Is this a real Aimpoint Comp M4s or a fake?

Link Removed

The photos don't show the "Aimpoint" logo very well. I have emailed the seller and if it is real it is surely sold by now anyway. But in the interim, does it look real?

If you find your back is up against a wall, maybe you have been backing up for too long.

On another forum I got a bunch of responses. I will share the info here (seems fair since it is a cross post).

Aimpoint has guidelines for detecting fake sights.
There are fake mounts out there as well.
In both cases, original packaging, owners manuals, and any additional package contents are a big help in proving validity.

There are fake Elcan's and Eotech's as well.
Some are so close that it takes side by side comparison.

My cousin got stung by a fake, but the vendor gladly took it back because they had been duped too.
