    Oh bugger. I was going to buy this for my new rifle... already have one of these scopes and like it a lot. But the finish is too glossy for a "matte", and the writing on the Gold Ring is not centered.

    As @dogmatix said, it's a very good knock off! Anyone who hadn't owned the real thing would never know.

    Leupold came back, it's a fake. Have attempted to contact the previous owner, no reply, if he doesn't make contact will put his details up as he may be known to another member, he's Hamilton based.

    Mate that's real frustrating. Didn't pick it to be a fake either.
    Will definately be looking hard at my next leupold purchase.
    Work less hunt more!

    Great thing about Leupold, they do a serial # check almost instantly during their working hours.

    Will give him another 24 hours to call, but think he has "disappeared". Know are fair bit about him, Book Face can have it's uses sometimes especially when you show your work place on it.

    Unfortunate that. I don't trust any Leupold scopes now at first. CDS seems to be too much for the fakes to copy. In saying that sometimes there are manufacturing issue. I brought a Bushnell Red Dot from the bargain bin at Cabelas in the states and when I went to sold it found out it was a fake and as far as I can tell is that someone brought the real one returned the fake one in its place for a refund and I brought the fake at a discount. Sad thing these days you can't trust anything.
