    I have 6 lefty bolt guns and 4 lefty ar-15's. I think a lefty M14 would be a nice addition to my arsenal. I'm also looking at a lefty 10/22.

    I realize getting parts for this in the future could be a huge problem. But what the h? You only live once.
    I do not understand what kind of problem you would have putting a scope on ?? I shoot left hand M14 with a scope on it .

    OK, now I see what the problem is !!

    Re: Lefty M14

    Perhaps a left hand XM21 would be the solution. Rail for scope rings is machined into the receiver hence no need for separate side mount. I see they are available in calibers up to and including .450 Bushmaster on their website. Have had the .450 in my herd for a few years now. Recoil let's you know you pulled the trigger but getting a 250 gn FTX moving has it's toll. I don't think there are any huntable creatures in North American that would not easily be taken with one. Whatta Hobby!

    I finally got around to calling Bula Defense. They're awaiting parts for the lefty M21DMR (22" barrel), which is the model I want. They plan to resume production on it next year. Ok, I can wait.


    PS: I also have lefty guitars and bows.

    I bought a Bula LH DM-21 a few years ago, and I am very happy with it. I think you will find it worth the wait.
