I'd like to get a rifle/carbine in .22 Hornet but, since I'm a southpaw, I don't want to work a "rightie" bolt action, despite all the advantages they can offer.
Are there any rifles in .22 Hornet available in pump action or lever action?

I have never heard or seen any, try a single shot.

No, not that I can think of.
Browning did make a run of Model 65 lever-actions in .218 Bee, and there are still some to be found.
Marlin also made some in .218 Bee.
There are, or have been a wide varity of single-shots made in .22 Hornet that might serve you well left-handed.
Ruger #1 and #3, Tompson-Center Contender, Winchester & Browning Low-Wall, etc.

The Little Sharps looks fun, and it's relatively ambidextrous.

Keep in mind that either a pump or a lever just might toss the empty case right at your face when you eject it. The single shots might be the best way to go.

I'm still waiting for Ruger to make a 96-22H!
They make a great bolt action 22 hornet and it seems it would be VERY simple to chamber the 96 in the Hornet.

If you check on Rimfirecentral they have a left handed forum. In it there is a sticky that lists firearms and accessories that are made for southpaws. As I recall they are not limited to rimfire firearms. Maybe something on there will help.
