An employee at a local sporting goods store told us about a customer that recently got too good of deal on a LEUPOLD rifle scope at a gun show. Scope was counterfeit. The seller was off to the next bazaar and fresh crop of pigeons, and the buyer had no recourse. LEUPOLD has no obligation to replace counterfeit scope, nor do retailer. If you're lucky, your ersatz LEUPOLD is serviceable. Even fake Rolex wristwatches keep time for a while, but would you trust such scope on prized draw hunt that you've entered for two decades? I wouldn't. Most counterfeit Leupolds are of Chinese origin and are priced sufficiently below the manufacturer's suggested retail price on many websites to be irresistible. They're cheap enough to draw you in, but not so cheap to scare you away. Of course, you don't know it's counterfeit until you've paid for the item and have it in hand. On LEUPOLD. Com, LEUPOLD issues warning against purchasing LEUPOLD-label optics from wish. Com, ioffer. Com, aliexpress. Com, alibaba. Com and many others. Most commonly counterfeit products, according to LEUPOLD, mimic Mark 4 rifle scopes, VX-III rifle scopes, Prismatic rifle scopes, CQ / T rifle scopes, LCO sights and Deltapoint Pro sights. Products are illegally imported from the People's Republic of China, which is a profligate violator of patent and trademark rights. LEUPOLD's warning say, these fake products bear many of the trademarks and trade dress of current LEUPOLD & Stevens rifle scopes, and are sometimes difficult to distinguish externally from authentic LEUPOLD products. Regrettably, owners learn the truth when they send faulty products to LEUPOLD for warranty service. LEUPOLD is famous for its full Life Guarantee, but it will not service counterfeit products. Counterfeit experience can sour victimize buyer on company, phenomenon to which LEUPOLD is sensitive. All LEUPOLD rifle scopes bear an individual serial number that's engraved on the bottom of the turret. Counterfeit scopes often use fake serial numbers, all identical serial numbers, or incorrect numbering convention. A date code is a quick way to assure authenticity. Since 1974, every LEUPOLD scope include letter in serial number as date-code. Scopes with letters at the beginning of serial number were produced between 1974 and 1992. You are unlikely to encounter counterfeits from this era because those scopes are relatively inexpensive. Scopes with letters at the end of serial number were produced after 1992. Since 2014, serial suffix contains two letters, always beginning with. AA is 2014, AB is 2015, and so on. LEUPOLD does not use the letters I, O, and Q in its serial numbers because they are easily mistake for 1, 0, and 0. If the scope has these letters in serial number, it's fake. If it does not contain a letter on end, it's fake. LEUPOLD scopes bear distinctive physical characteristics. The gold ring near the end of the objective bell is a well-know trademark. It's actual metal ring, not decal.
