If it were me I would pass . Acogs are nice battle scopes bit not needed buy the average shooter . And I would be a skeptic to think its not a fake when someone is trying to trade for something of half its actual value . Your call but I personally think you might get screwed with a fake

Too many fakes out there to be buying used optics from unknown sources.

I personally dont buy stuff like tgat used. Trijicon warranty doesnt transfer with the device. They do that to combat the amount of fraud there is in dealing with the aftermarket trade of their optics.

Acogs have a certain rugged feel to them and pics are easily faked. The finish has a certain texture and the glass has and reticles have certain quirks that cant be seen in a pic but are dead giveaways on fake models.
