Left hand bolt, right hand shooter

Wed Nov 04, 2020 8:26 pm

Hi guys, is there any of you out there that are right handed but use a left hand bolt? It's something I'm considering doing to give it a try, would be keen to know if any of you have tried it and opinions on the matter.

Do you have a two piece bolt or three piece. A little heat with a hair dryer will separate them. Once separated you will be able to configure them to your cackhanded ways

Did I mention that I'm the only one to have attended EVERY meet since we started

I’m left handed and I have 2 right handed daystate airwolves and a left handed AA s400. I also have a right handed browning t bolt 17HMR and a left handed Anchutz 22 and don’t find any of them more difficult/easier to shoot. I guess it might be different if I wanted to rapid fire but that isn’t usually required!

Try it out. You might not find it a problem.
