Is Kimber ever going to build a LH Montana??

Newbie to this forum, here.

I've called and begged Kimber about this at least as many times as I have fingers.

Catch myself drooling over RH Montana's frequently. I'm a lifelong lefty and don't need/want anymore RH rifles. I've already got 3 pre64 Winchester Model 70's - a.30-06 FWT, a .264 Win Mag Westerner, and a .270 Win Standard, all in RH config.

Anybody heard anything positive directly from Kimber reps about this?

I'm thinking if they built a 6.5 Creed in LH, that'd be a wonderful payback for all the past suffering.

That is a legitimate question! Unfortunately it probably is not at the top of their to do list. I love LH firearms! I own four to date!

Local dirt I own two LH Remington 700's I really like them both one is a 7 mm Mag and the other is a .270 win. You might consider a Remington. Not sure but Ruger has produced some LH rifles in the past if I am not mistaken. I hate using RH bolt actions I take offense to have to use a tool built specifically for a right handed individual. I guess it goes back to my school days when I had to use those desks that had no armrest on the left side!

Funny...

But, I hear ya loud and clear.

Heck, I am so used to being forced into using so many things right handed (ex: power tools), it's more difficult to use them with my left hand.

I can do card tricks one-handed with my right hand that I cannot do left handed.

I grew up in a time when parents (and grandparents, in my case) would try to force you into being right handed. As an example, they'd sit on the right side of the table from me and keep putting the spoon back in my right hand. Well, you can see how great that worked.
