By gum, it is about time that we lefties get left handed scopes! I don't know about you guys, but it irks me to have my adjustment knobs at 12 o'clock and 3 o'clock. They look goofy on my lefty Tikka. I want them at 12 O'clock and 9 O'clock!

Actually, I think that is a left handed scope.  the windage elevation turret SHOULD be opposite to the side the rifle ejects.  the spent cases should not be flying past the sensitive windage turret.

NH you have a good lefty scope with the proper turret placement.

Burns my A$$ that I have to only have lefty scopes for my fine proper side bolt guns!

Now do you feel better?LOL

NH,

If it really bothers you, merely rotate the scope 90 degrees in the mounts and change the legends inside the turrets.  No one will know that your scope is switch hittingWink
