    I've not seen or heard any mention of one. I reckon the manufacturers don't want to admit us lefties exist. Much like all the other stuff in this right handed world. The ones that I've shot,in the .17,(rh of course)were the Marlin and Ruger. I was please with accuracy of both. Maybe Savage will come up with one to keep up with their centerfire rifles.

    Savage has been making LH rimfires since they bought out Lakefield.

    93R17-GLV - your 17HMR
    MARK II-GL - your 22lr
    MARK II-GLY - your YOUTH 22lr
    93GL - your 22mag

    Grimel,
    thanks for the correction and the direction. I've been putting off buyng a leftie gun because I didn't know if I'd like one. This may be a less expensive way to experiment.

    Thanks again,
    HWD

    You are welcome. We have to stick together. Buy it you'll like it. They give you a lot of advantages.

    If you want a cheap way to experiment, buy a Savage. A barrel nut wrench, vise, clamp blocks (2x4 - padded), head space go & no-go guages - roughly $80. Then buy a new barrell. Swap yourself. Adams & Bennet barrels run $150. If you get a set of gauges 1 works for a give case family (i.e. 308 works for 243, 260, 7mm-08, 308, and 358).

    I just bought a Savage 93, left hand and in 17 HMR. Really like this gun. Can't beat the accutrigger and is a tack driver to boot.

    Ive owned my modle 93 now for 3 years and other than my carry gun, its the gun I shoot the most. I know for a fact that in the first year I spent more on the ammo than the rifle it self. I started out with a Nikon 4x pro and within a month I swaped it for a 3x9 40mm. This setup is perfect for working on the michanics of shooting for my big game rifles. I can shoot it all day, enjoy every shot and it drives tacks out beyond 100 yds. I know Ive put 2500 rounds through this rifle and it shows no signs of giving out. Put on on your christmas list dude, every lefty should have one.

    I just joined the forum today and would like to say that Browning is making their highly accurate T-bolt in .22LR, .22WMR and .17HMR left hand models. Believe me, you won't be dissapointed with the fit and finish.
