I have a RAW HM1000x with a right=hand walnut stock. I shoot left-handed and I'm trying to decide if I should order a left hand stock like the one on the gun or the LRT stock which is ambidextrous. I know a left hand stock would be harder to sell if I decide to move the gun later, but I don't see that happening, plus I have the right hand stock too, so that would make it a mute point. What are your opinions?

No question, since you already have the right-hander, go with the lefty. You'll be glad you did.

Selling a lefty rifle,especially a RAW, is never difficult. You'll really never get the most out of your rifle shooting a right-hand stock lefty. I'd opt for a left-hand sporter stock if you're going to carry it around. I think the LRT is more of a bench/bipod stock.

That's my thinking also. I have a son who is rt handed so I will probably keep both so when he inherit the gun he will havea stock that fits him.

Spent Saturday shooting my 30 cal HM1000X, had a 1 in deep well socket spray painted out at 67 yards at the tree line laser measured from the pic a nic table. Too ez to hit.
