Welcome! Can't go wrong with a Stag. I am a lefty as well and have a lefty Stag Arms AR-15. It has fed 1000 rounds without issue. Never a jam or a misfeed. I love mine greatly! You won't be disappointed.

The selector switch on mine is on the right side of the lower. I also installed an ambi mag release that works wonderful!

Oh yeah, I didn't think about the mag release being on the wrong side of the lower for you south paws out there, and not everyone has to have a bullet button like we do here in Kommiefornia. Dangit!

Pardon my ignorance....but what is "bullet button"? I'm sure it's slang for something no doubt but just never heard the term.

Essentially? It's a two stage magazine release. You have to use a bullet, or other "pointy" device, to depress an inner second stage button to drop the magazine.

Presumably, in the land of Kommiefornia thinking, if you stop to use a pointy device to drop a 10 round mag before loading another 10 round mag, it's going to make you a "safer" shooter where the public is concerned.

Yankee,

Stag builds a good AR Rifle. Only thing that bugs me about the lefty model I the ejection port flips up and not down like on most ARs. But other than the ejection port being on the left side it is the same as all others who can have ambi magazine releases and safety installed. Of course even being left haded the magazine release is no problem on any of them with the use of an index finger. And with the deflectors we no longer get hit with ejected rounds and those cute little round circle burns on our cheek!!!
Good luck there are several top quality ARs out there.

I have a Stag, and bought it for the same reason you are considering, because its a lefty. It is a great, reliable, and tightly fitting gun. As others have said, chances are you wouldn't have any problems shooting a right handed AR (my right handed shooting friends shoot my 2TL without issues), but it is pretty nice having a left handed one.

Stag even produces a .22lr conversion for the lefty versions now.

I assembled my AR15 from a STAG lower and complete upper, although it's not a lefty, and it is very nice rifle. I highly recommend them
