I recently bought another Magpul MS2 sling and it turned out to be a fake. The vendor didn't even realize it was a fake until I informed him, he promptly refunded my money and told me to keep the sling.

The packaging on the fake:





The give aways:

The adjustment buckles

Gold on the real Dark Earth, Black on the fake:



The rivet on the real is solid, hollow on the fake:



The attachment hardware is painted versus anodized:





More hardware differences:

Real on the left, fake on the right:



Tag on the upper is the real, fake is the lower one, notice the bleeding of the colors and the lack of a "trough" for the stitching:



The strap material is thinner on the fake and is improperly "sealed"

Real is on the left, fake on the right:

Stitching is suspect on the fake:

Left is real, right is the fake:





Upper is the real one, lower is the fake:
