Default tell me your favorite lefty friendly after-market parts

lefty shooters unite, there are lots of choices for alternate controls for my upcoming ar-10 build, i want to know your favorites and why so i know what to pick out

maybe a set up more for the right handed, left eye dominant.

An ambi selector and mag release are pretty useful. Google around...there's some stuff out there.

Stag makes a southpaw AR-15...not sure about an AR-10. I thought I read somewhere DPMS makes a lefty AR-10.

The 10 has a brass deflector so you shouldn't have a problem getting hit in the face with brass with a right-hand model.

My favorite is a dedicated left handed Safety (not an Ambi)
Since I'm left handed but shoot a right hand AR I find that the right hand safety rubs against my trigger hand and becomes a distraction.

The other left hand item I would like but have been unable to find is a nice left hand Walnut pistol grip with thumb rest.

hmm, 4 years in the USMC and the right handed safety in my left hand never felt strange to me, but it didn't let me flip the safety to the corp's exacting (never take your finger away from the trigger guard) standard
