Default American Rifleman K22 Error?

This month's magazine has a nice article (April, 2020, page 41) about a reader's first experience with a 1941 K-22, called "A Cattail and a K-22". Nice story, but the accompanying photo does not appear to be a 1940-ish K22; neither an Outdoorsman nor a Masterpiece. Rather, it appears to me to be a post-war, improved I-frame 22/32 kit gun with some anomalies. Specifically pre-war grips, a Shared front sight, main spring tension screw with a fifth screw in front of the trigger guard (I thought that Imp-I's had coil springs). No big surprise and no big deal that NRA may have applied an incorrect photo, but with so much time on my hands what with this CV19 virus quarantine business, such errors provoked my curiosity. Am I wrong with my assessment of this photo? Hopefully some kit-gun and/or K22 experts will opine. Thanks - S2
