Putting your best Photo forward

Petersen's Rifle Shooter; a member of the Guns & Ammo Network, recently ran a review of the Colt LE901-16s. I was eager to read the author's take on the 5.56/7.62 rifle but was instantly disheartened by the reviews lead photograph.


Lead photo on 'Switcheroo: Colt LE901-16S Review' :(
It shows the Colt LE901-16s (in its 7.62 configuration) with a Leupold optic mounted backwards.

This is not the first or the last goof but something that is easily avoidable by the keen eye. One of the most famous instances was the cover of the HK Catalog which had rounds loaded backwards in a magazine.

This is an important example of first impressions. The written part of the review is quite good :)

  1. The picture is too small to easily figure out what the issue is.
    My best guess is that it has to do with the magazine, but I'm not too familiar with 7.62 mags either.

    1. Seriously? Even if you can't see it, read the article and it tells you.
