    I see 1911s with ambi safeties, but what about magazine ejectors? can they be ambi. or do you have to be just left dedicated? or just deal with the old trigger finger magazine eject drill?

    I use my middle finger. I have become so used to it that I had to go get it to see which finger I use. I really wasn't sure. I can reload as fast as a righty when I do it. It doesnt slow me down at all. You will get used to it.

    Smith and Alexander has a LH mag release.

    S&A - Ambidextrous Mag Release

    Or you could just get a Caspian portsider;

    No, not reversed negative photos, a real mirrored 1911.

    They are a bit spendy though.

    Personally, I just gave up and learned to shoot my 1911's right handed.

    Everything else, I still carry left handed though!
