Re: I think someone is getting the shaft on this one

I went and looked and you guys are right, some have the gold ring, some don't. All the conventional rifle scopes do. The Tactical ones don't. My benchrest does.

I'd still like to know where Leupold gets their internals. I wonder if, like Vortex, the glass is LOE and the internals are sourced whereever.....

The markup on optics is insane anyway.

I keep getting spam mails from an outfit that does watches so I bit and ordered one, A Rolex Oyster day-date in stainless. I have a Rolex, a real Oyster day-date and putting the watches side by side, you can't tell the difference, even the second hand moves in the trademark 1/3 second movement, just like the original. Only difference is I paid 150 bucks for the imposter and 4500 for the real thing. Even the wristband has the same links and the Rolex trademark on each segment and the clasp.

I'm sure a Rolex dealer can tell, but I can't.

Interesting how well the orientals can copy something.

I leave the good one at home in the safe and wear the imposter, only I know.

Re: I think someone is getting the shaft on this one

The ad is still on Flea Bay btw and the price is up to 305 bucks...

Interestingly, this is the blurb attached to the ad.....

"Lnib. Leupold Mark 4 Lrt style long range hunting scope. 4.5-14x50. Illuminated recticle. Scope rings, lens cloth, and scope cover. For those who want the look, feel, and performance of one of the best rifle scopes EVER made , but can"t afford the $1200 price tag, this inert dosplay model is for you.

Make note of the last 2 lines. Inert Display Model....

That tells me there is nothing inside the tube, no lenses, no erector, nothing.

305 bucks for an empty tube..... you gotta be kidding me....

Someone is gonna be PO'd

It seems like a good lesson for the bidder to read ALL of the text when bidding on any ebay item.
At least this seller was honest.

Re: I think someone is getting the shaft on this one

fleebay is a decent source sometimes but it is always full of that crap "mark 4 style" "eotech style" etc. etc. Hundreds of knock off junk copies of everything all the time. Hiting the bid button is just like putting cash on the counter, you had better already know what your buying.
