I tried the magnet test that optictac posted above. The magnet sticks to the spring from the side, but not to any other area of the clips.
Also, there was a sticker over the corner of the upc, when I took it off it said it was the black version. Mine is the fde one.
I cant seem to get good closeup pictures of the sling right now, but can someone let me know if it is fake from what I posted above, or the crappy pics?
Based on your photos it looks almost legit. I am comparing mine against yours and I know mine is real since I sell them. Only thing that I'd check is the latch, is it made out of metal or polymer (only can be seen on your first photo)? As mentioned, a magnet test works best. My latch does have a line down the middle, but it's not as defined as yours.. which makes me wonder if it's real. Also that latch you have in the photo looks like it has texture, which would mean it's plastic. My metal one does not have texture, but rather matted black. If it's metal, then I'd say you have a legit one.
Here's a photo of mine from a review I did a while back.
