"High quality optics": definition-specific claim, but it is an Oregon media outlet.

Counterfeiting is bad, don't counterfeit.

For a measly $3,728.50 he ruined his reputation and probably his business future - dumb.

Would think it’s pretty easy to prove he was the seller of the scopes in question but maybe he’s gambling on the prosecution be able to prove that he knew that they were fakes, I.e. he was duped too.

Not Leupold.  Some Redfield ones are.

Leupold does make binoculars in China.

 A month or so ago, I saw a Leupold LR/T for sale on eBay. It came from China and not only had the Leupold name but the logo, to. One of thos same serial # scopes.
Yes, I knew it was bogus, but since it came with free shipping and was <$70, I bought if for fun.

Yes, I did a bad thing buying something from China, but those who criticize me for this, PLEASE don't shop at Wal-Mart!!!!

BTW, the scope was much better than I expected. It's in the 'spares' tub.

I would think he would be throwing the kitchen sink at the guys who sold him the scopes?
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
