Funny thing... the "replicas" are made from the Prodrive mold.

tell me that's not the same mold. even the other letters and numbers of the code are the same, the only thing different is the date stamp.


it's as genuine as the real thing. made in austria.

it's entirely possible that they got the same molds and used different processes and materials, but the molds are the same if not an exact replica.

only difference i see is that the primer doesn't look as nice or tacky.
