarest LH rifle is an early '90s Win M70 SS/Walnut in .300WM.. I bought it new, circa '92.. It has less than 100 rounds down the bore.. I don't use it.. I need to sell it.. It might be on Gunbroker by early next week... Wish I had the original box, but like a moron I got rid of it... Dang.

Even though I'm LH I have used RH rifles all my life and a LH action is just really, really strange.. FWIW..

Redneck, do you reach over for the bolt or shoot right handed? I'm left eye dominant and made the switch to shooting left handed. Shot right handed when young but with rifles that kicked less and had lower combs. First time I tried that with a bolt action 30-06 with a higher comb, I didn't like it so much so made the switch. Always wanted a M70, but waited too long to easily find any LH classics in 30-06. So I ended up with a LH 300 WSM fwt which were easier to find after New Haven folded. One of these days I'll get around to mounting a scope and using it.

Incorrect. Left-handed Model 70s weren't introduced until 1997 and the stainless versions were made in 1997 ONLY.

Probably my most common lefty rifle. 700 BDL in 7mm mag, tuned by Hill Country Rifles. It also has a Williams steel guard and floorplate that really makes for a nice upgrade over the Remington pot metal alloy.

That's a great looking 280.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
