Cliff, while I would like some views of the interior, this one is a fake. Certainly the strap is. I was just looking at some originals at the Allentown Show last weekend, in addition to mine.

We have some good threads on these in the firearms and optics sections.

About 20 years ago a French collector/ dealer had 100s, if not 1000s, of fake scope cans made in Vietnam. All models. They were sold on eBay and through some other crooks in the hobby.

If I am correct, the "French connection" did some jail time.

Many were sold in the US through a crooked Australian.
