I am left handed. Is the bolt the only mod. needed for left handed shooting??? TIA. Doug.
PS, a LONG time ago, shouldered a FA Aug, thought to myself, something doesn't feel right. Thank the LORD I didn't pull the trigger. Ultra cool gun.

I had a left-handed friend ask to shoot mine (set up right-handed) out at the range one day several years ago.

I wasn't paying much attention as he was shuffling stuff around on the shooting bench and just happened to look up just as he was ready to touch off the first round, with his cheek right over the ejection port. I yelled for him to stop and, luckily, my yell didn't make his trigger finger flinch (well, then again, the original Steyr AUG is not known for a really sensitive trigger :) ).

I'm sure that the rifle would have ejected the cartridge case right through his cheek. Who knows what damage might have also been done to his teeth.

So, Yes, it is something to 'worry' about when you let others shoot your AUG...

Remember: only the AUG that uses the original cartridge can be switched to lefty mode.

If I were in your shoes, I would get the lefty bolt, swap it, and shove the righty bolt in the buttstock.
