    Another more Bo Lian Qn, why make the lens round shape and make the film/CCD sensor rectangle shape?

    The deflector u mean?

    No, sorry. The ejector hole is fixed, bored on the area around the butt plate. Apparently I was hoping for some kind of 'revolutionary design' that a firer can select either the left or the right in which the ejector hole can be located through a flick of a switch. Apparently not.

    Check this website to find out the design as well as specs on it:

    Right-side extraction only... sux huh? Never in my NS life have I expended my rounds in double quick time. Thanks to auto-firing. Still, da catridge pouch sux. Causes lotsa IAs.

    Not yet.. The exit for cartridge will be block by the face if use it like M-16 with an attachment.

    Bo Liao Answer.. else instead of forming circle, the aperture blades have to form a rectangle shape? And zoom can only be done by push/pull. canot rotate zoom ring.

    The trainer at ITD on our last SAR21 conversion course told all left-handed shooters to suck our thumbs though.

    IIRC, some 30-40+ year old German Exactas (spelling?) were designed for left handers.

    A few years ago, Fuji had a 35mm P&S camera called Zoomdate f2.8 or something that had a 24-50mm f2.8-5.6 lens and two shutter releases on top, which were supposed to be shooting yourself.

    I'd always believed in making full use of things. Guns, camera, what-you-have.
