Hi Bert,

Do you have this one on your list of fakes?

Hello Don,

I did not have it listed… but I do now.  It is the 25th verified Fake.  I sent the seller a message informing him that it is not an authentic Spruce Gun.

Any response from seller?  In the early days of ebay, I often tried to “educate” sellers of falsely described sights & scopes; an exercise in futility I gave up yrs ago, as the few who bothered to reply usually claimed a local “expert” was the source of their info.

Hi Bert, 

Here’s another from the same seller.  This one look legit?

The “J C ’17” marking looks noticeably sharper than the other markings.

It does, and it is in the correct S/N range for the “J.C. ’17” marking.  It is very unlikely that it is a fake.

  TWO stock-less ’94s in the possession of the same seller, one fake & the other legit?  Seems a rather remarkable coincidence, I think.

I had the same thought, but in this case, the 2nd Carbine is legit.  The J.C. ’17 marking is exactly like the other 2-dozen that have been verified, and it is sandwiched right between two other J.C. ’17 marked Spruce guns in the survey (S/Ns 839103 and 839118).
