    Well, you'll want the best R1 barreled action in the lefty stock so start with a visual inspection, then shoot them both.  If you have a chronograph check the velocities as well.

    1.  If you're lucky the best looking, best shooting one will already be in the lefty stock.  DONE!

    2.  If your just a little less lucky and the best looking, best shooting one is in the right hand stock, switch them.  DONE!

    3.  If the stars just won't align and the best shooting is the worst looking, switch the guts and put the now best looking, hopefully best shooting one in the lefty stock.  DONE!

    4.  Same goes for the hardware.  Keep the best.

    Can you keep two?  If you're an R1 lover like me and don't already have a 10m match gun, that Walther will be a nice change of pace.  MDriskill got me into 10m guns years ago and my R1's hardly get shot anymore.

    The Walther is a righty and you're a lefty. Sell them all and get an R9, and hw50 or HW30. Money left over for scopes.

    The Webley C1 is ok I guess but I like my Webley Vulcan and Stingray better for that size and power. Both hard to find. Vulcans are almost always beat up it seems. Folks don't part with Stingrays very often either.

    My 2 cents ain't worth a dime

    The first adult airgun I bought was the C1 from a Beeman catalog back in 1986. Never cared for it that much but I couldn't afford a Feinwerkbau 124 at the time. I think I paid $160 or so for the C1.

    In the 80's I was interested in a C! from what I read in the catalog but when I went to the local Beeman dealer and handled it, cocked it, I decided I would rather have something else for my money

    I might be interested in any but the wrong-handed R-1. Feel free to PM me to discuss.

    Yes agreed on the 55.  Now that I think about it, I don't have one of those.  Reach out if you decide you want to move it along.
