I was at a gun show and found a Leupold MK4 LR/T 3.5-10x40 with illuminated mil-dot reticle. It was used, and the guy was asking 350 for it. I didn't have the cash, but I had my Glock 26 that I planned to use as trade. I should have done my homework, because they guy made the trade and I got home to find out it's a chinese counterfeit. I don't know how well it works, as I haven't mounted it on the rifle yet, and I've read a couple reviews saying they aren't too bad, so we'll see. The rifle it's going on is for deer hunting and eventually some F-Class and tactical rifle competition out to 800 yards, so I'm not relying on it for anything earth-shatterinly important, and the G26 was a safe queen anyway, but I still want to string up the guy who made the trade, because I'm pretty sure he knew it wasn't real.
All Leupold tactical optics have a medallion on the left side of the scope on the turret ring band and their company name engraved on the band right by the objective lens. Hopefully I didn't get too screwed.
