Ok, I hope you guys have now finished trying to point the finger at a genuine seller and honest member trying to sell a Genuine Leupold scope. Very quick to suggest its a fake with absolutely no knowledge of what one is exactly, even you could have contacted Leupold but no, you knew what you would find.
I have been in touch with Leupold, sending them pictures etc and they confirm that as I have said and new all along that this is a Genuine Leupold MK4.
If anyone potential buyer wants to verify this scope Leupold have said to contact them with the serial number, and why not send them the pictures as I am sure they would love too see them again.
I also pointed out that their counterfeit page is not up to date with the current markings that the newer scopes now carry. They have told me that they will get this updated at some point.
"My apologies. The website at times does not keep up with product changes, and sometimes here in Tech Services, product changes may take place which we learn about after the fact. We'll see if our IT Department can change the verbage on our website. If you're trying to move that scope, have potential buyers call us for serial # verification."
My scope has white writing, you will find that all the newer stock does. The rings now carry white writing with the word 'Leupold' on them where the fakes do not have 'Leupold' on them at all, the info in the photo you see is repeated three times around the ring. Mine as you see has Leupold in the info and I can assure you it is repeated three times.
You will also notice that the Fakes do not have a 'Gold Medallion' where mine has got the Medallion.
The base has the Serial number AND the QR barcode as is also another thing that the Fakes do not.
The fakes that I have seen do not have a Box, Manuals, Leupold Covers, Leupold Sticker or even the Leupold key ring, where mine does. A scan of the Box Barcode even brings it up as exactly what it is on the net.
So here are the photo's I sent to Leupold, I also have attached the Medallion photo. As I said , why not send them to Leupold with your verification request as an added measure.
I have nothing to hide it is a genuine scope as I was careful to ensure in the first place as I am no idiot when it comes to spending a small fortune. I have now proven this to be genuine and potential buyers can find out as much from Leupold and I resent the fact that some on here thought I would be pushing such an item. Thanks for trying to ruin an honest sale.
So lets start again - GENUINE, yes GENUINE MK4 - Bought new in June from Scott at the Rifle store in the US, Illuminated TMR Reticle, 30mm Tube, M1 Turrets 1/4 MOA adjustment, Boxed with all the bits, plus 2.5" Sunshade with Packaging.
