Did I fuck up really badly here? I bought an Aimpoint micro T-2 2 MOA sight off Amazon for $700.00.

I'm concerned it might be a fake. Can anyone experienced with aimpoint micro sights please help me determine if its legit or not. I tried calling aimpoint directly and they are closed already.

I can provide more pictures and information upon request.

Pic related, the plain white cardboard box it came in and the foam inside. I found it strange it didnt come with a warranty card. I will dump some more pictures.

Everything that was in the box.

Show the sight and the markings on the side
>>
Best way to figure out if your micro is legit: Turn it on, and see if it's still on in 4.5 years. If it is, it's legit.

Or...just call aimpoint with the serial # and they'll figure that shit out.

Did you buy it from Aimpoint on Amazon? The seller should have been Aimpoint. Anyways, all the packaging looks pretty legit. Just contact Aimpoint and give them the serial.

A quick google search shows that you're a dumbass. And wrong too.
>>
Ship it to me, I'll need to see it in person to confirm
>>
>>28512928

I have a T2 as well. Your pics look legit, nothing about the sight is obviously wrong or not legit. Just call aimpoint tomorrow with your serial # to confirm, but I'm guessing that it's real.

Does the intensity dial spin freely or does it have stop points? Fakes will often spin freely and wont have solid stops at both ends of the dial.

This is the red flag that I noticed. On stock photos I saw T-2 micros have a sort of "bullseye" design molded into the rubber on the front lens cover. I will post a picture of that following the picture of mine.

I've had nothing but good things to say about them and their sellers.

>>28512990
Indeed

>>28512996
Mainly the front lens cap. Also the plain white box, and lack of a warranty card or any such goodies & #SWAG that are included in most high end gun shit.

if you had to google he won. I mean I'm not a native english speaker and I know that "less brighter" is all sorts of wrong. Instead of spending $700 on sights, spend them on English courses..

Only way to test it is one way.
>throw it on the ground
>try to burn it in a housefire

I tried the first one once when I was buying some dude's acog in a face to face deal and I got a broken nose. You can never know if it is genuine or not, only with this test.
>>
>>28512971
Amazon is very legit and, at least in my country, they'll accept free returns no questions asked with full money back.

I have no battery for it yet, and even if I did, cameras cannot pick up red dots with any accuracy.
>inb4 not having a mountain of all sized operator batteries in your prepper SHTF stash
>>
>>28513134
while amazon tries to be legit as fuck and does have pretty good customer service they do get lots of clones for things put up and the like. Ray-bans is probably the only fake item i've ever gotten from them but they took them back no problem and killed the seller within weeks
>>
>>28513150
>I have no battery for it yet
Uhhh, that's definitely a red flag for a new aimpoint product
>>
>>28513150

It...didn't come with a battery? My T2 did...
>>
>>28513175
>>28513172
Nope. I showed literally everything in the package. This is my first aimpoint product. I didnt know they were supposed to come with batteries.
>>
>>28513154
Well I meant legit as a shop, yes, they do sell copies over here too but they're marked as non-original. I've bought a replacement remote for my Sony TV and it's even marked Sony, but it's just a copy.
>>
>>28513175
just checked amazon, it says batteries required, so maybe they ship them without batteries now and changed the front logo and you are looking at an old stock image with the bulls eye
>>
>>28513172
>>28513175
might could have been a store display. I bought my eotech as the last display model and got 30 bucks off initially since it was smudged up and a bit scratched. Then i got another 15 off for the battery being "used".
>>
>>28513038

damn kids are so used to trolling and shitposting they forgot what jokes are.
>>
>>28513172
And also, I guess technically its not a "new" product since the Amazon seller owned it before I did.
Did your T2 come with warranty card? All mine came with was the sight, the tool, and an instruction manual, which seems very legit, it is heavily laminated and I didnt spot any typos in it. A typo in the booklet is always a dead fucking giveaway.
>>
>>28513208

If it's real (appears to be), it sounds like it's used at the very least.
or this>>28513224


For that cash, I'd just return it and get one from LaRue.
For an extra $36, you get peace of mind and a nice mount.

>Did your T2 come with warranty card?
It was actually a comp m2 and yes.
>>
>>28513208
Did you buy used off amazon?
>>
>>28513241
something else that caught my eye is the lack of the "danger/warning class 3 laser radiation" sticker/etching. Is it normal for this model to not have it?
>>
>>28513256
That was actually what I was going to do, but then I saw the one on amazon. I don't need a mount. Im mounting it on my SLR104FR with an AK301 mount... Although I guess I could sell it on afrcom or some other shitty forum

>>28513266
No. It was sold to me as "new"

>>28513272
I have no ideax but I've never seen that on illuminated optics. Only on crimson trace stuff and actual laser products. I seem to remember seeing that sticker online on an EoTech, but the one I got from my LGS didnt have it.
>>
>>28513345
>Although I guess I could sell it on afrcom or some other shitty forum
I hope you're referring to the mount, otherwise that'd be a poor move financially.
Unless you got an idiot to pay full price for a used optic
>>
>>28513371
Yes, the Larue mount is what I was referring to.

an eotech and redfield counterstrike

Send it back.
>>
>>28513127
Except acogs break with even less impact than that.
>>
>>28513465
Any particular reason?
>>
did you buy it from Amazon on Amazon on a 3rd part on Amazon? This is the important part. The page on Amazon will say whether its from Amazon or a 3rd party, it isnt as obvious as it should be.
>>
>>28513556
Heres a sceenshot of my amazon order. It appears to be from "blueorbit"
>>
>>28513640
I would contact aimpoint. They can probably walk you through steps to check if it is legit or not.

If it is found to be counterfit, contact the company through amazon's website and let them know. Sometimes they dont realize the stuff they are selling isnt legit.
>>
>>28513640
also http://www.aimpoint.com/support/counterfeitcopies/the-16-rules/

I dont know anything about aimpoint, but the same steps apply to any product.

>random ass seller with zero information about themselves on their page

>>
>>28513535
You buying this new? It's not new. At best someone has returned it before you.
Amazon has easy return policy.
Stop crying and do it.
>>
>>28512990
>>>>>>>THUMBNAIL

>>28513640
But you can buy it directly from Aimpoint's Amazon page for $30 less. Why?
>>
>>28514558
Nevermind, failed to notice it was the T2.
>>
>>28512811
should have bought from optics planet or a reputable retailer of some kind so you don't have to make anxiety posts on /k/
>>
>>28512950
Or maybe you have a fake too....

>>28515430

Bought it from BCM's website...so I doubt it
