H&K and Backwards Bullets: The Real Story

4182 ratings | 207071 views
You know that running gag on the web where if someone buys a Heckler and Koch product, they show the rounds loaded in the magazines backwards? Well it’s almost a “must do” if you buy a new HK gun, but still a lot of people ask why or snicker and tell the poster that they have made an error. In this video, we try to tell the real story behind the notorious catalog blunder. Many THANKS to: Ventura Munitions: http://bit.ly/1LKxNRP Please Support Them!

HK: So reliable that it can fire rounds backwards. Lol

OR maybe it was on purpose....as a subtle protest towards the ever increaseing backwards ideals going on about firearms in the media and politics, and about how all of it seems to want to "reverse" our rights as American citizens. Or the photo guy just F-ed up.

i can see why the photographer did it though...probably just loaded in a way that the rounds went in easiest, figuring that was how ti would go...

113 people put the bullets in backwards.

The photos of their holster(s) on HKParts.net also shows the gun in the holster just plain wrong. I love my H&Ks, and it's good to know that the price premium is being spent on product genius, and not necessarily marketing genius. https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/catalog/A/HKP-17506/D/Belt-Loop-Holster-UM-Tactical-LH-1.jpg
Oh, I thought this meant how the P90 is loaded weird. I was wondering why they had worded the title like that!

Even if you aren't a "gun guy" I still don't understand how the hell you could load rounds into a mag backwards. Frankly if you're capable of doing that, you aren't a man period. Reminds me of my uncle that has to pay me to put together simple pieces of flat pack furniture and thinks anything under the hood of a car is wizardry that cannot be comprehended by ordinary people. He literally was taken aback one day when he came over my house and I was replacing the brake pads on my car. He was so incapable of understanding how I was able to do it that he was concerned the brakes wouldn't be safe because "a mechanic didn't do it". All I could do is slowly shake my head in dismay and walk away. Embarrassing.

Oops! Suspect happens a lot. All kinds of third party contractors are hired by the gun industry - many are no doubt not gun folk.

must be some kind of Nazi SS suicide gun
isellcatlitter (1 year ago)
maybe in slow motion the follower flips the bullet in the air out of the ejection port then catches it in the correct position...lol

buddy of mine did that shit almost pissed myself laughing

Oh, common! Bullets go into chamber nose first, so, of course, they were put into a magazine nose first too. "Makes sense!"(C)
Chico S. (1 year ago)
I was expecting something more along the lines of it being based on safety, you know your at a show, you see a loaded clip and the gun, you decide to go a little crazy and jam the clip in and start shooting... but wait, it won't shoot because the bullets are backwards. .
hi bye (1 year ago)
The Boberg XR9 or the Boberg XR45 loads backwards look it up on youtube
RushDark (1 year ago)
the reason they did this is to hide the bullet manufacturer so they wont get sue for it
theaberrantdon (1 year ago)
Haha. I've seen a picture of that catalogue before. I'm so happy that it's real!

Never heard of HK. Maybe it was a marketing genius. Look how much free advertising they get and all they have to do is let the product speak for itself.

When Texas passed their Concealed Handgun License (CHL) in 1996 (passed 1995, effective 1996), a shooting qualification course was included. The course is intended for those folks that KNOW how to shoot, not train them. We had several sexual intellectuals (effin know it alls) do the same thing AND WORSE. Some how one (thank god he was the only one) actually was able to insert two 9mm rounds in one of his magazines VERTICALLY!!! with two on top in "normal" position. It took me several tries to do the same thing INTENTIONALLY and it was NOT easy!
Trevak D'hal (1 year ago)
I don't have much experience with guns, but I would figure that the bullets would only go one way in most magazines be default (like you could not physically put them in backwards)
Joey Grasso (1 year ago)
I think they should have released the story in one if their articles and just kept the image like that as an inside joke to their their customers and fans

Wait, you had to PAY to get those at the Shot Show??? 5 bucks?? Thanks, Hk. :)
Rax Savvage (1 year ago)
that was it? was expecting it for safety reasons...
The funny thing is,.. is this all the haters can cling on to? A misprint in some obscure literature? Look, it's pretty simple. Glocks are decent guns that work for everyone. H&K weapons are for professionals. Stop trying to find reasons to hate on something. They do different jobs. They both can kill you. Really, this is just a funny little mistake and it makes a great inside joke to do with your own pictures. lol.

i love to being german we made the best weapons and we can drink beer at the age of 16 and we have no Humor and our Government is shity af and our weapon law are stupid we are able to own guns but it is like California our Army sucks harder than a hooker it fucking sucks being german that time i want to be murican

What better way to keep a gun from firing or the mag from being loaded into the gun when it is being handled by a group of inexperienced people
Cory McNevin (1 year ago)
Wait... They just gave a photographer a gun, magazine and some ammo and said "make this look good on camera, figure it out yourself."?

