That's odd. I thought that steering bensons were always right-handed, whereas this thing is obviously left-handed (note the placement of the Finnigan pin --- unless I'm looking at it upside-down?). But, if anyone would know it would be Bob.

EDIT:
Wait a minute! My nephew, just back from his week in the wilds of Big Bear Lake with the Boy Scouts, tells me it's a "Left-handed Smoke-shifter".
