Hello everyone,


I have searched and come up with very little in the way of Southpaw or Left Handed AR-10 (.308) rifle makers. I have been Googling my eyes crossed in search of such a rifle maker. Any help would be most appreciate to this new member.

Thanks,
Eric

Well, since ArmaLite does not make a lefthanded AR10, there are no makers of lefthanded AR10s.

You might want to post over in the AR Variants forum that you are looking for a left handed AR in .308./7.62x51.

I don't believe anyone makes a lefthanded AR style rifle in .308/7.62x51.

Lots of lefthanded people shoot the AR10 and other .308/7.62x51 ARs with no problem.
If it's a Colt, it's a copy of an original ArmaLite.

I am not LARRYG36.

Racing is life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

If your AR10 is marked Geneseo, IL, it's still an AR10 no matter what some people say.

I'm a leftie but really can't see anything I'd want to change on my AR-10A4 carbine because of that. If you're concerned about ejected brass hitting you, the shell deflector does a good job of preventing that. I DO have a left-handed Remington 700 bolt gun, but you can see the obvious advantage of not having to reach over the rifle to cycle the action.

Thanks Wacoman, I am thinking I will just buck up and go for a right handed rifle and just adapt.
