Rifle help
 
Im in the market for an accurate, relatively inexpensive rifle. I really love the style of the cz 527 fs. The full length stock makes that gun look great. But there is a problem. I am a lefty. I already contacted cz and they cant help me without charging an extra $600. So I was wondering if anyone knows about a similar rifle for leftys or has any advice. I would prefer .223. Anything helps though. Thanks

If I remember correctly the CZ is bolt action and magazine fed. Off the top of my head I can't think of anything similar that's inexpensive.

Look into savages.

My first thought was Savage as well, but I don't think they make a mag fed bolt gun.

Although it's semi-auto, a 580 series Mini 14 could fit the bill. Not as accurate as the CZ, but an excellent all around rifle.

Not a drop out box mag but they do make blind box mags w drop out floor plates. Ya a mini would work....if he doesn't mind brass hittin him in the face

Very very true. I got a wild hair up my butt one day and start jackin w a mini just to see EXACTLY how far I get on to launch brass. In the end I was gettin it to fling the 3rd one out of a 3 shot rapid fire burst to go bout 15 yards. I gave up bout then. It proved my theory-you can turn the brass from one into a good weapon in itself;)

Mossberg has a detachable mag. Bolt action .223. There around $600-700.

Savage,Remington,Browning,Tikka,Ruger all make LH rifles. But I don't think you'll find anyone that offers a LH with a Mannlicher style stock.
If you like that CZ,I'd just buy it.You won't have any problem shooting it LH,the buttstock is an Ambidextrous design,only the action is right handed.
