    Re: C. Plath on ebay

    This is a better forgery than the first which used a Tamaya case and 7 x5o scope with a Russian SNO-M
    This one is a SNO-M frame with 7 x scope and a SNO-M case.
    The Plath imprint and logo on the frame are simple to do. The logo on the handle if it is actually molded and just bonded would take some extra effort.
    IMO, polishing it, makes it look very attractive as a decorating item.
