Dear All,

Looking for your recommendations on good LEFT HAND semi-autos from you knowledgable people out there!)

(Now I know very little about this topic as am right handed and own pumps and O/Us...)

All opinions and advice welcomed on this, am thinking the gun will be mainly for waterfowling and a bit of pigeon / dove hunting.

Thanking you in advance,

Scrummy

I don't know of any LH Beretta autos but if you find one, buy it! I have had a LH Remington 11-87, two Benelli Montefeltros and a Benelli Super Black Eagle. Of these I like the Montefeltro the best. I don't shoot 3.5" shells so the SBE was kind of wasted on me. If I were looking for a LH auto right now I would look real hard at the Benelli M2.

I can recomend Benelli, I have a M2 which is working great under all conditions. Cleaning is easy and disasembly is done in minutes. It have few moving parts compared to many other autoloaders.
Pointabillity is outstanding and from the day I got it have been my first choice whether I am shooting clays or hunting.

Good luck with your choice

Unfortunately, Beretta refuses to acknowledge that us leftys exist when it comes to semi-autos. Please don't buy a RH one and shoot it LH if you can help it. The first time you get gassed in the face, you'll regret it.

I had this same dilemma and settled on a Benelli SBE II. Great gun, I love it. Also it comes with drop shims so you can adjust drop on it.

I shoot skeet, dove, up to geese with it. Reliable and points well.

I was at the Addieville shoot this past weekend and the rep said that the FABARM XLR5 VELOCITY is going to be a true left hand gun with left hand eject. They are supposed to be in the states in late May or June according to him. He also said they are on Facebook so they can tell shooters when guns are coming and shipping to dealers plus updates and new product releases. I checked; here is the link;
www.facebook.com/FabarmUsa

Gurini still does not have a Facebook page.

Fabarms has long been making LH semi's. Only problem has been in finding one. Now CG has purchased into them and has taken over sales in the USA so we should be better served then in the past.

I have a lefty SBEII and works great when the recoil spring is clean. My Berette A390ST Silver Mallard had the safety switched over to lefty and it's a great shooting piece after nearly 20 years. No complaints on either of them.

I shot a few rounds with a kid who got a new Rem Versa Max. Fine gun. However, he could feel the hot gasses with the light loads and the lower fore arm started to heat up too. Only a few FTF. It was a true lefty gun and only time will tell.

I'm sure u could find a lightly used sbe in LH to fit the bill.

TNL,
Remington is making the VersaMax in lefty? I might have check one out!
It'd be the first lefty gun I've ever considered buying.

Remington does not make the versamax in LH.

I shoot a Browning Silver Hunter that is a Righty eject but I switched the safety and this works for me. Mostly a field gun so not sure how much that matters to some. The safety switch is a simple process and doesn't require a Gunsmith at all.
