Postby JasonGoldsmith66 » Tue Apr 18, 2017 2:58 pm

THESE ARE THE FAKES I SPOTTED... WASNT SURE, SO I CONTACTED CZ USA TO GET MORE DETAILS..THIS IS THEIR REPLY:

PLEASE SPREAD THIS NEWS AROUND to be on look out..


" I was pretty sure it was a forgery, but after consulting with the CZUB rifle team, I can confirm that the barrel in question is not a CZ-USA or CZUB product.

1. The CZ-USA logo is not an approved variant. No air rifle barrels currently or previously made are authorized to use the CZ-USA logo on the end.
2. We dont use material number 15 142
3. CZ barrels dont have a diameter of 16mm after cold hammer forging
4. The surface has a different appearance than CZ barrels after the cold hammer forging. (see attachment for an example of the appearance of a CZ barrel after cold hammer forging)

Thank you for bringing this to our attention,

-Jason
