Default Clones, Counterfeits and Replicas

Clones, also known as Counterfeits, are items that are made to duplicate an existing item and carry the same markings and/or titles as the original item.
For example, a clone of a Trijicon ACOG that bears any or all of the same titles or markings as an actual Trijicon ACOG is a counterfeit item and illegal based on both Patent and Trademark violations.

Replicas are items that are similar to and/or function the same as an existing item but do NOT carry any markings or titles in common with the original item.
Bushnell, Barska and many AirSoft manufacturers make replicas of the Trijicon ACOG. They look similar to and function in a similar manner as the Trijicon ACOG but they are not marked in any way like a Trijicon ACOG. These are legal items that share a common use and similar appearance but do not infringe on existing Patents or Trademarks.

Due to the illegality of selling counterfeit/clone items and the fraudulent nature of the clones/counterfeits themselves, selling these items on Calguns.net is not allowed.
If you post a counterfeit/clone item for sale it will be deleted, repeated violations will result in permanent loss of access to the Marketplace forums.

Selling replica items, clearly stated as such and bearing no markings or titles of a similar brand name item is allowed and acceptable. However misrepresenting a replica as an original for sale is of course fraud and will be treated as such.
