This what I took to the range this morning. :blink: It was in the high 90's by 11:00 AM and it took forever for the guns to cool down between groups. :angry: Posted Image

Seeing that many left handed bolts in one place warms my heart! I've only got three so far.

The 10 day wait for my CZ452 (left handed 22 rimfire bolt) ends tomorrow!

Nice! I just picked up a Savage 93 in 17 HMR recently and just love that Accutrigger. I used it last weekend on cottontails and jacks. The heads were pulverized on my head shot cottontails and the jacks were anchored. It's a great little rifle.

The 93 comes with an accutrigger now? My lefty that I bought two years ago didn't come with one. I had to use the trigger shim tip on Savage Shooters board to get a decent trigger out of it.

I put the RifleBasix trigger in my Savage after trying the shim fix. Fjold a word of warning about the shim trick. It can change suddenly and many have reported the gun firing upon closing the bolt when it malfunctions. A couple of people from this site have experienced it too. :wub:

I looked at that, The main problem with the shim trick is that the tab on the rear housing that the shim goes under bends after awhile because the shim only supports the rear portion of the tab. I saw that when I first installed a shim so I built mine with a U shaped shim that supports the rear trigger tab better. But, shims are never the best solution anyway. I'm going to order a rimfire trigger from Sharpshooter Supply.

There you go that should work. I think it and the RifleBasix are about on par with each other. I got mine on sale it was pretty cheap and works great. Good luck with the swap. :wub:
