    I purchased my first tonight after work! My motorcycle sold so I figued the only sane thing to do was get an AR. It is the lefty model and I put on a foregrip and Eotech 512 on it. Future plans are a new pistol grip, single point sling mount, and many more magazines. It feels great with that foregrip on it. I absolutely can't wait to shoot it.

    And a few shots I took of the ammo. Last one makes a cool background.

    You said it's a lefty model, if so, I am curious as to why the mag release is on the right side still :confused:

    Stag Arms 2TL

    Just the upper is lefty. The lower is a standard lower with a right side safety lever.

    I can get the ambi mag release for $90 and ambi safety lever for $25. I will probably do both of those mods sooner or later. I'll see how big a deal it is for me the way it is.

    EDIT: Mine must be a bit older. The newer ones have ambi safetys already on them.

    Going to order the Houge Grip, Ambi Selector and Norgon Ambi Mag-Catch from their site tomorow.

    I'm im excited. I have never fired a rifle so it will be a different experience over the handguns.

    Beautiful rifle! I just got into ARs myself and they are a lot of fun to shoot.

    As far as the right handed lower. . . I am also a lefty and find it is very manageable to work the mag release by stretching out my left thumb around to the right side of the receiver. My hand never leaves the pistol grip. Also try swiping the bolt catch/release with your left index knuckle/finger. Don't know how big your hands are, but its worth mentioning.

    I've shot right handed rifles as a lefty my whole life.

    Have fun!

    Just a thought for you southpaws...

    Ambi-Catch – This ambidextrous release is a patented “drop-in” replacement of the original magazine catch for AR15/M16 rifles. It gives both right and left-handed flexibility

    Already ordered an Ambi mag release. :)

    Diggs - I'll have to try that out. I am 6' and have fairly large hands.
