Jse surplus builds left handed uppers. I've heard good feedback from a couple members here who own JSE products.

Wow thanks for the information, I got a lot of homework to do. Foretunately it will be a few months before I have scrounged the cash together for an AR. Hopefully they don't get any scarcer than they are now.

Well since The Chart has officially appeared...

If you want a drop dead reliable carbine then Colt, BCM, Daniel Defense, Noveske and LMT were the ticket over the last few years. S&W came close but did cut some corners. Many of the others named in this thread fell very short however they still were acceptable rifles if you didn't have to bet your life on them (which is 90%+ of the AR buyer demographic).

The Chart is no longer maintained today but if it were, PSA, Scionics and Spikes likely would be Tier 1 or very close. Stag claims their $100 milspec upgrade puts them in the elite group. Again, this may matter to you or may not. However with a $1000 budget you're at the Colt and BCM ball park so why not get a hard use AR! PSA is the bargain leader at around $750 or so.

Assuming you find a right handed AR works for you.

A must think about before you buy is that the lefty stuff like the BCG has some proprietary left handed parts, if something breaks your standard righty bcg stuff wont work so keep that in mind . SHTF there will be millions more righty stuff than lefty . Just keep that in mind

You know, I'm left handed (right eye dominant) but most always shoot rifles left handed. I have never had an issue doing this. Maybe it's the lenf handed guy always having to adapt thing. I'm honestly not sure. I do know that hunting for left hand firearms always looked to be a pain to me so I just stopped looking at them. I have shot a couple south paw guns but didn't see enough of an advantage in them to want to get one. I do shoot both left and right handed but when I really want to get picky with a target I shoot left handed most the time. Maybe I should look at a south paw AR. Though I have no problem with the crappy AR I have now (Double Star).
