Thread: Fake Leupold ???

    Fake Leupold ???

    My dad has just brought a second hand ruger m77 and it came with a leupold mark 4 3.5-10x50 M1 illuminated.

    After searching the web I am unable to find a leupold mark 4 3.5-10x50 all of the ones I have found have an objective of 40. Also I looked on leupold's website and they have a counterfeit page and some of the things match up. Another thing is we were at the range today and when I looked through the scope it just did not seem to be as clear as other scopes, this is what made me think something was wrong.

    If possible can you post some pictures of your genuine mark 4's please or email me the pics to peteabbotson@yahoo.co.uk

    I will try and get some pictures soon although I don't know when I'll see it next.

    Sounds like you have one.

    I'm afraid that moody Leupolds have been around for a long time. They are not much like the real thing and anyone in the guntrade should be able to tell the difference at a glance. Unless your Dad got the package at such a good price that the value of the scope is irrelevant, he should take it straight back to the seller. These scopes are worthless and usually either go for 20 on ebay or are withdrawn once the ebay administrators are made aware that they are bent. JC

    I've had two fakes off ebay, one I sent back and reported and the other does nicely on the rimfire since it was cheap anyway but reported and got a refund.... By a fake, report it, get refunded and keep the scope!

    If it's got white writing it's not a Leupold

    The magnification and objective size should be etched onto the tube in black
