Left hand bolt handles require left handed receivers.
The cylinder and bolt cap are identical between left and right bolts.

The other thing is to train yourself to use it right handed. There is a good advantage to be able to use a rifle in both hands.
When left handed and firing around a tree on the right hand side, you will often have to expose your entire body (and the same vise versa for a right handed person). If you shoot using both ways, you can keep your body in the cover of the tree. This can also be applicable to using an AEG.
If you are left handed and want to train yourself to hold it right handed, just pick the rifle up in your right hand all the time for the next 3 weeks. Make it a rule for the next 3 weeks and never pick it up in your left hand. Leave the rifle lying around and pick it up and cycle it 2-3 times daily. You should also do this with an AEG if you have one. To start off with it will feel real unnatural. After the first week, you will find that it is pretty easy. By the 3rd week, you will find that both arms are as efficient as each other and as time goes on you may even forget what is your dominant hand when holding a rifle. I quite often flick my m4 from side to side depending on the terrain and objects in front of me. For me each hand is as good as the other. This is well worth learning and you will be able to teach others.
