Now that I look at it, I agree. It does look like its mounted on the upper rail and the image was flipped.

Looks more like:

Jim: Hey Bob! Can you grab an AR15 from the back so we can get a picture of this thing mounted on it for the catalogue?

Bob: Sure thing, here you go!

Jim: Wait, this doesn't have a railed handguard to mount it on.

Bob: :shrug:

Jim: Oh well, let's just mount it to the top rail and flip it around. People won't notice.

Bob: :whistling:

I'm guessing the other reason is that they won't ship ANY AR parts/ slings/ accessories/ etc to California even though they are legal?

i bet that is exactly what went down.

i dont even think the image was flipped. i think they just held the ar upside down and snapped the picture.

took me a second to ben dont worry. didnt notice it until i saw a spring from the cover than it all settled in.


So now a poll proposition. Which one is a worse mistake this OR hk.

my vote hk. cuz we already know that sportsman guide are idiots.

lol..than we would be noticing the tactical tape(electrical tape) they used to attach it to the hand guard.

guys, it was done this way on purpose they are simply reaching out to an untapped market in the US, and those are gang bangers. While everyone else is trying to take their illegal weapons away from the felons these people have simply started to sell them products that will take their already horrible aiming skills and make them much much worse. Instead of all this flaming and hate we should be saluting them as Americans for making the streets a little bit safer by making the gang bangers more inaccurate.

Bravo Zulu!

You got a stamp for that?

Or are rimfire revolvers exempt from AOW laws?


Only real problem I see with that is the light sticks out too far... makes it impossible to get good shot barrel placement for a kill shot :D

They did it.

That's a relatively old photo. First time I saw it was when Problemchild posted it on Dieselplace back in '05, but it's obvious that it's a photo of a magazine cover... that would be a very difficult photoshop to pull off without some obvious signs around the cartridge.

It may be 9mm stuffed into a .40 magazine... I agree that it wasn't easy to do, but they only had to get 2 rounds in there.

Sorry - was VERY real, and I have a multiple copies of that HK product brochure; it wasn't just a magazine cover or ad - that was their own US product brochure, making it even more hilarious. I saved it as I figured one day they would destroy what they had, most people would toss them, and maybe only a few would exist.

And it's also a good conversation piece when anyone quotes that slogan HK uses. :D
