Ihave high bid on this (so i appreciate it if no one else bids) just wondering if theres any warning signs or red flags regarding its authenticity?

(Ad removed...got my answer, thank you)

With 14 bids and price up to $375 plus shipping from an American dealer I'd guess yes.
The box looks real, but without holding the optic in my hand it's purely a guess.

Since I am one of those views, here are the thoughts I didn't post previously.

Asking if the sight is real after you have bid is like putting the cart before the horse. If you had concerns about the product, then you should not have bid.

Otherwise, there is nothing in the image that stands out as being wrong. That does not mean the seller will be sending you what is in the image, however.

Yea I should have made sure before I bid. I asked on another forum, and one person said its looks good to go, so I bid. However, I started second guessing when I saw it never said its a real Aimpoint. I sent him a message asking if he could gaurentee its authenticity money back, so as long as he says its real, I have a legal standing if I receive a fake POS.

Another thing that made me wary is that the bid started out at like $100.00 or so, and when I bid it was only at like $270.00. The fact no one else is bidding makes me nervous. It seems like a very cheap price for what hes selling.

100% positive feedback

I concur. Everything looks right but when you buy from sites like this you are always taking some level of risk.
This seller buys more than they sell just quickly looking over their feedback but they do have 100% positive feedback. When buying that's the first thing I look at.

Everything in the pics looks legit, his description is really just a copy/paste from wikipedia or Aimpoint's website.

The price seems low, but I'd probably risk it. If it turns out to be a fake, paypal will side with the buyer 100% of the time.

not alot of bidders because all the xmas credit card bills are due soon and most people are more worried about paying bills than buying a sight.
