Default Left handed AR15

Now that Rock River Arms are also making LH AR's I would like some opinions on which Manufacturer people think the most of?

If you have to get a LH AR, get the Stag. You can actually get one without waiting for a year.

I wrestled with getting a left handed version for a few months. Then I decided on a piston operated AR instead. I figured the parts are proprietary anyway so I might as well get something bad ass. I went with a PWS MK 114, no gas in my face from because there's no gas in the bcg at all since its piston driven, no brass in my face due to the deflector and while a spent a few $$ more for the PWS as compared to a Stag 3L or RRA lefty, I got most of the upgrades I would have added (MOE furniture, magpul MBUS and trigger guard, BCM gunfighter charging handle, enhanced buffer tube, fsc556 muzzle break, quad rail) from the factory.
Just my $.02.

You know the funny thing is I hear people complain about this or that when shooting an AR, M16, M4, but I've never really noticed it (well besides the hot brass landing on my neck from the shooter next to me) but other than that nothing. I guess I'm concentrating to hard on hitting my target

Brass in my face has never been an issue most ARs have a brass deflector, it's the gasses that are released thru the bolt carrier that is a bigger issue for me. That was why I would have considered a lefthanded AR. But with the piston AR there are no gasses coming out of the BCG so case closed. Then add to the fact that a piston AR is easier to clean, runs cooler and you don't have to worry about running the AR wet all the time, it was a no-brainer for my use.

Food for thought, I'll look into the piston drives.
