Difficult to say because of dark photos. BUT...the first, and sometimes the best test is the drop test.

Simply find a solid surface like marble, granite, ceramic, etc., found in kitchens and bathrooms or tile floors Then drop the tool from about a foot or so.

If it THUNKS. Throw it away. If it clinks like a delicate bell it's probably good.

These tools were made of very hardened steel and the hardening process gives it the clinkey, bell like sound.

Hopes this helps.

I can do that. I have also heard that the legit tools are around 2.4-2.5mm thick and most reproductions are around 3mm? The main thing im concerned about is the deep stamp? I've seen alot of legit ones with a light stamp on them.

WHITE backgrounds take the WORST photos with auto settings. White REFLECTS light and shuts off detail of the tool. Use a dark background for better detail.

The hole lip and the screwdriver tip are important details.

I agree, these are the sellers pics. I have not actually gotten the tool yet.

If it's fake then I wouldn't throw it away if you plan to take it to the range occasionally. Better to use a fake as a mag loading assist tool than an original. Let it take all the finish wear and keep any originals as collectibles or display items.

Even the screwdriver blade on a fake is usually still adequate to remove the grips at the range if necessary. Some fakes are better than others in that respect.
