Ambidextrous Airsoft?

Looking for recommendations on Assault and Sniper type airsoft with ambidextrous controls.

Well this is it, finally turning 18...
More importantly finally leaving the world of clearsoft.
One of the most important features for me is the ambidexterity of an airsoft.
Any recommendations on makes/models? My price range is around 200-500 so try not to get me excited about things I'd have to commit crimes to own.

Or any advice on guns that can be modified (with relative ease) would be appreciated.

Looking for ambidextrous controls for the following;
Magazine eject
Rate of fire selection

I expect crap about my age to a certain extent but be gentle, now that I'm 18 you may just meet me on the field some day. Joking aside; thanks in advance for the help!

Kraken is 140 after tax. put a polycarbonate piston into it, stainless bushings, nozzle, ball bearing pisotn head, ball bearing spring guide...all these upgrades for little under 55$, and youll have an awsome gun that will rock ppls panties off.

if you dont want to upgrade or tweak around, go for a KWA m4, its 500, get verified and ull see ppl selling them, its the best bang for the buck.

get verified so that people who have too much time on their hands dont flame u.

enjoy.

most heckler and koch guns have ambidextrous controls, MP5, G36 etc
the P90 and FN2000 are also, as for what brand, you will need to do your own research to decide which to get. when you are ready to buy, get verified and buy from the classifieds.

Steyr AUG.
the symetrical selection system like on HK guns gets in the way of my fingers - the Steyr doesn't have any physical selector.
mag eject is centered on many guns including HKs and Steyr so it's less critical.

You can easily buy ambidextrous mag releases for armalites also. However the fire selector cannot be made ambidextrous.

HKs (both pistols and rifles) are a safe bet as someone else said.

I'm curious as to why this feature is so important to you. I shoot mostly lefty, but am actually close to ambidextrous and have had no problem with the AS guns I use.

M14 has a mag release in the center of the gun, back of the mag.

Fire select, right side (only I believe, could be wrong).

SCAR has ambi mag release and selector switch on the VFC version plus a charging handle that can be swapped from Left to Right. Bolt hold open catch is for righties only.

As stated most H&K guns are ambi, however for airsoft save for bolt actions left handed use of a right handed gun is not that big of a deal or annoying.
