In all honesty I think all players should learn to shoot with both hands. Most often people who try to shoot right handed and around a right hand turn will expose too much of their body and get hit. It is also a must for cqb... If you want to be effective.

Yes it does, a bit. Just to name a few : sling swivels or attach. points - folding stocks

On my full-stock MP5, the stock sling attach point is on the wrong side.
So I will have to mod a sling to fit my purpose, because all attachements are made for righties.

We can easily compensate, living in a predominant right-handed world has made us south paws extremely adaptative, but having it our way without requiring modifications once in a while would be nice.

Get whatever gun you want to get, and practice. There are tons of left handed shooters out there that don't use ambidextrous weapons.

Being a left handed shooter, i've just learnt to deal with it. There are no "left handed" airsoft guns. (japanese people are racist)

AK's are better for lefties I would think, the selector switch is on the right side of the weapon.

I used to have a G36 and When playing I constantly switched hands based on my position in relation to the cover I was near, so you should try to make off hand shooting natural too, that will help with using alot of weapons that only work well right handed

This is a thing not everyone is aware of or likes to do.

Shooting off hand keeping as much as you can behind cover is a great thing, learning to shoot off hand is such a bitch though hahah.

I'm a rightie but bless/curse with cross dominance. I shoot long arms with my left and sidearms with my right.

Sticking with Armalite, you can choose the DBoys (cheaper) or VFC (expensive) PDW. They're both ambies.

If you happen to like long barrels, you can either get the complete KA SR16-e3 or just get the receiver. Those are hot.

Being an AEG, you'll most probably only needs the ambi mag release, which you can choose from G&P to Dboys aftermarket.

For fire mode selection, well you can try to shoot like Travis Haley and Chris Costa during their support side transition (grip position like a rightie's support hand placement when shooting thumb forward style on sidearm).

Sometimes it's those finer details that makes lefties felt left out. For example would be the swivel positions.

Again, AEGs like KA's SR16 has QD mounts on both sides.

Venturing into other makes, you'll have more options. Both MP5 and G36 is pretty ambies.

AK deserve special mentioning, as they're the only one (in AS world atleast) that have folding stocks to the left.

My tokyo Marui mp7 is a wonderful gun upgraded and can do with left handers,
my best friend is a lefty. Safety, mag release, sling mounts, selector switch on each side. But hop up is on the right side.

Its a wonderful gun for any mission, mine has been upgraded to shoot 350 fps ranges of 225 + feet. so if you do it right way to go you got your self a amazing left gun.
