Have a read of this thread, - your rifles are highly respected, BUT YOUR NOT with this !
Your customers having to " have the balls" to do this, to a brand new, walnut stock, Pro Sport, to finally " take it upon themselves and make their own left handed, Pro Sport stock "
Shame on you !
Well said Mark.
I've really begun to think, it's actually not a bad idea of yours, stated earlier on the original thread to this project that, perhaps, I really ought to write to the Airgun Press, Terry Doe and Co and show em these photographs and write an article on how to reshape and modify the Pro Sport stock for a left hand shooter to comfortably use, with Jimmy's help in oiling and finishing. Plus how easy it is to load the rifle through its right-handed port, once you get the knack of it.
I wonder how it will be received by the left hand shooting fraternity who, like me, have felt unfairly discriminated against by Air Arms in refusing to produce this rifle for us left-handers? There must be other left-handed shooters who'd love to own this rifle as much as me?
I wonder.. What do other left-handers here think?
If Air Arms true intention is to keep sales of Left handed TX200 rifles upwardly healthy, by keeping the Pro Sport strictly out of the left hand market, they are still, greatly losing out in lost sales revenues to rivals like Weihrauch who will happily provide you with a left handed or ambidextrous version of their rifles.
Minelli now say they are strictly governed by their client's control. So if Air Arms say no to left handed Pro Sport gunstocks, that's not in Minelli's interests to argue.
I've never come across a British company in these uncertain times, who stubbornly refuses to cater for a clear overall market demand for their flagship product.
It's utter bloody madness!
