    Help finding a gun please!

    My nephew just received as a gift a trip to a camp for young adults in Colorado where they participate in a big game hunt. He leaves at the end of October and is in need of a left hand rifle in .270, .308, or 30-06, particularly he mentioned a Winchester model 70 featherweight. They have looked around Indy and nowhere had one and they all say 2 week wait to order. Price range 800- 1000. Anyone have a lead?

    Bud's gun shop online might be your best bet. Then call Allen at AA optics to get him set up with a proper scope.

    Checked Winchester. The left-hand model 70 featherweight is discontinued. No mention there of how long it's been out of production. You may find stock on line - Bud's was already mentioned.

    .270 caliber left hand:
    Item number: 535942264
    UPC: 048702110740

    They also made a .300, .325 and 7mm - details on all calibers here:

    Thanks for the replies! Buds is showing out of stock on pretty much every left hand bolt gun except I saw one .300 ultra.

    A search of "left bolt" on Gunbroker showed over 1500 available. You could have one by this weekend or maybe find one listed that is in Indiana.

    I second calling Andy at AA Optics.

    Yup, for left hand and a nicer rifle, I think Tikka and CZ are about what's left without going custom.

    But gunbroker will/should have lots of left hand options, Winchester, Browning, etc.
