Default M1D cheek pad

My gut is telling me repro, any second opinions? Still on the fence.

I think the white pads at least are repro, and the MRT font size is different, as is the size and shape of the pad area. The stitching ends look close(r) to original though...

I would stand down at that price, as it'll go higher.

I agree with Neighbors - the pads are definitely repros so the whole thing is likely a repro.

Plus 1 for repro, MRT marking is pretty dark and those grommets are too perfect vs the leather. Leather lacing is also brand new.

Sadly EBay seems to have mostly fakes these days. Or at least a high enough percentage that I've lost interest.

Yeah it seemed a little too perfect & +1 on Ebay, I've been snooping around for a bit before I finally saddled up & got an M1D, I've seen numerous fakes just in my limited time looking around. Pretty Disappointing.
