What's up with all the $49 Matech BUIS on eBay. Are these the real USGI deal, or <shudder> Air-toy clones? Just seems to good to be true. Tempting though. I almost bit, then realized I have no idea what it really is.

Real deal or not?

Looks like the real deal and the guys feedback is perfect but it's e-bay so who knows.

Looks real, but there is another one that looks identical that is listed as "Matech Airsoft backup sight".
I'm not sure enough to send money. I wonder if the USGI sights have an NSN or Cage Code stamped on them.

I emailed the guy to see... hopefully he isn't one of those types that checks his mail once a week

Just seems very cheap when i see them for around $100 on the EE and elsewhere.
OK now I'm tempted again.

It may end up going for next to $100.

On the fourth page of feedback you'll see my name. I bought one of them and YES it was the real deal.

he must have access to a bunch of them - seen a bunch of them listed for a long time - sometimes the bidding ends at $59 or so.

What's the consensus on these - worth $60 bucks?
Link Posted: 8/26/2005 7:28:45 AM EDT
I bought one, they are real as it gets.

good deal.


(closest thing I have to a photo of it)

On gunbroker Ive seen them start out at $25 and end up selling for $50... Most web stores Ive seen them advertised at sell them for 100 bucks... $60 is definitely worth it

If that is the real deal, then what is this?

This seller has one Matech and a half dozen of these Cortec's. The pic is not great, but it looks close.

ETA: is there any real distinguishing markings on the real Matech's?

Maybe that's slang for misplaced military parts

Hmm a mil type BUIS from an APO ......
Link Posted: 8/26/2005 8:28:48 PM EDT
Exactly!
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 6:37:01 PM EDT
Well, I went for it and got it... $69.54 to the door... I guess that's a good thing, but the bad thing is, I really didn't need it...
It was one of those things, after realizing that it was a great price to start out at, I took a shot at it ...Damn you _DR

Now I have to build something to put it on... Man, my wife is going to be pissed, and its all _DR's fault

Hey, at least it has a good home now!

ETA looks like he has 3 more starting at $59, might have to bid on one of those.
