remington 7400, 750 etc. Right shoot left?
I know years ago they used to make a left version.. But Never having shot one. can a Left Eyed guy like myself shoot a right hand model? I know some guns you will just get whacked in the face with the shell, and some like the ar with shell deflector it is fine.. Anyone know? Any of you lefties been smacked? How do they throw their shells? thanks

Don't buy the 7400. My 308 was a jamomatic. Never shot more than two rounds without jamming. Sold it for parts. Needs a special wrench to take the action out. Worse rifle I ever owned.

My 7400 is chambered in 270 winchester and it throws the brass out and slightly forward. My dad shoots it left handed regulaly with no issues. I have never had any jamming issues with mine at all. It's a good gun.

I had a Remington 750 in .308 and I shoot left handed. Never had any problems with this. Some ammo seemed more likely to cause jamming. Other wise good rifle.

I've listed mine for sale here on calguns. It's a real shooter and has never given me any function problems. Thanks for looking!

I have several friends who shot 742 rifles left handed with no trouble. Excellent rifles.
