I picked up a "generic long range" scope off ebay a month ago. The add said that the scope had a 50mm objective and a 30mm tube, side focus, illuminated mil dot recticle, turret knobs and came with rings.
 I paid the required $85.00 and one was sent to me. When I retrieved the packeage, I opened it and just about crapped myself. The scope was marked "LEUPOLD MK 4" complete with a serial number. I mounted that scope on my Savage 10 predator .223 and I get ragged holes at 100 meters with it. Has anyone else have any experiance with this scope brand?

No, it doesn't. however the scope's packeage was postmarked Hongkong when I picked it up.
 It is my understanding that all Leupold scopes are made in the USA or am I wrong?

You can contact Leupold and get the serial # authenticated. If it is a fake the quality could be very suspect. If you try reselling it make sure you don't try and pass it for real if it is fake. That would be fraud. A very good chance you would get turned in. Leupold is very unhappy about these scopes being on the market.
