As for the upper, since I'm a lefty, I am still looking at the Stag model 3 with the railed forend and flip down metal sights. I'm not shooting heavy ammo, so I think the 1:9 twist will be fine. A mil spec buffer and Magpul adj. stock and MBUS flip down sights and I'm good to go. And now for under $1000
I wouldn't worry about a lefty upper and BCG (you do realize you need a lefty bolt carrier group to use a left eject upper right?)

I'm a lefty as well and I'm currently running my custom build which is a standard right hand eject AR. Brass doesn't hit me at all and it is easy to see when i'm empty or if there was an issue.

Building your own, may I suggest the following:

Demo BCM upper complete ($80)
BCM M16 BCG ($140)
Gunfighter charging handle ($45)
For barrels depending on what you want check out BCM or Daniel Defense. I got my 16" mid length gas DD barrelf for $260 or so.

When you decide to step it up even more a lefty upper is going to be harder to sell than a right handed version.

Good point on the lefty vs right. Ive only looked at complete uppers minus the bcg. I'll have to check out your reccomendations.
