I think my plan will work, but I'm throwing this question up to the experts here.
So I want a left handed Tikka T3x in 338 win mag. Yes, I know it's going to kick. Anyways, such a configuration isn't brought into the US. But EuroOptics has right handed T3's in 338 win mag for $499. If I also get a left handed T3x in some other chambering, will a barrel swap be as simple as it sounds? I'd turn around and sell the remaining rifle. Is there any reason to get the left handed T3x in a particular chambering to make the barrels mate best with the actions? I believe the long actions are identical and barrels are of the same contour, but I'm not a Tikka expert. I would have a gunsmith do the barrel swap for sure. Anyone have any good gunsmith recommendations and idea for how much it would cost?
Can you think of any bugs in the plan?
