I don't know enough to say it is right or wrong.

The bolt guide looks better than the ones you normally see with the India/Chinese knockoffs and the rivets match the guide, which you would expect if the scabbard went through some sort of rebuild process. The stitching looks intact, but it doesn't look new to me.

If it is a fake, it is an odd one.
