Trying to find the best way to go for my 452 american left hand. Going to start using it in nrl22 matches. What have you lefties done to make this stick work, lop and fore end rail? To my knowledge no chassis are offered for the 452 left hand correct?

Boyd's will do inletting on most of their offerings for left hand 452's.
Apparently The Polished Knob will do left hand 452 bolt handles. There were some pics on Rimfire Central of one he did a while back. He's on facebook and instagram:

I haven't contacted him myself, but people like his work.
Hope that helps.
I'm slowly planning a 452 American build, though I haven't gotten started yet.

Let me know what you decide. I asked a few places a year or so ago that does centerfires and they wouldn’t touch it. I’d still like to have mine rebarreled just for a heavier barrel.
Yeah everyone mentioned Calfee but he isn't accepting work. My smith told me RF is an entirely different set of tools and to find one that specializes in rimfire. Still searching.
