Left handed guns
 
Ok are there any left handed handguns ( safety/mag drop)

Glocks are usually like Legos, might find one of them. I know there are many with ambidextrous safeties and slide releases, but mag release you might be hard pressed. Look at Bersa. Think the Ruger SR9C might as well. There was a recent thread looking for a lefty semi-auto, might seek it out for more suggestions and help.

Thread titled South paw needs help. It's just down the page.

I can confirm the Ruger SR9 and SR9c both have ambi safety and ambi mag release. The only lever that is not ambi is the slide stop.

Mostly all the Berettas are ambidextrous.

Some of the Taurus models have ambi safeties and the mag release can be switched to either side.

The straight XD's all have ambidextrous magazine releases. The slide lock/release is on the left side of the frame, tho. Not sure about the XDM or XDS series of handguns from Springfield Armory, tho.

The Gen 4 Glock magazine releases can be swapped from Righty to Lefty fairly easily. Just a minor modification that takes a couple of minutes, per the instruction manual (I've never actually done it, myself).

Cz85 combat is completely ambidextrous. Safety, mag release, and slide stop. Plus its a Cz

The only truly ambi gun that I have ever seen is the Bersa Ultra Compact Pro. Many guns have ambi safeties but not slide releases. The bersa has an ambi safety, ambi slide release and the mag release can be switched to either side.

I do not use a slide release on any handgun. I have found that is is much easier to grab the slide and pull back. That is how I train. If you had to defend yourself with a gun you were not familiar with, you would not waste valuable seconds looking for a lever.