I literally pulled out my USP and tried this while watching the video...soo strange they even fit in backwards:/
TheGacou (1 year ago)
heckler and kochrr pronounced. (same "r" as "reh"). (Heckler and Corps could be almost accurate in english audition).
ironcityblue (1 year ago)
So reliable it feeds backwards. Plus when the primer strikes the target it does additional damage.

Heckler & Cook :3

This isn't so bad. This is a one time funny mistake. Have you ever seen a computer commercial? You might notice they always put the disc upside down into the drive. This has been going on for years and nobody has noticed yet.
tracembait (1 year ago)
I'm pretty sure that their just so damn reliable that it'll still work loaded wrong. lol
K Holm (1 year ago)
Outstanding. Long time running joke on many forums. I'd give my left, right and center for one of those brochures. Just to frame and hang in the fun room...
Eusie Short (1 year ago)
Glad to hear someone who pronounces Heckler & Koch correctly. Most people think it's "Cock" or "Coach" when it's actually pronounced "Coke". And yea, you won't get much reliability with your rounds loaded backwards.
Don Olypopper (1 year ago)

Apparently HK thinks that's a Boberg XR9...
Douglas Schwirtz (1 year ago)
stupid video
Michael Foye (1 year ago)
How many Heckler & Koch engineers are working tirelessly to develop the gun which will load by pulling the round out of the magazine rather than pushing it forward? R & D just got a lot more unnecessarily complicated at HK..
Corey a (1 year ago)
the camera guy did it
martialme84 (1 year ago)
Love your content. In case you are interested: The way you say "Heckler and Koch" sounds absolutely nothing like it should be said in German. Just like the brand "Porsche", the name of H&K gets absolutely butchered to death by many americans.
molon labe (1 year ago)
New Hampshire didnt do much for Sig Sauer. Lets hope their move will include a return to quality effort.
techsimmons (1 year ago)
I wonder if this stunt gave them more publicity.
poot111111 (1 year ago)
And they charged 5.00$ for the catalog without proofing it, really H&K
AR-Gaming (1 year ago)
Well if the camera guy was not a gun guy maybe he though if i load it backwards it cant kill me / resurrect people

Holy crap was the P7 still being made in 2004?
Lokpyrite (1 year ago)
Sounds like that pic of the female cop with the backward mag in her AR
David Louis (1 year ago)
must be Polish army issue
MattyD10000 (1 year ago)
I saw the P7 in that catalog. Were they still making the P7 in 2004? It seems like every P7 I see on GB is from, like, 1983.
Kaltwasser45 (1 month ago)
The P7's last year was 1997, and the last year for the P7M8 was 2007. A P7M8 was what was in the catalog.
Travis Smith (1 year ago)
Oddly enough, that's why I steered my wife towards a revolver for a defensive weapon. It's rather difficult to put the bullets in backwards.
EricTheCleric (1 year ago)
Almost as funny as the white guy with a black guy's hand in Walther's 2017 catalog.
Scullys Tie (1 year ago)
I couldn't help but notice something else: "Price $5.00" You mean to tell me they were charging people for a damn catalog? Is that normal at SHOT (or, normal circa 2004?) Having done trade show booths before for CES this seems absolutely absurd.
Matthew Caughey (1 year ago)
You know putting the bullets in the magazine backwards is probably the only way you'll manage to make an HK USP or MK-23 mod 0 manage to malfunction and with the MK-23 offensive handgun weapon system I'm not even sure backwards bullets would jam it
Kevon Daye (1 year ago)
It wouldn't surprise me of Boberg designed the XR9 around this. In which case, epic troll Boberg.

why read it heckler and cock its hekler and koh

This wasn't a mistake. HK was just showing off their guns remarkable capability of firing bullets loaded backwards as well
