Hey everyone, I just bought a new Bushy and I abolutely love the damn thing. However, thanks to God's blessing I am left handed. Is it possible to switch the mag release to the left side? Thanks for your replies and happy shooting.

No, but there are some companies that have add on that allow the left handed shooter to release the mag on the otherside.

Magpul Industires has something called the Ambicatch.

I would make a suggestion and say just figure out the best way to grab the mag release.  You have a fine rifle, I would avoid putting any unnecessary 'stuff' on it.  Perhaps some south paws will chime in on their techniques.

Absolutely agree w/sniper. I've been a southpaw shooter of ARs for over 25 years and never felt the need for a left side mag release.  Just use your right hand to do the mag change, while you keep your left hand on the pistol grip.

Take your right hand off the fore end and grab the new mag. As you approach the front of the action , stick out your right thumb and punch the mag release button. Ram in the fresh mag, and return your right hand to the fore end. Take your left index finger, slide it along the side of the action til you encounter the action release on the left side. Push it.  Return left hand to the grip. Fire.
