My buddy really wants to get into airsoft, but he is left handed, and wants to operate all the controls on the right side of the gun. Once again, this is because he is left handed. Does KWA's line of GBB Pistols, or GBB PTP line offer this? Thanks for all your help in advance!

The M9 is almost 100% lefty friendly.  The slide catch is on the left side.  But if you power-stroke or whatever it's called (I do that usually) it doesn't matter.  I believe that is the only pistol that's really completely lefty compatible.  I could be wrong.

Do you mean the slide catch is on the RIGHT side of the weapon meaning a lefty can access it with their thumb? If this is the case, is the magazine release also on the same side?

USP Match has a safety, slide catch, and magazine release all on the right side. The HK45 has every thing on the right side except a safety. Both of these are excellent guns. Unfortunately, both these guns have been discontinued and will be out of stock for good soon.

A good lefty friendly gun is the HK45.  The slide release is on both the left and right sides.  The mag release is also ambidextrous.  The hammer release and safety is only on the left side.  Note: KWA is no longer distributing this model (and all HK models for that matter).  If you want one, get it now!  I have one and I think it's the best of the HK models personally.  Note: If you do get one, KWA will continue to service it and, of course, honor the warranty!

Yep, yep. Still looks like they have some in stock on Evike so I'm going to tell him to hop on it.
