Looking for a good shooting lefty 22, not much option out there, thinking about the Savage mk11 gl but was hoping to get some opinions here first.

I have two left hand Savage MkII rifles and love them. Though mine both are the heavy varmint barrel versions. One is an older MkII (pre accurate-trigger) in 17m2 and the other is newer E receiver MkII in 22lr. I have no complaints with any of my Savage rifles.

The only downside to the MkII seems to be the magazine. Some people have had problems and others haven't. My magazines haven't had any issues.

Savage also makes their B-22 in left hand with rotary magazine. The B-22 only comes with a synthetic stock though. I suggest reading through the Savage sub forum for more info on the MkII and B-22.

CZ also makes a good left hand 22 rifle. Others can tell you about them.

I love my coopers, nothing else comes close. Anschutz is a distant second

There is a sticky at the top of this forum with an extensive list of all the LH guns. As far as LH 22s, Savage, CZ, Anschutz, Cooper, NULA, Browning old and new T-Bolt, soem older model Remingtons, Lithgow are about the only easy to find options. They all shoot good as far as hunting or target shooting, just depends on how fancy and pretty you like your guns. If you want to shoot competition then we are talking a whole other discussion.

As a southpaw myself, I find shooting rt hand bolt actions rifles to be more efficient and faster as I can maintain my cheek weld , grip, and sight picture while operating the bolt with my right hand. The only thing I look for or pass on are rifle stocks, if they are Monte Carlo style I pass as some of them have a lip to carry over the cheek weld area.

If off a tripod, I'm right with you!

For anything else, I prefer my Winchester 1885 underlever single-shot. Totally ambidextrous, and wonderfully accurate.

I have done that for years with my hunting rifles, just makes it easier to sell them, I never owned a left handed 22lr so I thought that would be the way to go, NRL22 and other 22lr competitions is what I plan on using it for.

Thanks for all the info guys.

I have a casual shooting buddy who is a lefty,,,

I have a casual shooting buddy who is a lefty,,,
One day as he was griping about the lack of lefty guns,,,
I made the comment like "Oh c'mon, how hard is it to shoot right-handed."

He didn't say a word,,,
He just handed me his left-handed Savage,,,
Then he bet me that I would get sick of it after 50 rounds.

He was wrong about that,,,
I was sick of it after one magazine.

Never again will I roll my eyes at a lefty complaining about right hand rifles.

I'm R-handed and shoot that way but for rimfires I much prefer L-handed rifles.

I found both of my left handed 452s on Armslist for excellent prices inside of a month. I would check there.20200218_192224_1582306616544.jpg

If your serious about NRL check out Vudoo, Rem 700 bedding pattern so lots of stock choices. Spendy but probably the best in that field right now. For something less niche specific and a whole lot cheaper a CZ452 is hard to beat for value and chance for accuracy at an economical price. Aside from my custom guns I'd rate my factory guns in the following order for accuracy. Cooper, ULA, Anschutz, CZ, T Bolt (old), T Bolt (new).

I have an ULA lefty single shot, if my eyes were still decent Id order a Vudoo without a second thought.

As a lefty with the use of one hand... am comfy with higher end 10/22's for benchrest and egg challenges. Have just configured a 10/22 bullpup for steel plate challenges one-handed.
