Whatever you can think of in the "real-world" of gun accessories, sadly, you can find in an airsoft shop / catalog. They have copied everything imaginable. From optics to BUIS, to handguards, to collapsible stocks.

When I see something new in terms of accessories on this site (like the LMT cut carryhandle BUIS when it first came out), give it a month or so and you will surely find an airsoft copy.

I was even amazed when I saw a copy of the Otal 1913 with ARMS throw lever mount. If you look at it from a distance, you would not know it was a knockoff.

Oh well.

It is making me fearful of buying anything on the EE, other than from known sources or suppliers. You never know what kind of crap you are getting. In fact, one of my "KAC 600m" sights I got of the EE is now suspect. It still works, but it burns my ass to think it may be a cheap copy that I paid alot for.
