That part isn't photoshopped. That's just how the mount looks.I'm not all that familiar with that mount, but if you look at where the rings would go together on the front, then look at the back on top. The screw holes are jacked up. Not sure if the "A 0041" and the "A0040" difference on each side is an issue or not.
It seems a lot of scams or attempts to scam here lately have been a result of a memebrs WTB ad and the scammer sending what the member is looking for as referred to in this thread
Nice catch OP
I haven’t sold in a while here but anytime I did I just gave the buyer my cell number. At least on anything of value. That way not only can they request more info but if this site went down for some reason I can still have a contact with the buyer. Tell them I have the item and ask what they wanted pics of. They get what they want right away because it’s in my hands when they askYeah, the WTB attracts the scammers more for sure. When I did a want to buy I had a guy try a scam too. I reported it of course. No feedback, I won't deal, unless they want to send the item first. It's that simple.
Got this one the other night I thought it was little off but can’t say for sure. I emailed the guy and when he said $170 I said that’s too high and he said of that was my price for two of them.? Anyways I got one elsewhere but just seemed fishy.
First thing I do when selling or buying is offer my cell number. Let’s talk on the phone! Plus it’s easier for me to send photos over text. If it’s a high end scope or rifle, ask or send a photo of your drivers license. Always easier to search or find someone w a full name and address...
