Does anybody know if the Weaver Tactical Picatinny bases will work on a left hand rifle?  I have a left hand Remington 700 I'm trying to find a good cheap base for.  I've seen the EGW's but I like the idea of the recoil lug on the Weaver.  Weaver's wed site doesn't say anything about it being left or right hand specific but I don't want any issues with the ejection port being blocked.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

I too am a "special shooter" and have a Remington. I run a Badger Ord. 20 MOA rail. 
I'm not sure if the Weaver will work, but I'd think it would. You could call them, I recon. 

The EGW is considered by most to be a decent rail and fairly inexpensive.

I also have a Badger on one of my rifles and I really like it but I'm looking for a decent cheap alternative. If the Weaver doesn't pan out all probably go with the EGW.

I have a weaver picatinny rail on a remmy 700 and it won't work for a lefty.  The underside of the base is milled at an angle that opens in the wrong direction. 

They might have a more "universal" tactical mount that would work though.  Sorry just not knowledgeable enough to thoroughly answer your question.

Well you told me exactly what I needed to know. Sometimes it's a curse being a lefty...
