Converted my AR for left hand

Postby Stefan » 29 Sep 2014, 13:31

Hi,
just to post pics of a left hand conversion of my Air Ranger. .177 12 ft/lbs

I made a new actuator mirror like to the one that my AR came in from from aluminium so it can index working on the left side.
Replaced those anti-tamper screws in the back of the breech. Replaced the sloted screws on the middle of the breech with allen head ones.
And I have made a left hand bolt. Its a bit bigger than the original, but hey, that's the first one :)
All done on my mini lathe and mini mill and a rotary table.
Indexing seems to be working properly.
Now I have to set up the scope and shoot some groups :D

Very nice work there !
Although am lost, the mag will index no matter what side the mag is loaded from as far as am awear ! :?
I understand the getting rid of the anti-tamper if your happy to take them appart.
And the new bolt knob looks nice, bigger is better IMO especally in the cold !

mag will index, thats right, but the blot handle would go in a wrong direction if I didnt make the mirrored actuator.

the ones in the middle I had to reshape/resize standard ones.
those on the back of the breech, I ordered from some US website (I can look into that again and let you know)

Welcome to the forum Stefan.

You've done a nice tidy job there, good to see another rifle converted to shoot from the correct shoulder 8-) .

I'm sure other forum members would be interested in what size allen bolts etc that you used, someone will probably have a UK source.

Nice photos, well lit and in focus!

Happy shooting.

thanks :)

the ones on the back of the breech are socket cap #6-40 x 3/4". And you will need some AT tool. Those in the middle are socket flat head #6-40 x 1/2" but one will have to turn down the head diameter by a aprox. 1,5 mm and keep the same angle to fit in.

also, here is the list of all o-rings needed for AR

1X N006
1X N112
1X N617
1X N111
1X113
2X N008
1X 003 (.177) OR 004 (.22)
