    Is their a way to switch a right handed bolt to a left handed bolt? The gun is a Marlin Model 81 22. How much would it cost on average?

    It would be far cheaper to just buy a lefty .22 rifle. Savage makes a good one complete with the accutrigger. CZUSA also make a very good lefty .22 in its models 452 and 453. The CZ is the more costly. I have one of each. The Savage is very accurate, the CZ super accurate. The Savage the can be had for about $160-180 the CZ will run from $320 to $380.

        The rifle was passed down in my family, and i would like to be able to switch it, if not i would just leave it righty.

          A cutting torch, file and a hammer to bend the bolt works great!

              How long have you had the model 81? I have one and have never met anyone else that has one.

                Hold the rifle upside down and if you’re a liberal turn it around!!

                  Rabbit Police, it has been in my family for 3 generations, so probably around 20-30 years.

                    Ok, I had one given to me by a good friend about 10 years ago. He had it for 30 years and when he bought it, it was used. I was just wondering. I love mine, they don't make them like they used to.

                        If it were me, which it is not, I wouldn't try to convert it. You say it was passed down in the family, so even though I understand that you would love to actually use it, I believe it would be far better to preserve it in its original condition. Go out and buy yourself a lefty model and save this one in its current configuration for passing on to your children and thier children.

                              I understand the reason someone would pick the heavier bullets. However, heavier bullets cause greater recoil and will affect recovery time and may result...

                              I wouldn’t spend that much on a 10/22 but I might on a bolt gun. For that kind of money I expect some style to go with it, of the Cooper or Annie level....

                              Would you spend $900 for a Ruger 10/22 to shoot 300yds ? A little over 1" at 100 and a little 0ver 6" at 300yds. Lapua and SK ammo used....

                              I like the Remington Golden Saber Black Belt 147gr 9mm (not +P) and the 180gr in .40. Check out the statistics. Some LEO friends always suggest the heavy...
