Not familiar with the gun...So can't answer for sure.

I have seen a few 22lrs that enter the chamber at steep angles that you wouldn't think would feed reliably.

Did they do something goofey to be different? Maybe...
Not sure if serious. Not clever enough for actual trolling.....

Didn't HK have an add years ago with a pistol-mag inserted backwards? Or was that Sig too?

I feel like that was a meme. Maybe someone at HK was just trying to be funny and see if they could get a meme on the cover.

I had 3 Indian looking dudes in the next lane trying to shoot a Sig they had loaded like that. Turns out a Sig isn't ACTUALLY 100% jam proof.

I was just making a funny.
Didn't expect a gun retailer like Simpsons to make these kinds of mistakes... then again, just like in the case of HK booklet, the guys that take photos may not actually be gun guys.

Now with a cop on the cover... that is a whole different story.

who ever was in charge of putting the mag in the firearm clearly doesn't know anything about them. keep in mind this is going to be the same person who puts it in a box and ships it to you.

Dammit...they fixed it...

I didn't get to save the image. Either someone on Calguns tipped them off....or they go on Calguns. Could have had a warranty claim on light primer strikes...
