No less than 18 different rifle manufacturers make or have made true left-handed rifles over an extended period of time. This includes but is not limited to
  • Anschutz
  • Blaser
  • Browning (20+ years)
  • Carl Gustaf
  • CZ
  • Dakota
  • Granite Arms
  • Harris
  • Interarms Mauser
  • Kimber
  • Matheiu
  • Montana
  • Remington (40+ years)
  • Ruger (20+ years)
  • Sako
  • Savage (50+ years)
  • STAG
  • Tikka
  • Weatherby (50+ years)
  • Winchester


Left-hand production rifles have been made in over 35 different production calibers not including proprietary or special order cartridges.

The left-hand versions' list price ranges from the exact same price as the right-hand model to maybe 20% more than the right-hand model.


Benelli, Fabarm, Remington, Savage, and Winchester have made left-hand shotguns. Just this year Benelli introduced yet more left-hand models requiring additional business investment on their part. They added left-hand 20 gauge guns which are on a smaller size frame than their left-hand 12 gauge guns.

Long gun makers obviously make a profit in the left-hand niche.



Yet, with dozens of companies making 1911 pistols... with individual companies making a dozen different families of 1911 pistols and many more individual models...

No one will even try to make a mid-level price point left-hand 1911.
