    I am looking for a new Left Hand AR. I know that Stag Arms makes several models. I want a good rifle for coyote hunting. I am left handed so thats of course why I prefer a left handed model. I would like to get something with an 18 - 20 inch bbl. I am looking for something light weight. Not that AR's are really light weight but I dont want more weight than needed.

    I am not really satisfied with Stag Arms. I have friends with Rock River guns and Bushmaster.

    Do you guys know of any other mfg of left handed AR's?

    Stag is the better know source for LH models and the offer the best selection. But DPMS does offer the "Southpaw" A2 variant.

    DPMS: AR-15 Rifles, Parts and Accessories.

    By the way, what did you not like about Stag? I've been looking at them too.

    Good luck,

    Rick

    I have heard that Stag is not that accurate. I have friends that have Rock River guns and they are really accurate. I have only seen one Stag and I was not that impressed with the way it performed (accuracy). Now maybe he was shooting the wrong weight bullet. Maybe his rings were not mounted properly and so on. I know there is a lot that goes into an accurate rifle. It kind of turned me off to them and I then also heard rumors that they lacked accuracy.

    I dont have a lot of info that is solid so I am trying to find out what it true and what is fiction. The one thing I do know is I prefer a left hand gun.

    I might have to go with a right hand gun in the end but I would like to avoid it.
