Why I am not a fan of the "Forward Assist".1. Interferes with ambi 2. Induces malfunctions3. Is not needed.
My uncertain, counter opinion from the "Bullseyes Don't Shoot Back" perspective.

Early Ambi

Early in my ambi advocacy, the Mini 14
I really like the Ruger Mini-14's perfectly mirrored safety (i.e., it works exactly the same left or right). Same for the mag release. Charging handle is no ambi, but that is not as critical as the other controls.
Some early ambi run 'n gun videos.
Doing the Army Qualification Test shooting half left handed, half right using the Henry lever action 22.
