Is this a real IP flip sight?

I need a flip sight to complete my IP. This one is showing up on E-joke...and I am skeptical. I do not have enough experience to spot a fake. Can anyone verify if this is real?

Thanks.....I kind of figured it was too good to be true. Anyone have an idea where I might find a real one....or I might have to settle for a good repro until I can find the correct one.

Anyone have suggestions.......

Well, if you could get it for not much more than the 76 bucks it at least would "look" right on your I-P until you could find a USGI one. Of course on the other hand repros probably sell for around 25 bucks? So it could be a waste of $$ I suppose.

What is the conventional wisdom on something like this? Is it considered more acceptable to have a repro than a fake on your carbine temporarily? I have that bloody repro barrel band screw on one of mine and it drives me crazy, so...

How good a barrel band do you need? I have several type 1s that are missing the screws and swivels. Most are on somewhat worn or slightly beat up condition, but they are originals and intact, and you could get repop screws and swivels for them until you can find originals. If you are interested PM me.
