Any suggestions for pistols for left-handers? Looked at a M&P 40 while in Vermont over the weekend - and I like it's ambidextrous set-up... and the price seemed right. Any other brands/models?
You are correct, sir!Don't be fooled by the gen 4 glock. Although you can switch the mag release to be on the right side of the frame, i'm pretty sure that you have to have the latest gen glock mags with the notch in the front, meaning you can't use preban mags with the mag release on that side. I guess it doesn't matter if you are talking about a 26 or 27 (if they even come in 4th gen models) but a G19 or similar will suck to have and only use 10 round mags because you switched the release.
Awesome idea but how many parts on it are specialized vs. being able to use stock parts from any vendor that sells them for right handed 1911s.In 1984 the Randall Firearm Company started producing a left handed 1911 pistol that was a mirror image of a right handed pistol, to the extent that the spent casings extracted out of the left side of the slide.

They are rare and expensive, but they are true left handed pistols.
