As Gear Report’s lead tester Josejuan will tell you, it can be rather challenging to find ANY left handed AR parts. It is a real bonus when the left handed parts are also innovative.
We have detailed our Gibbz Arms G4 builds before:

However, we think the G4 Left Handed side charging upper is special enough to warrant a video review of the completed build.

Gibbz Arms G4 Left Handed side charge receiver ar15 review left sideAs a right handed shooter, I have to be REALLY careful when shooting the Gibbz Arms G4 Left Hand Side Charge AR15 Upper Receiver Build since it lacks the large brass deflector present on most AR15s. This means that hot brass might bounce off of my cheek if I am not diligent in holding a solid cheek weld, to keep my face out of the direct line of ejection. It is probably worth tweaking the JP Enterprises adjustable gas block to see if we can get the brass ejecting a bit more forward.

The Gibbz Arms G4 side charging upper impressed us with craftsmanship, innovation and functionality. We recommend the G4 as a great option, especially for left handed shooters. +1/2 point for making a Left Hand version.
