Not real, if nothing else just from the background color as this picture looks like it came from ebay seller rollermilleast (if I remember correctly) and he sells lots of fake parts. Even his name tells you this lol.

Somebody paid $56 for it. Riverbank only asks $45 I think. The rolled-up edges of the stamping seemed suspect to me.

Rollermill....as-in roll your own.

New to this forum,

   Ive been posting questions trying to find out about this Rollermillseast guy on FB, whether his parts are legit or not, so do you more experienced guys think some (or all) are fake??  Help me learn the signs that they are fake.  Thank you!

Don't give that seller another thought. Find someone else to buy real USGI parts from.

Ditto on that for sure. Steer clear
