Well they're not milspec. The tube looks slanted in the rear, indicative of commercial spec.

I'd venture to guess they are made in china. Only a matter of time for anything to be copied over there. The price would make me think that off the bat.

I agree with this.

One clue is the commercial receiver extension. SOPMODs have a tight fit on mil-spec extensions, so I don't see how a real one would fit on a commercial tube without a hammer.

Your are dead on. The real LMT's SOPMOD is as tight as I have ever seen.

I hate it when we get this influx of subpar crap.

I picked up a knock off at a local gun show for $15. Why? To see if I liked the way it felt. It fit fine on a MILSPEC tube, and looked great. Then extended the stock, then slammed the rifle on the ground on the stock, slid all the way to the receiver with very little resistance.

Don't buy knockoff for a real rifle. I had no intentions of ever shooting with that stock. you will regret it.

Not that I'm advocating buying knock offs, but an LMT would have done the same thing. I've seen lots of guys shear the pin in their stocks trying to clear a stuck case and forgetting to collapse the stock.

I now have an LMT sopmod and it does NOT do that when I slam it on the ground.

YMMV
