22. Hornet

Does anyone know of any company that makes a left handed 22 hornet?

I know savage makes the 25.. but its RH.. looking to spend around the $500-600 range.

Forget about it. You may be able to find a Cooper in a lefty but 500-600 is a pipe dream.

There's a left hand Hornet on GB. Slightly different price range. It's a Blaser.

Have you considered a .223 with reduced loads or subsonic ammo?

You could probably rebarrel a Savage .223 to .22 Hornet for close to the price range you mention.

How would I go about this? Buy a .223 LH and just get a 22 hornet barrel?

Rebarreling a Savage is the easy part. Take a look online for the steps to do it, not hard. I haven't read up on if the bolt face would need changed. They are slightly different between the two cartridges.


Another option would be the H&R that is for sale in the classifieds on here. Just a thought.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.

I think the .223 is only very slightly larger in rim diameter. Getting the magazine to function would likely be a bigger issue but I haven't done or looked into any of it. It was just a thought. The swapping of barrels on Savages is really simple, though.

The CZ 527 is a sweet little gun in .22 Hornet but I'm not sure if they make a left handed model....Worth a look
