A lot of the ads for these scopes on eBay with show the "Leupold" box that the scope comes in to lead you to believe that it is genuine. The knock-off 2-7x33s that my friend bought on eBay came with boxes and box fillers that were, AFAICT, identical copies of genuine Leupold in every way.

I know of one person that bought a fake from Ebay, he called Leupold and got his money back .

Is your reply just poorly worded or did you mean to imply that Leupold sent him his money back?

He verified by the serial number that it was a fake. PayPal refunded his money

Any chance it came off the same production line as the Leupolds but not branded with the Leupold Trademark?

I've had to break a few hearts here in the gun shop telling the hard truth to people regarding their newly purchased counterfeits, mostly "Leupolds" but also a "Swarovski" that the guy proudly paid "half price" for. Even "half price" was $1000....

Besides the price. The band is marked Leupold and all but the serial # location and the number itself had me chuckle.


Email seller Ask for make and serial #?

It's real. It's not a Leupold. The seller missed the lvpo memo.

FAKE!

Nowhere does it say Leupold. It’s a LVPO with no brand name, the golden ring is just a golden colored ring

A guy at a gunshow had a table full of these baby's a few month ago, slightly higher price, but when you picked them up something was not quite right LOL but they seemed pretty darn clear, they might be as good or better as compared to other stuff in that range, and I would not be shocked if they ran off the assembly line with a name brand scope, overrun the order or the original buyer cut back the PO, was in the fishing tackle business for years seen it all the time, order placed, PO cut back, factory closed them out, just looked a bit different.

I didn’t zoom in because I was referring to (unclearly 😀) that the seller made no mention of brand. He ain’t stupid.

It DOES say “you’ll be amazed at the quality” so there is that to consider….
