Fake, Counterfeit, & Knockoff Information

RailScales consumers are targeted and being tricked into purchasing allegedly "brand new, authentic RailScales products" at substantially low prices on various online auction sites (such as eBay, Amazon, GunBroker, TacSwap) and even US based Firearm accessory retailer sites that have turned out to be low-quality unsafe knock-off counterfeits.

As the popularity in our products combined with the constant demand being greater than the supply in recent years, the sale of counterfeit RailScales products has increased substantially with the counterfeit manufacturing being primarily based out of Asia.

Risk in using counterfeit RailScales products

RailScales counterfeit products at first glance may appear to be near identical to the original with the appropriate RailScales branding, patent numbers and registered trademarks, and other part identifiers. There are many tells we can identify that the consumer may miss. 

  • Many of these counterfeit products do not fit properly on standard MLOK, KeyMod, or Picatinny rails -- resulting in improper consumer installation and thereby resulting in safety concerns and potential product failures.
  • Counterfeit RailScales products may be manufactured with poor finishes, materials, and machining practices resulting in small, sharp, breaking fragments that pose a choking hazard to small children.
  • The counterfeit RailScales products are primarily manufactured in Asia wherein toxic and hazardous chemicals (including lead) and materials (including metals and paint) are used on a daily basis. Users of these counterfeits may be exposed to dangerous and toxic materials, finishes, parts, fasteners and other dangerous chemicals. 
  • Counterfeit RailScales products cost jobs and money for hard working Americans.

How you can verify RailScales product authenticity

How can you protect yourself from purchasing a counterfeit RailScale product? Here are some general guidelines to help you purchase genuine RaillScales products:

  1. The number one way to guarantee authentic RailScales products is buy directly from our site,
  2. Is the price for the "brand new, hard to find" RailScales product too good to be true? If the deal looks too good to be true, it probably is and you should be extremely cautious.
  3. Are you purchasing from an online auction site (such as, eBay, Amazon, Gunbroker, TacSwap, or some other online retailer)? Does the seller explain his willingness to part with the RailScales product by claiming that they were "a gift that he doesn't need"? Sellers of counterfeit products on the Internet often use these and other similar stories to deceive their victims.
  4. Are you purchasing from an international retailer? If so, you are probably purchasing a counterfeit product as we have no international retailers outside of direct Military Contract importers.
  5. If you are in doubt about the authenticity of the RailScales product being offered for sale, contact RailScales and ask for assistance. In doing so, your chances of being subject to a counterfeit purchase decrease substantially.
