Most optics will have a serial number and you should be able to call the manufacture to verify...at leasts thats what I did with my aimpoint I bought on another site

hard to be 100% sure, but based on the photos Id say thats a real model.
Easiest way to tell is to look at the reticle in person.
Real units use a laser to create the reticle, which looks like several tiny dots forming the reticle. So it looks ever so slightly "imperfect" like the picture Ive attached. Depending on your eyes (and how you look at it and how high the brightness is set) it may simply look a bit fuzzy on the edges or you may actually be able to see the little dots.

The knock-off models are LED based, so the reticle is "perfect." They typically have ghosting issues (where you can see a slight double of the reticle) when you move them arround so that the reticle is not dead center in the objective.

and as rendered on the eotech website
