    I just bought a BT-16 Skids on Ebay. But I suspect it may be a knock off, How can I distinguish??

    Well, what is it that makes you think it's a knock-off?

    Wow, that's scary. I mean, it's one thing to have a loose KO that you have to deal with--but even the packaging was made to match. Even with those little tell-tales, it's still something you could inadvertently buy thinking it was the real deal if you weren't paying attention.
