Jani,

I suspected as much. I too am a southpaw and have a batch of lever rifles in the stable. I also collect classic sporters, hence my being on this forum. I find the extra cheek pressure exerted using an offset scope on one of my "classic" types is distracting but not too bad. I have a long neck so leaning over the comb isn't a hindrance. With the 270, recoil shouldn't be bad enough to be uncomfortable, especially for shots at game. Realize the stock will be rising into your face. I've used both Weaver and Williams and it is a toss up as far as I am concerned.

I have an old Ballard with a Lyman scope and offset mounts. It allows use of the iron sights and scope without removing the scope. I have no problem keeping cheek contact on it, but it does have a small cheekpiece on it.

Thaine,
Good to hear from a fellow lefty; and from all the others, of course. I'm looking forward to see this project materialize soon.
Cheers,
Jani

I made this pad out of deer skin for a friend that had to go to a scope on his 94' Winchester. It helps get a little better cheek weld with a side mounted scope. Shoe store did the stitching.
