    Well I was reading another forum, and somebody said they had seen counterfeit Leupold scopes at the Indy1500 gunshow. That's one that I had also attended.
    I don't know if this is new or old but couldn't find any similar threads here on this forum. Here's the Leupold Link,

    I have seen two counterfeit Leupold scopes. No one who is knowledgeable about Leupold rifle scopes would be fooled.

    Believe it or not, these counterfeit scopes are made at the same factory that makes some of the optics for Leupold. Leupold went to court in China over the counterfeit rifle scopes and lost.

    Now ain't that a shame. They outsourced their All-American product line to Red China and those awful cut-throat Chinese sold IDENTICAL product in the US. Tut Tut. It sucks, but Leupold knew it would happen and sold out their integrity anyway so Tango Sierra Leupold. Don't expect any of your ex-employees will be shedding many tears over your plight.

    I could see how they'd have a case if China was reverse engineering their product and selling it at the Dollar Store but even then the current administration probably wouldn't be any help trying to keep the counterfeits out of the country.

    So is it the same product? China makes imitations and reproductions. Imitations are supposed to look like the product--say a Gucci handbag. On the otherhand, they also copy products, and make faithful reproductions. Which is it?
