So I too don't get the slide release on the right side. On the left side the mechanism is small and very near the rear. When you look at the right side you see that it looks like it's a hinge to rotate a mechanism several inches forward. Why wouldn't both releases be near the rear?

Agreed...to me the pistol should have uniform mechanics.

 

I'm not a lefty, but maybe H&K tested it and lefties prefer it that way? Can any lefty chime in?

Observe and read steps 3 and 4. the right side lever is also the axle for the trigger spring. looks like they took that as the easiest route to get the lever's action over to the left side of the gun.

 

edit: actually if you read farther down to the reassembly guide, you'll see the right side release axle actually retains A LOT of stuff inside the gun.
