I was hanging out with the guys from LWRC at SHOT and they showed me their new completely ambidextrous lower receiver. The mag release, bolt catch and selector switch are on both sides of the lower. With this lower, everything can be operated in a familiar manner, no matter which side the weapon is shouldered on. So, not only taking care of left handed shooters, but also making it easier when going offhand for barriers or injury.
This lower can be used with legacy M4 weapon systems, so all of you lefties can grab a new lower and make your life a bit easier. Also, the word is that these lowers will be rolling out with most of their weapon systems in the near future. I’ve always been a huge fan of LWRC. I think they have a phenomenal weapon system and customer service to match. Innovations like this keep coming back.
By the way, they have a great individual officer/military program that gets LEO’s and Active/Reserve military a nice discount on the M6G rifle. You can get more info by visiting their website – www.lwrci.com.
