Simple question me thinks, yes or no? Theoben do a l/h stock, but I haven't come across a l/h action.:confused:

Ive seen one that has been done but it was a custom jobbie.

Baz is the man to ask as it belonged to me a member of his old club.

I've had mine done by Airtech, but it's a relatively simple job for any machinist - it's just worrying to start cutting lumps out of your pride and joy.

1. Mill bolt slot on left hand side.
2. Machine internal clearance to allow bolt dog to rotate the other way.
3. Modify bolt with threaded hole for handle on the other side (it's actually easier to make a new bolt).
4. Make new left hand bolt gate and a blanking piece for the right hand bolt slot.

And finally, have you any pics?
