    I finally scored what seem to be genuine Dueck Defense Rapid Transition Sights off eBay for an excellent price. Here are some pics of my gens along with some no-name replicas. There are also fakes available that have the Dueck Defense logo but I'm pretty sure they are the same as these replicas. While the reps work well for my friend the genuine ones are way better in fit and finish and I love having them on my rifle.

    There are so many counterfeit items nowadays. If you are not sure, purchase from reputation dealers. It's the best and safest way.

    I've got a set of DD copies on my rifle - only went cheap to try the concept out. They've proven their worth - now I'm going to add the real deal to my rifle after the holidays. The copies are OK, if you don't need elevation for a zero. Once you elevate the rear sight at all - they get wobbly. This isn't terrible at short ranges with the open aperture, but switching up to the narrow aperture for precision shots sucks a big one. I got to handle the real deal Duecks at Curt's Discount the other day - and even at top elevation there wasn't a hint of wobble.

    Not a bad idea to buy cheap replica and try it out. But, I would never settle with replica stuff on my firearms.
