BKL makes it. They're a sponsor over at Rimfirecentral.com and they make good stuff! Do a search and you'll see nothing but excellent reviews. A little spendy (I remember paying something like $65 shipped) but built like a rock! Here's a pic of my BKL 261 on my Marlin 17V with a Simmons 44Mag 6.5-20x44 scope.

Nothing. I shoot ambidexterously. Is that a word? I'm right handed. But I actually shoot better with my left hand, pistols, rifles, whatever. I'm a closet lefty! :angry:

Best thing about being a lefty is while driving I can comfortably shoot out of the window. Of course that would be off road on private property! :angry: :D
