Who makes LH twist AR barrels??

While cleaning the ones I took shooting recently, I noticed that my "hunting" upper has a left hand twist (counter clockwise). All of my other 223 barrels have a right hand (clockwise) twist. AAMOF, the only other LH twist barrels I have are from TC.

So, anyone have any idea who makes LH twist AR barrels???

I got this upper in a trade and have no clue on who made any of it, other than the muzzle brake and MOE hand guards that I've added to it.

    I think those are only made in the Southern Hemisphere because they won't work right up here, ya know because of the way the earth turns and all.....

    Colt has been notorious for about forever rifling barrels with left hand twist.
