As a southpaw, I wanted a LH AR. Stag Arms were the only one doing a true lefty set up that wasn't just parts flipped upside down.

When it came to optics I went with a Burris 332. I love this thing.

I have a Stag LH and really like it. I have Vortex Razor HD scope. While I’m not a lefty, I have eye problems and my left eye is super dominant so I have to shoot all long guns left sided. I had all the controls set up ambi because I’m right handed.

It's dangerous to go alone, take this.

i dont understand how a gun can be left or right handed...arent they pretty much perfectly symetrical?
Simple answer is no. Actually, the vast majority of them produced are set up for right handed shooters. Brother, we need to get you into guns. If you don’t own a few & shoot every now & then you’re missing a good time. Nowadays some pretty decent firearms can be had for a fair price & the hobby is just as addictive a cigars.

On an AR-15 the brass hits the kick plate and spins them off. I don’t get hit with brass but it goes across eye level. I can see them flip and spin off. Sometimes there are gunpowder embers still glowing. If I’m seeing brass, my eyes are off the target. You can get the parts to change an AR to ambitious controls but, unless you have a left hand receiver you can’t switch the ejection port. That said, most of the bull pup designs can be left or right like the Tavor and Kel-Tec RDB. Then some have the forward eject system Kel-Tec RFB.

I finished my first build. It was a labor of love and took some time. But it was worth it and the journey was fun. I started with an Aero Precision lower and went with a Geissele SSA-E trigger. For anyone doing a build I would say go with Geissele triggers. They are worth the extra cost.

For the upper I went with BCM (Bravo Company). 20” barrel 1/8 twist.

I chose a Raptor Axts charging handle which is ambidextrous.

For my optics I went with Sig Sauer red dot Romeo5. I put the Sig Sauer 3X (Juliet3) behind it. The scope is a break away so it can be easily moved aside if wanted.

For the furniture I chose Magpul MOE K2 grip and Magpul ACS stock. The foregrip is BCM and the iron sites are BCM.

For my next build I intend to make a thrasher gun that I can beat up without worrying about it.
