maybe i should have been more clear. what they did was take the real thing, and made a mirror image of it. all the weapons are mirror images of their left hand counterpart. all the bolts, mechanisms, ejection ports, are facing inward to make it interesting... no one wants to see the boring side of the gun - or at least thats what the cs development team thought.
think about it... in real life, on a right hand bolt action rifle, the bolt is on the right side of the gun. you hold the rifle with your left, and pull the trigger and operate the bolt with your right hand. not so, in CSS.
