    Aa tx200 true left handed outfit beech stock

    I have been offered an aa tx200 true left handed hc .22 with mod sling studs etc. Shoots superbly and at a good price, problem is i am right handed. Wondering if i can re profile the cheek roll over and make up a piece to make it suitable for a r.h. Or just see if i can swap it for a right hand stock & cut out a slot for the loading port. Any of you out there got any suggestions ?? Mickey

    Hi, I am left handed shooter, all my collector/classics are right handed including my TX200 mk3 walnut HC. I don't have a problem, maybe one gets used to it. No, I am not looking for a swap!

    When I was a kid at school, I could write both left and right handed, played cricket and fished both handed, but, have morphed to become more dominant right handed with many things! Curious or what?

    All the best....

    LH action just drops in to a RH stock and no need to recess the stock unless it really bugs you that the port opening drops a few mm behind the top line of the stock.
    Assuming mk2 or 3 action and stocks, as mk1 stock won’t have the ABT cutout on the right.

    Seems like a lot of pissing about rather than just wait for a RH one.

    LH stock is an easy sale, maybe even an easy swap. Lots of lefties want one, and will gladly pay for it.

    I have a LH TX200 action in a RH stock, by choice.

    When shooting from a bench, it is much easier to cock with the right, and load with the left (from the left).

    I'd suggest trying it with RH stock before considering selling it.

    yeah, exactly... I guess that's the one advantage of the HWs, they have a deeper rebate on both sides

    a mk1 l/h would be the holy grail of stocks

    I think the best thing to do is is to let me buy it whilst you search for a "proper" right handed jobby

    Sure someone has a nice right handed stock somewhere for you and swap the action over.

    Something like this early Custom Stocks example????🤣🤣. https://imgur.com/a/O6PBv2V

    Some time ago I ‘accidentally’ bought a brace of AA’s, which included a lefty Mk1 .177 TX in extremely good condition. Tried my hardest to shoot it in that orientation but to no avail, so picked up a Mk3 RH stock which the action now sits in and shoots lovely. 😊. I keep contemplating having a lefty actioned righty stock made for it but there’s always something else to spend the money on 😂.
    All help, advice and wrist slaps gratefully received.
    Most sales open to swaps for older BSA’s, projects and or incomplete/bits. Currently quietly developing a hankering for a nice S10 BBK………..
