Default Rifle Grenade transport tubes on Ebay for the G.Sprng.Gr.30

Hey guys,

I just saw this listing on Ebay Germany and wanted to give you guys a heads-up. I don't think these come up too often, but it looks like the guy has a few of them.

https://www.ebay.de/itm/Transport-Hu...QAAOSwoRBad27A

This is not my auction, and I don't know the seller, I am just passing on the info for anyone who might need one. I already have a couple in my collection that I got from a different source last year.

Good luck!

John

They were also listed on Egun.

Oh no!!! They fake these too? I guess I should not be surprised.

Sorry guys, I never even thought about the possibility that these could be fakes.

What gives them away as being fake? If you don't want to post that answer here in public, perhaps someone could PM that to me.

I guess I better have you guys take a look at these for me now that I know they fake these too. I bought these from a dealer in the UK last year, so hopefully they are good.

I'm afraid Jan is right.

Sorry...

Oh, great.

So evidently the UK dealer bought a bunch from this guy and was re-selling them, and I bought two from him.

I just checked the dealer website to see if he still had them for sale, and his site has been closed. I guess I'm stuck.

Can you guy post detailed pictures of your originals?

Thank you Tamas, I can definitely see the difference between the real ones and these fakes. Nice examples you have.

Thanks klarkon, that is a really nice example. The fakes do look very similar from the side-view, but when looking at the end-caps, it is obvious they are not original.
