    Mine shoots both when I for one I knew I was going to be changing stuff on it so went for the cheapest good quality one it was a NEA on special like most things American it worked but my view is they focus more on the accessory market so you can make it work how its supposed to if I had the money I'd get a SIG or similar

    So what's out there, (buyers market now in theory) never had one before so complete newbie to the ar15 world.... School me please!

    Would have to be a cat as still haven't got round to getting endorsements
    Something to perhaps be aware of my suppressed one has a gas piston system my other unsuppressed one does not.
    The piston one is better to shoot and set up with the suppressor its also cleaner after use Stag arms model 8 my wallaby buster.
    Unsuppressed Daniel Defence MK12 my service rifle tool of choice.
    Piston or direct impingement I went piston for a suppressor.
    Something you may want to consider.
    You can also use one lower with a good trigger and multiple uppers.

    The other option is to get an adjustable gas block and reduce the amount of gas coming through your system with a supressor (thats what I did). If budget is a concern then it may pay to weigh up the price difference between a piston upper and an adjustable gas block.

    We sometimes shoot over our dogs and the AR's are bloody noisy especially with a muzzle break, I use the suppressed one for all my hunting over or around our dogs.

    A fair point something else to consider.

    @223nut - I see nzar15 is advertising a left handed option for 1800 at the moment if its a sticking point.

    Cheers for the heads up, going by the comments in this thread it's not a sticking point. Funds for this project have been diverted for the meantime

    Haha that's showing your age @kotuku the case deflector on M16A2s and newer sort this problem. Shooting a C9 left handed Rambo style has a risk of the case going down the shirt sleeve and cooking against your skin! Ouch
