Title says it all. Do I need to buy two bullet buttons or how does this work? I'm a lefty shooter. Thanks.

If you are building a fixed magazine rifle you must not be able to drop the mag without the use of a tool. I have yet to see any BB for the left side of an ambi release. You will likely have to remove the ambi release and run a standard release with BB.

If you can drop your mag without the use of a tool...it's not considered a fixed magazine rifle.

Featureless would be a good option.

It's a bullet button, you're not going to be able to drop the mag fast anyway, so you might as well forgo the ambi and just use it on the right side. If, for some reason, you need to be able to swap mags fast, such as running a carbine class or playing 3 gun, featureless is the better option (and a mini14 an even better option)

This is correct. AFAIK no one makes a ambi mag release that uses a tool to release on the left side.

I wish they did, as having one on the left side is actually more convenient for bench rest type guys.
