Well its tough without being able to see the link but I can tell you this, if it doesn't have tritium it isn't a trijicon and there are boatloads of Chinese knockoffs out there that are worth about $100.

Ok so you have a pretty good idea of what you're looking at. I have one question for you. How old is it? Tritium has about an 11 year shelf life. After that your looking at basically just an overpriced scope.

It looks legit but the fakes are very good. I'd ask for a shot of the chevron before you make a final decision but I'm less trusting than most especially when it comes to the acog. I've seen "experts" fall for fakes and that's in person.
