    Is the new Impact MK2 with the new Sideshot magazine a viable system for a left handed shooter? I guess the question is basically about the SideShot system. Can a left handed shooter use it? Or does the larger magazine interfere with your cheek rest?

    Yes, I'm a left handed shooter and the side shot doesn't bother me one bit. I did however buy a Kraford and Lypt left handed, adjustable cheek piece which really helps at aligning my eye and scope. Either way, you're good to go, not a problem for a lefty.

    Awesome thank you!

    i just sold my Impact “X” and I’m having sellers remorse. I was looking at the MK2. Just was worried if the side shot would be ok.

    I sort of wish they made the MK2 able to shoot polymag pellets. Oh well can’t have everything. Thank you again!

    What do you mean "able to shoot polymags".  Are you referring to .30 cal?

    BOBO, I saw these cocking blocks when someone posted a picture a few days back. Pretty cool stuff is available for the Impact. As a left handed shooter, I actually really like the cocking handle on the right  hand so I don't have to move my trigger hand from the trigger to cock the gun. I think that AGT got it right putting the biathlon cocking lever on the VulcanII on the left hand side for right handed shooters. I bet if more right handed shooters tried a gun with the cocking lever on the left hand side, they'd love it, especially for benchrest where you don't want to change your position or speed shooting events!  I bet Saber Tactical will sell a bunch of these to right handed shooters. Good to have you back Bob!

    Another lefty with an Impact and sideshot mag. The mag does touch your face but is not an issue in any way. I actually like it. I rest my jaw against it for an index point.

    No I wanted the .22 poly mags to hut for birds. Right now the regular .22 poly mags are just a bit too long. The shorty can fit but I prefer the regular poly mags.

    Line up a bunch of Poly Mags on the counter, run a lighter or small butane torch over the top of the poly mags and the tips will melt down, nice and rounded. They still shoot exceptionally well and expand as they did beforehand. How much you melt them will determine if they fit in the magazine or not. Give it a shot, it works well!
