Does it exist ? Marlin xt-22 left hand ?



Log in to see fewer ads
Been looking..does not seem to exist.
Thinking about a Marlin xt-22 tube feed.
Left handed.
A righty would work.. long as it doesn't have the cheek swell. On the stock.
...
And the advertisement... Says palm swell.
Only for right handers ?

Left hand guys.. tell me what you think ?

Never have been any left handed XT's that I know of.

Probably need to get a Savage, or try and find a left handed CZ

My left handed Grandson shoot's all my right handed Marlin bolts (XT, 981T, 981TS, 25N) without any problems.

Adapt & overcome !

Might have to look for an older one for a tube mag.

I would suggest buying a RH example, and rasping off any offensive wood from the butt and/or pistol grip (refinishing the stock, of course).

I don't remember any left hand Marlins. But Remington made a lefty version in their 580 series. That would be a 582 tube feed. Mossberg also made a couple leftys way back. I think one was a tube feed. I found a mag fed Mossberg M43L target rifle for my son. They are out there but hard to find and expensive. Good luck

That's exactly what I did to a brand new synthetic remington stock..
Used my orbit grinder to get rid of the cheek pad.
I'm going to use it left handed now.

Well... Like they say.. adapt and overcome..
Since I lost alot of my vision in my right eye .
I have to go lefty.
I'm just going to pretend it's a single shot.
A bolt action single shot.. I'm S.L.O.W..
But it can be done.

Just keep shooting buckweet and you will get faster trust me. (a lefty) The dominant eye switch over is what takes longest for me.

Ya know thats true. I'm R/R but when I had rotator cuff surgery on my R shoulder I wasn't going to waste all that time off so I shot left handed off the bench. With scopes and peep sights no problem. Felt funny at first but I was comfortale with it by the time my shoulder healed. My son is all mixed up. Right hand Left eye. We didn't know it until about 6 or 7. So he shoots long guns left but handgun right. When he shot in a BSA Venture Crew dedicated to hand guns he was the top shooter out of 20 or so young men and impressed the instructors.
