If I have to, I will - just seeing if there is something out there that I am unaware of.
If you really want to get him a left-handed rifle, there are several to choose from, but I don't have any personal experience with any of them. A quick internet search will turn up several viable options.
You might as well go ahead and get your son used to right-handed guns so he will be able to shoot anything, anywhere he goes. As he learns how to operate them correctly "wrong-handed", he will reach a point where he doesn't even notice it anymore. I don't.
Then again, maybe I don't know what I'm missing; but it's not looking for backwards parts when something breaks.
That's what "I" had to do as a kid... Then when i was in my 20's i bought myself a LH rifle. BOY, did i ever see how much i had been handicaped using a RH bolt all those years.
Then again, i'm a hunter and i like everything to be "right" to give myself every advantage. I've hunted dangerous game a lot, and it would have helped if i had learned the "right way" to use a bolt action rifle, in the first place.
If i had a L Handed kid, the last thing i would do is stick that kid with a RH bolt gun.
There are, or were some LH bolt action youth single shot 22's made, but the brand escapes me right now. I looked them up a year or so ago... Savage MAY have a LH youth rifle too?
Try using a pair of righty-scissors Lefty for anyone who says otherwise.
I think the CZ 452 is the best lefty .22lr bolt action; discontinued, but you can still find them.
Go find a LGS who buys from Ellett I just checked and they have plenty on stock of three different LH savage youth models.
I work the bolt with my right hand. The only issue I have is that I have to be careful not to scrape my left thumb with the bolt if the rifle has a straight comb.
You mean "made" them, but not any longer...
NO, said he checked Savage they don`t have any thing.................
And yet, here is one. Several people having suggested Savage, this should come as no surprise....

Did you read my OP? Looking for one dressed in camo and stainless.
Show me where savage makes that....
A shiny rifle in camo, kind of a oxymoron if you ask me..............
...also listed on impactguns.com
It is for a 6 year old boy....
Yeah, I read it. I am well aware I could have a 'smith cut the stock, dip it, HC the metal and give it a 1.5# trigger. I was asking about where to BUY ONE.
Sorry I asked where to find such a rifle that rivals hen teeth in availability.
The Savage 93 has a wood stock that you can cut down for now, and then add spacers to it as he grows up.
I even found a new Stag Arms Ar-15 in a completely left hand design. It actually has a left hand BCG and right side ejection port, plus the forward assist.
Don't give up hope, they're available.
BiMart keeps them in stock, and so does Walmart. You can order them thru Walmarts gun counter. Many gun owners don't know it, but Walmart is the largest gun seller in the world. You can get their gun catalog online and order any gun in it that's legal where you live.
The CZ 452 Left Hand models are still in production along with at least couple of the 452 right-hand models such as the Trainer and Ultra Lux. Here's my (youngest son's) 2013-proofed LH American.
Unfortunately there isn't a Left Handed Scout (the youth-scale 452)
I'm not aware of any manufacturer with a youth rifle in lefty with camo/SS combination, sorry. Heck, just the lefty part is hard to find.
That would be big news, considering that lots of folks are searching for the LAST of the LH 452's and having a hard time finding them. IF they were still makeing them, how come no one has them in stock and no one on Rim Fire Central knows about it?? At least i haven't seen it there...
