I'm pretty sure that it is a leupold, and I'm pretty sure it came from SWFA, as the person with the ad is also selling some SWFA rings. 

So if the scope is in decent shape, is this a good leupold, or should I avoid it like the plague?

Quoted from post

"I have a 4.5-14 X 50mm rifle scope that was suposed to be mounted on my rifle but finances forced me to sell the rifle.
This scope has a illuminated reticle and has turrets that can be adjusted for long range shooting. Idaho F&G rules allow illiminated reticals for hunting.
I am looking to sell it but will entertain trades as well. Make me a barter offer. Looking for $350-Paid $550 for it."

Nope,
Looks like a cheap Chinese nock-off of a Mark 4.
 
I would steer clear.

Thanks for the link!  If I could get the seller to give me the number off the scope.(assuming it has a serial number) would it be possible to call leupold and see if it is indeed a real scope.  I don't want to get burned, but it seems like a fantastic price.  I'll be heading that way in a few hours and thought I would check it out on my way through. (will print off the knock off papers to take with me too.) 
Thanks again.

disregard I see the number to call.  Hopefully leupold will have some CS standing by this afternoon.

It is not legit.  Leupold never marked Mark 4s under the turrets like that.

Oh... thanks, they should specify that in their warning to customers.  I wasn't sure about that.  Maybe leupold would like to chat with the person though to find out who is marketing phony product.
