No, these images were not inadvertently reversed or digitally doctored. They accurately depict a left-hand M14-style semi-automatic rifle currently available from and manufactured by Bula Defense Systems in Cleveland, Ohio. More than a significant feat of reverse mechanical engineering, the Bula M14LH rifle is a true first since the Garand-based M14 was originally adopted by the U.S. military in 1957. It is also, of course, a godsend for southpaws, transposing the locations of the charging handle, ejector and extractor so that left-handed shooters can shoulder and fire an M14-style rifle in an entirely natural manner. According to Jeff Miller, president of Bula Defense Systems, the project presented a few unexpected challenges, such as the development of a reversed magazine follower, but it also allowed the company to employ some of the parts that it already manufactured for its right-hand models. And, no, the rear sight pinion assembly was not reversed—a detail that shouldn’t bother even the most ardent lefties.
