Limited selection/colors available compared to standard, but wanted to hear from the lefties what left handed R700 compatible chassis/stocks they prefer.

Thank you!

What is your purpose and budget? Plenty of good options, but some are better than others based on application

I've tried following:

MPA BA
XLR Envy
Foundation Centurion
Manners PRS TCS

Currently my two lefties are sitting in Manners and Foundation.

MPA and XLR are empty.

I like them all and they all have pros and cons.

Chassis are IMO better in customizing balance points, stocks just feel different and you might be greatful for a stock during cold months. .

Blasphemy.
We lefties are the only ones in our right mind.
I went with the XLR 4.0 Magnesium.
Trying to make a light weight rifle that I could carry all day.
I have not gotten to fire it yet so I can not say how it fires.

For a petite female (5'1") or small boy. Small hands.

Short trigger reach

Plinking, prone, tripod, bench, etc

Preferably with adjustable LOP even if requiring tools is fine

Budget is open but under $1k would be good

KRG Xray or Manners type stock are what im looking at now

Wisco
MDT ACC with short buttstock
XLR Element or Envy
McMillan U10
KMW Sentinel

All the above have short/adjustable LOP and provide a closer than normal grip to trigger distance. I like Manners stocks, but the trigger is a country mile from the grip on the ones I've played with

For the money (purchased here used-so it wasn’t a whole lot more than a decked out bravo) I really like my Magpul Pro. But for a smaller statured shooter the Bravo would be near top of my list.

We make a whole variety of LH chassis and you can check them out on our site! As a left, I have shot just about all of them and can help answer any questions you may have :) For your purpose, I would suggest our LSS-XL chassis, or soon to be in production LH XRS!

Being a Lefty myself...

I have or had at one time:

McRee
XLR
McMillan
Manners
HS Precision
KRG Bravo

For a small statured shooter, XLR & KRG Bravo win that race pretty easily, IMHO.

I recently converted a right hand stock to left hand. Couldn’t get a left hand Bergara stock; not even direct from Bergara.

    I'm a big fan of KRG W3 and the Vision chassis. KRG W3 is such a comfortable chassis and the vision is very fast and easy to adjust and offers a real folder for a lefty. It would be one of those 2 for me. I have both of course, and I have had several others but none were on the same level as those 2 are imo.

    XLR has a huge range for LOP. Doesn’t get much shorter so it’s great for kids

    I'll add another vote for MDT. I'm running an MDT LSS-XL Gen2 and it's pretty hard to beat.

    Can you give us some info on how you made the cuts/bolt relief so clean?
    Great job!
    I scribed a guide line with the action in the stock. Used a Dremel with sanding wheel at medium speed for ejection port cutting polymer. Had to use carbide bit for the aluminum

    I also use tape as a guideline when practical.

    As for the clean lines, really it’s just experience in using the Dremel. I get it close and use hand files or sand paper for touch up.

    Sorry there is not secret magic here.
