Saw some older posts mentioning this but can anyone confirm. Seller can’t find any numbers on it and when I type in the model it instantly comes up on wish and alibaba. It looks very fake-ish to me. Just says Carl zeiss 4-16x50 aomc on it and I’ve only dealt with newer model zeiss.

Do not buy it, it’s a fake. I ran into the same issue a few months back. The picture of the scopes looks just like the “2” I had issues with. I called Zeiss customer service and the gentleman told me that Zeiss never made a scope with the AOMC reticle. He even told me what the serial number was on my scope. Said the company producing the scopes used the same serial number on all the scopes. Ask the seller for the serial number if the last 4 numbers are 1906. It’s a fake for sure. I wasted a lot of bullets, powder and time before I figured it out.

Here is a pic of the ones I had. Hope this helps out.
Yep that’s it, they told me the same cause I emailed them and messaged them on fb and hadn’t heard a reply so I called them and the lady said it was a fake. She also said the biggest sign to tell it other than serial was that the scope had a red and green reticle and apparently zeiss only used a red reticle. Needless to say I did not buy it, thanks for the help guys.

Dang, sorry I mislead. Not intended for sure. Your experience definitely saved some headache for sure.
No worries, only reason I was skeptical was I was supposed to trade a vortex viper for a Glock 44 and the waited to long. Hit the guy up a few days later after I forgot to reply and told me someone had slipped him a fake zeiss for his gun.
