Default UQFB Breakers....

Ordered a Milbank 200a meter main with a 175a main breaker from the local SH, had to downsize for solar back feed. Get to the job, the 175 breaker they provided is a Siemens of the same footprint, but completely wrong handle orientation.

The correct 175a main breaker would have been ~$300 . Ended up just getting a 200a eaton and 175a main instead, for less the cost of what the Milbank breaker would have been.

Is Milbank still using those POS Zinsco style UQFB feed thru main breakers, or did my supply house try dumping old inventory on me?

Yeah, Siemens meter mains still use the UFQB breakers, though I doubt they are Zinsco quality.
