do they build a left hand model?


Remington offered bolt action rifles in both right and left hand actions. Do not know if they still do, though I would so assume. As for this rifle, sounds like another company is obtaining Remington actions, and doing the rest of it themselves.

Otherwise, what might this URBAN SNIPER STOCK, and URBAN RECOIL PAD be, I wonder?
