    Were you able to weigh the gun itself to find out what it weighs? If so would you pm it to me?

    Depends on how much cast-off it has. You will never notice the patchbox. I am LH and I shoot rifles of both sides. Depending on the shape of the comb, the cast-off can put the edge of the comb into your cheekbone and make it hard to get behind the sights. A straight stock can be shot comfortably from either side.

    in having a wooden patch box it would be much more gentile on the cheek than a brass one. !

    I have several RH rifles with brass patchboxes, and they are no more noticeable to shoot LH than a wooden one. The only thing to watch for is the edge of the lid snagging your jacket. The lid is facing into the shoulder and will sometimes snag on clothing. A pushbutton opening lid won't be a problem. A snap shut type lid can catch and open.
