TIG Special Report: Best Before Repros! Fake Lili Ledy Accessories from Mexico The_be10

The ImperialGunnery.com team has been working on a report since December last year on a new wave of repros that appeared in Mexico concentrating on the Lili Ledy line of accessories.

Big thanks to Ozio for some outstanding research  :clap:

I posted in the watchout sticky that was made for these, but forgot to say a huge thanks to Paul and Ozio and any other contributors who may have had a hand in this. The research on it is great.

Excellent report. Things get closer and closer to original every day! My fear is that some of these will eventually be good enough to start fooling even us.

Great investigation.

Curious thing is: repros in Mexico are normally not frowned upon.

Very well done Paul and Oz. I personally haven't been involved in LL's but this info would really be helpful if I were to start.
