Hello everyone, I have a slight problem with my Bushmaster! It is right handed and when I shoot the ejected casings pop me in the neck and burn me I want to replace the upper receiver with a left ejecting one but I was told that Bushmaster does not make a left handed upper. My question is, is there some other upper receiver that can replace the current one with little problem. Thanks

Noveske, DPMS, and Stag. But if the brass is actually whacking you. you might check on having a smith do some tuning of the extractor/ ejector. Back in the day, was a major problem for my Southpaw soldiers shooting Colts, but the GM HydroDynamic M16s had a different ejection patten.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
Keep in mind, if you change your ejection port, then you also need to change the bolt. the extractor and ejector on the bolt are designed to toss the brass to the right, and the bolts cannot be flipped upside down in the carrier.
