Random Reflection

I just visited the Smith & Wesson website for the first time in a long time, and noticed that, in most of the photos of revolvers, the right side of the revolver is shown, with the barrel pointing to the right. I wonder if that's to avoid showing that stupid hole made by the nanny state internal lock mechanism? I seem to recall that Smith & Wesson used to always photograph their revolvers with the left side facing forward, so you could see the cylinder release and crane mechanism.

I guess that S&W must be unhappy with showing those internal locks, since they have been directly responsible for the boom in used S&W revolvers without them.
