    It's a Left Hand model. I'm a left hander. Not to be confused with Left Winger. :D

    Cool, I'm glad to see they thought about yall.
    You'll love your rifle.
    If you put some glass on it you'll have to make sure your rear sight is cleared. I had a little trouble finding the correct rings locally.
    Your trigger is also very easy to adjust.
    It's just a sweet little rifle that will make a blind man look like a good shot. ;) :D

    Thanks, guys. I've just recently gotten back into shooting .22's. Went out last weekend and shot my:

    .22 pump Savage
    AK-47 Romi
    AR-15 9mm Colt

    Afterwards, I was talkng to a friend who has a LUX. Then, after watching a lot of youtube videos on the CZ .22s, I was hooked. And yeah, I'll get glass for it, but for now I'm still stoked on iron sights.

    Ya know it's funny. Seems like no matter WHAT firearm you buy, it's just as exciting and fun as the previous one. It never gets old or tiresome. :)

    Irons are cool. With my Trainer at 25 yds I shot an 1/8" group. I wear 1.75x reading glasses. I counld't even see the sights. :D
    That was the reason for the blind man comment in my other post.
    I did a little range report/ammo test in another thread. See post #11 below. There is also some trigger info in one of my post in the thread.

    Looks good! I'm an iron sight guy myself, never used a scope. I used binoculars to spot my target, tried to eyeball the right spot, and nailed many a squirrel at 100+ yards easily. It's very rare (for me, at least) to see a left handed bolt action. Good price, too. Have fun. TJ

    That's a beautiful rifle, Smokey. :)

    I have not seen a LH version of any manufacturer in a .22 calibre. Very Nice. I gave up years ago trying to find one for a south paw and stuck all my life to lever actions.
