Default Snagged another great deal

My buddy that owns the local gun shop came by the house a couple days ago,to return my dolly that he borrowed to move a safe.
He said-Hey,I got another Savage for you. I said-Thanks,Like I need another one.
Anyway,he said someone brought in a Savage 12 FLV in .308,and he bought it.He knows I shoot Left Handed,and usually will buy any that come his way.

The 12 FLV is a 26"heavy barreled,polished blued finish,with a LH action,and the Accutrigger.It also has a synthetic stock,but it is just a throw a way piece of plastic,they are very flimsy,and not very stable to shoot off of with a bipod.I always replace them with an aftermarket stock.

I went to the shop and picked it up today,It also had a Bushnell Banner 3x9 scope,with Weaver rings and 2 pc bases on it.
I took the scope and rings off at the shop and sold them to a customer there for $20.
This rifle hasn't been shot much,it looks brand new,with an excellent bore.The bolt face is spotless.

When I got it home,I took it out of the stock and cleaned everything up,adjusted the Accutrigger to my liking,and then ran a few patches thru the bore.A couple wet ones,and around 8 dry,it was clean.
I then mounted a Redfield 3-12x44 scope,and some Leupold rings that I had in a box out in the shop,and bore sighted the scope.

Paid $360 for it -$20 for selling the scope = $340 for what should be a Tack driving rifle.

Looks great, but the bolt is on the wrong side.

He just reversed the negative so we would think he's left handed!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Ah, gotcha. That makes sense, because nobody would buy a rifle with the bolt on the wrong side.
