I'm a lefty and I can use pretty much anything just fine...

No shells flying @ your face works... I can still manipulate the selector just fine with my left thumb on an M4 and I can easily use my right thumb to drop mags as I insert a new one (New mag in right hand)

For AEG MP5 are ambidex. If you use the mag release like an AK. However, the select fire switch usually break easily on the right side (IMO and MY experience). You don't need to pull the bolt so it's ambidex.

And really, do you really think you're going to play with a 'Real handicap' other than a pistol for fast reload (slide catch) any AEG work fine as soon as you pull the trigger.

Your question sound a bit too fast without a bit of research. I'm right ?

Edit : Hope it's not too cold. and sorry i'm french !

No one mentioned an AK/AK variant?

One of the only commonly used guns I see a lefty having an issue with is the L85 because of the location of the mag catch.

I'm left handed, but i have been trained to use my right, it's better that way.

In a typical game you will be switching from left to right anyway.

You don't really have to worry about casings and gas because it's Airsoft.

In real life, a bullpup that ejects below or near the muzzle would be ideal, or a left handed carbine.


Just my opinion........god bless opinions.

SiGs have ambidextrous safeties and mag catches, but I had to be original with the sling mounts

I don't see the problem.

Airsoft guns will not eject hot brass into your face, and the only time my gun goes into "safe mode" is when I am in the "safe zone", therefore no worries about surprise engagements.
