ass-alt weapon?

What's wrong with this picture?

It's either pure dumbassery, good photoshopping or the latest idea in trigger-locks.


Might NOT fire when the striker hits the hollowpoint?

If it's not good photoshopping, it's one of those things that should end with "priceless"!

Might work if you put the mag in backwards.
Nope, just tried it on my Model 92, doesn't work.

I believe it's real - those were brochures from the SHOT show a couple of years ago.

I have always been more or less of a wheelgun man. Still, in a lifetime of foolin' around with shootin' irons I can't recall ever being able to load a magazine with the cartridges backwards, they just wouldn't go.
Oh well, there are a lot of autoloaders I never handled. I shall grant the possibility.

H&K of all manufacturers. I'm shocked. It must be sabotage. Who could be that stupid? Probably some pansy little lefty photog did it for shits and giggles.

Peter, trust me--- about loading the bullets backward in a magazine... I uh..... did that.... I mean I TRIED that once just to see if it could be done.

It can.

And Dan is correct--- the mag won't go in backward.

Plus, it looks like a double stack mag, in a single stack grip.

Looks like someone at H-K caught it. The exact image (with the magazine cropped out) is on the H-K home page.

"it looks like a double stack mag, in a single stack grip."

That's a USP.
Double-stack mags are standard in all calibers.

15 shouldn't have taken me that long to see it.
