RPM XL Question

Postby echale3 » Wed May 24, 2017 8:00 am

I'm left-handed, and I am looking online at a RPM XL. They appear to be a right-hand only proposition. Can one be fired left-handed as-is, or would I have to send it out to be modified to put the disconnector on the opposite side of the grip?

I don't think it's a good choice for us lefties. There's better unlimited guns and doing the required mods throws it out of Production. Hasn't kept me from looking from time to time, though!

Left hand conversions were available in the past from RPM, production legal. Don't know what the situation is now that Gary W. owns the company.

Thanks for the info, y'all! Had never even heard rumors about the LH version before.

Right and left hand versions were made. I had a left hand .30 Herret in the 80's
