Thread: Fake leupold MK4 on guntrader.

  1. #1

    Fake leupold MK4 on guntrader.

    Just thought I would let you all know that there is a Leupold MK4 scope on guntrader for sale and I believe it is a fake.

    I just want to warn all fellow SD members before they think they are getting a good deal. If someone thinks this is real please say so and I will eat humble pie and admit I was wrong.

    Here is the suspect item - http://www.guntrader.co.uk/Equipment...20404121724001

    Info from Leupold - http://www.leupold.com/corporate/res...rfeit-warning/

    I'd be most suprised if Gilsland Sports were knowingly party to selling counterfeit goods

    Looked at the item and can't really make out how you tell it's a fake or not. I have emailed the seller to let them know that there are concerns about the scopes authenticity - hopefully if it's dodgy they'll do the right thing

    Proof on these fakes is that they all have the same serial number 9999SC. Showing a picture of the underside of the scope would confirm this. Although the white writing on the objective bell and the printed on logo are confirmation enough to me that this example is a fake.

    The Leupold site says the writing on the black ring on the objective should be etched in black.

    Unusual for the Chinese forgers to get details like that wrong!
