Does anybody make a 308 lefthanded AR type rifle with a 24" barrel?

I believe Stag arms has a couple. I have no experience with them though...never mind you said .308

Depends on your definition of "lefthanded".

AR10's are .308 and ambi Ar15 controls often fit them.
Stag ambi safety
BCM charging handle (comes in a .308 size)
Troy mag release (coming soon)
magpul bad lever

Left side ejection- no. Not needed anyway. I'm primarilly a lefty, I shoot standard AR's with ambi controls. Tactical rifles should be used with both arms/eyes, so don't let which side the case ejects out of influence your decision. Just research ambi controls instead.

I am left handed and have narrow feet. I have heard 1000's of time WHEN THE STORE DOES NOT SELL A WIDTH SHOES, these run narrow. THEY NEVER DO. The same with left handed persons shooting right handed rifles. The cast is a problem, controls an issue and the ejection port a biggest problem. I shot right handed rifles for years I am old but in the past 25 years left handed models have become more available. To my knowledge and I have been looking for one for years there are no 308's in left hand. Stag makes a 223 in left hand. There are also no left handed 20 ga's either.

On an AR style weapon there is no cast built into the gun,so it doesn't matter which hand you shoot.
I own several,and I shoot lefty,and have never had an issue with brass coming out the ejection ports or operating the controls.

On shotguns,get a Browning BPS or an Ithaca 37 20ga pump. Both are bottom load/eject,so either are left handed or right handed.
Remington used to make the 870 & 1100 in left handed 20ga-find a used one.

Get an M1A....

The AR-type is inherently righty, and since i prefer my Mini to my AR, when i looked for a semi .308, M1A is the obvious choice.

Also, FAL-types are the worst for lefties.

On shotguns, are you guys just referring to autoloaders and pumps? I've never had nearly the issues with running any type of shotgun lefty as i have with most rifle types.
