We investigate left-right symmetric extensions of the standard model based on open strings ending on D-branes, with gauge bosons due to strings attached to stacks of D-branes and chiral matter due to strings stretching between intersecting D-branes. The left-handed and right-handed fermions transform as doublets under Sp(1)(L) and Sp(1)(R), and so their masses must be generated by the introduction of Higgs fields in a bifundamental (2,2) representation under the two Sp(1) gauge groups. For such D-brane configurations the left-right symmetry must be broken by Higgs fields in the doublet representation of Sp(1)(R) and therefore Majorana mass terms are suppressed by some higher physics scale. The left-handed and right-handed neutrinos pair up to form Dirac fermions which control the decay widths of the right-handed W' boson to yield comparable branching fractions into dilepton and dijet channels. Using the most recent searches at LHC13 Run II with 2016 data we constrain the (g(R), m(W)')parameter space. Our analysis indicates that independent of the coupling strength g(R), gauge bosons with masses m(W)' greater than or similar to 3.5 TeV are not ruled out. As the LHC is just beginning to probe the TeV scale, significant room for W' discovery remains.
