    Thanks for any help.

    it doesn't look quite right. the colors seem a bit off and a tritium warning on an led model seems odd. the front sight fit is off. my wa guess is not real.

    I believe what you have there is a counterfeit ACOG. The “Trijicon ACOG” printed on the side is the first clue. Second, there are no serial numbers on the top. Did the seller advertise it as the real deal?

    Definitely a fake. Everything is wrong; from the markings, to the turrets, to the mount, to the lack of serial number, to the overall construction.

    A fake by all aspects.
