need advice
 
I'm getting ready to purchase a new rifle. I'm considering an ar-15 from Stag because they build them for us southpaws. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

from what i understand stag is one of the better ar15 makers. i dont personally own a stag. mine are Colt RRA Ruger and DPMS

I've got a couple of Stags and they are GTG. No lefties, though.

Go with the Stag. Well made and very dependable.

OK i shoot long guns southpawed....only cause im left eye dominant, but what I HAVE noticed....STAG's lefty carbines still have right handed controls, only difference being the ejection port (4 years using an M16 and never been hit in the face with brass yet)

i could be wrong though

I built my AR a couple years ago and used a Stag flat-top upper. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. It all fits and performs perfectly. I'd support the choice of a Stag for what it's worth ;)

You are correct in that Stag does make some of their upper for Southpaws, and I believe they may come with an ambi safety on them allowing you to work the safety with your left hand, and the ping pong paddle is right there by your left fore finger, so you should be able to go.

Just another option though, you can shoot any style upper from any maker if you put a brass catcher on your rifle. Then you won't have the brass flying across your field of vision, and you won't have to sweep it up at the range. Easier to collect your own brass if you reload too. That will give you some other options as far as rifles other than Stag. Brass catchers are cheap, like 15.00$.

You bet! I think they should be mandatory at ranges for all semi auto rifles so you are not throwing hot brass at the guy or gal sitting next to you. Bad range etiquete to toss brass down someone's shirt or hit them in the head!
