    Anybody who falls for that either knows nothing about gear or is a fool. It BARELY resembles a 6094C, and LBT doesn't make khaki. They make Coyote Tan.

    I'm going to go ahead and send LBT an email about that. ASM is an American retailer and has to follow copyright and trademark laws.

    Yea I was just thinking LBT doesn't make that 6094C in Kakki.

    And it looks nothing like a 6094. That'd be your first tip off.

    I know absolutely nothing about gear. Absolutely nothing.

    I'll send one as well... That's a load of crap and they deserve whatever they get.

    --edit--
    Sent the email. Hopefully AMS gets some well-deserved crap for this.

    I'd like to see some serious litigation, but I'm sure LBT will just send them a cease and desist and they will.

    If they do, then so be it. I'd personally go after AMS with more than a C&D, but I also just really dislike their company as a whole. That is clearly not an LBT product, and that they are trying to pass it off as one is ridiculous.

    Should I send an email too? Just to make sure AMS gets a well deserved beat-down? (couldn't come up with a better term)

    Sure, but wait a day so it doesn't seem like we're all the same person.

    What's weird is that through this entire conversation, I've been holding my Flyye EPC. :p

    My APC is sitting in the couch next to me.

    I think there's a pretty big difference between somebody making and selling reproduction gear that is marketed as reproduction gear and somebody trying to sell crap under one of the most trusted names in the business. It's the difference between copying a design and using somebody else's brand.

    Knief's got it right. They tried to pass it off as an actual LBT product, not just make a replica of it.

    I'm late here but that link made me laugh. That thing looks less like a 6094 than a Condor vest. But to be honest anyone who thinks they can get a genuine LBT for that cheap almost deserves it.

    Things like this can put a bad mark on the airsoft community for real steel companies though. Disappointing... :(

    I sent an email to both AMS and LBT. I also told everyone around here not to buy from AMS. This is despicable.

    Kinda reminds me of Evikes "Prometheus Matrix" barrels going for $30.

    Is it possible LBT just put out a cheap POS to try to gain some ground in the Airsoft market?
