Default .22 Conversion for AR

I was considering getting a .22 conversion for my stag arms .223. I was looking at this.

AR-15 .22lr Stainless Conversion Kit w/1-25rd Mag New CMMG

But I just realized that my AR is a left hand upper where the brass ejects from the left side. So this won't work, will it?

I'd need a right handed upper correct?

Just an update:

I found this direct from Stag Arms for lefty ARs. Problem is it is $70 more expensive. 25rd mags are $20 each. Anybody use the Stag conversion and if so how did it perform? This looks to be my only real option besides buying an upper.

the first one from cmmg will not work with a lefty upper. the second one looks to be, from the pic, identical to the cmmg it should work fine.

Looks like the Stag conversion is the way for me to go. Just debating if it would be worth it overall. I guess it would save $$ on .223 ammo and allow me to shoot it at the 50' range indoors during the winter.
