    I'd heard that left hand bolt Tikka's were on sale at one of the auction websites. Supposed to be at really good prices too. So, I did a little research & found the shop: Tanner's, in Jamison PA. I called, gave the credit card number & all was set. Or so I thought.

    Come to find out, there was a minor C-C problem, which was easily cleared up. The total of the charge was $399.99, the gun was supposed to cost $395.00, plus S&H, a four dollar discrepancy, right? But whoa! No, the whole cost was $399.00 delivered!! The price of the gun was $379.00, with S&H of $20.00.

    Yeah, the lefies win one for once. And as far as I know, you can too. Fellow lefties, the word is now out. Go get 'em!!

    What caliber did you get? What model/calibers do they stock?

    As far as calibers go it looks like they have .270, 30-06, 300WSM, and 270WSM in the T3 Lite LH model for the 379.00 price.
    As of 10 minutes ago they have one less 30-06 :D Now I have to decide on a scope. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for the heads-up, CB900F ;)

    I'm left handed, but I learned to shoot right handed.

    Oh yeah, all kinds of suggestions, but to be practical about the subject, I have to ask the following question: What's the budget?

    I've bought, sold, and traded, a fair amount of glass over the years. I'll always try to suggest something that I have personal experience with. But, I've got a pretty wide range of cost on the stuff too.

    Great price! I want to buy but I'm on vacation at the moment and already spending lots of money = |

    Sorry CB900, I know that was a pretty broad question.
    How about the best 3-9x40 scope for 250.00 or less? I think something in that neighborhood should suit my needs.

    I am jealous... I wanted one... a nice T-3 Tactical in .300 WM but changed my mind when I saw a price tag of 1900 Euros... :eek:

    XT: Best under $250 3-9x? Leupold VXII. Found mine like new used for $150, but to be fair that's kinda a steal.

    As far as left handed rifles, as soon as I find a left handed Savage 16 action I will build my first. Other than that my only concession ever to my correct handedness has been ambi safties on my 1911s. Wouldn't touch a left-handed AR, I want to be able to find spare bolt carrier group pieces anywhere.

    Put a Leupold 3X9 on my LH 30-06 over 25 years ago, so far no call to change it, doubt I ever will.

    OK, here goes. I recently put a Leupold VXII 3-9X 40mm on a coyote gun I have. It replaced a 1995 vintage Weaver V-9. This is not the only Leupold I've had, but it is the first of the VX series rather than the older Vari-X series. It is an excellent value for the dollar. I'm very satisfied with it.

    However, I also have a Weaver Grand Slam 3.5-10X on a .30-06 that is a very fine value too. The current Natchez catalog shows that scope in black matte at $249.99

    The Leupold is above your budget figure, has a lifetime warranty, and has no flies on it. The Weaver is at your budget, also has fine glass, and does not have the warranty. Shipping is gonna be the same for either, but does add cost. How hard is your budget?

    Somebody here is eventually going to suggest the Burris. I've had two scopes & some other Burris product. With one, what is to me -rare- exception, I've had nothing but problems with Burris products. I literally gave one scope away. And I happen to know that the current owner is dissatisfied with it. The gunsmith that bedded his gun said: "Jeez that scope sucks". I'd sent it in for warranty & was told that all was within spec. My .02, you can do better elsewhere.

    Nikon has some of the best glass at the most reasonable price for it, in the world IMHO. However, the Buckmasters scopes simply aren't Monarchs. But, the 3-9X matte 40mm is $199.95 at Natchez. This gets you the scope and shipping under budget, with excellent bang for the buck as it were, but lacking the Leupold warranty.

    Finally, above budget, is the Zeiss Conquest 3-9X. I have the 3.5-10X mil-dot on another gun, not this particular scope. The Zeiss 3-9X will retail right at $400.00. The clarity & resolution are simply outstanding, & all reports are that the quality holds right across the line.

    Hope this helps, 900F
