MP44 magazine 'gqm' WaA A98 - is it real or fake?

Hallo everyone,

someone told me this magazine might be a Shoei copy.
I spent about 2 hours reading through different forums, looking at the Shoei website, but I am still clueless.
How do I know if this mag is a real gqm ?

Thanks for help,

Christian

Thank you, you are confirming my doubts :-/
I paid $215 - how much is a Shoei mag pricewise?
Then I will decide if I send it back, get a little refund, or maybe keep it.


Did the mag come from the same person selling the gas block/ sight post?

yes. It was a mixed bag of original and dubious parts.

The prices for shoei magazine around 180-200 , the price is ok what you paid.Didn't the seller know that these were reproductions?

Thanks for the value estimation. No, the seller did not know they were Repro.
To be honest, for the inexperienced eye these magazines really look very real :(
