How do you tell the difference? Been seeing them priced anywhere for $30-$120. I know there are airsoft knockoffs but how do you tell if the one is real or not? And what is the actual going price for a real one (used)?

Thx

Why on God's Earth would someone rip off a Ma-tech?

There are real ones used easily at $30.

They can wear out quick sometimes.....

make sure its all metal???

the one i had was genuine, but i dont recall seeing any kinds of marking on it what-so ever. It flipped up nice and strong, and the elevation adjustments were a nice solid click as well...

check ebay or

sturmgewehr.com

good luck !

But I thought yours came new on a rifle?

I wouldn't expect anything less..

it did...the colt...

im just saying, i sold it, and i couldnt find any kind of markings on it at all to prove its authenticity.

ETA: Larue, is your number different? i called you the other day and hot sounding verizon girl spoke with me saying your number was no longer valid....

So are these now good sights for longer range iron sights?

What is with you and females and why were you calling me.

My number changed...but it's currently shifting again and I'm not giving my number out until I have one solid and I'm done messing with my account. When I get it...I'll let you know.

But back to the Matech....

google search shows that the real ones are marked "matech" on the bottom.

I got one on my rifle and like it. I can hit a brick at 1000 yards with no magnification while eating pork skins and sipping on an ice cold Natty Light.

I like mine, no problems thus far.
