I'm a lefty and looking to buy an AR. Since they make a "true lefty", I was just looking for some input on the company.



Any opinions from left handed shooters on any AR would be appreciated. Thanks.

Stag is good stuff. It's who actually makes the S&W M&P15 rifles.

I dont recommend lefty AR's as a standard AR works fine for righty or lefties with the addition of a Ambi-Catch (magazine release).

Thanks. Why wouldn't you recommend a lefty, just out of curiosity?

Mainly because they have proprietary (lefty) bolt carrier assemblies. You may never have a problem, but if you do.... Spare parts are available for the lefty AR's but in the field it could be a major issue. (*This may or may not be a concern of yours)



A standard right handed AR is just as ambidextrious as the lefty AR's with the addition of a ambi safety selector and the Norgon "Ambi-Catch". I shoot with three guys that are lefties, who own standard AR's without any issues.

I'm a lefty and I shoot a standard AR. I don't need an ambi-catch either. I do use an ambi-safety though. With the brass deflector molded onto the receiver, the brass gets deflected forward (out of your face).

Thanks, its the brass in the face, that concerned me the most.

I'm a Lefty, have been for years.



For fun, not for work, I bought one of the L/H Stag ARs in 6.8mm SPC. Mine has the Ambi selector lever but not the Norgon ambi mag release. I have gotten so used to punching the mag release with the thumb of my support hand that I have never really gotten into using the ambi mag release with my trigger finger.



The L/H Stags are nicely turned out and mine runs. Q/C on it seemed pretty darn good - better than I've encountered from other name companies.

Stag staked out a good reputation quite quickly, they initially took off with a lot of the guys for their reasonably priced stripped lower receiver, and then their left hand AR's came out to almost universal rave reviews.

I'm still deciding on which rifle to go with. I'm also talking to Grant @ G&RTactical about a build. I'll be doing something soon though.

I have been firing M16's for 19 years, just in the last 8 years have I been firing M4's. I shoot a rifle lefty and have no issues with brass ejecting in your face. You just get used to seeing the brass ejecting near your face... :wink: However, I am seriously in debate with a few friends and fellow Soldiers which manufacturer has the best buy for the buck when it comes to AR15's. IMO, I believe Stag Arms is that true leader for quality, customer support and sheer reputuation.

After doing alot of research and shooting my brothers AR, I'm not concerned with any lefty issues.

The Stag LH is a fine weapon. One of my local dealers is a leftie and has one. After 10k rounds he says its perfect. Never a problem. 8)
