Glock sucks at making external safties?

A while back in my Plaxico Burress gets 2 years for being a dumbass blog entry I had this picture which detailed how Glock trigger lock thumb safety looks and works:

Well apparently this is only proof of concept, because in real life it appears Glock can’t make a gun with the lock on it that works reliably.  Seems like a pretty simple modification, So much for perfection!

They had magazines randomly falling out of the guns, magazines refusing to drop out when the mag release was pressed, brass being ejected into the shooters face and just plain failing to cycle.

Can you tell me where this ad came from? I thought the Glock manual safety was a new concept, but the ad is from 2007.

Hi Mike,
I have had the picture saved on my computer for well over a year so I’m not sure where it came from anymore.
