    Yeah I did see them on there, but just to me seems rubbish. They aren't mentioned anywhere else on the web other than on counterfeit sites. I feel Vintagesunglassesshop have made a bit of an error?

    Hi @Rollz , i would say fake (sorry). The BL etching does not have 4 loose parts. Plus chromax lenses with double BL etchning i never saw before. Furthermore the flash seems to be not spot on.. the end of it isnt so pointy while left side of it also doenst look fully right.
    Also the color of the lens doesnt look like chromax B20 lenses. And i dont think they are G20 lenses neither...
    One more thing, the B&L on top of the bridge also doesnt seem to be correct

      check http://www.vintagesunglassesshop.com/item_vs1720.html

    i'm still doubting.
    When i want to make a fake one i take a normal model and i engrave in both lenses BL and i put on the nose bridge B&l Ray Ban USA to let it look real instead off B&L USA and just in one lens B&L.

    I get what you mean, but just nothing about that model seem right. I think the only way to know for sure would be to look in more detail. What's stamped on the nose pads? Is there anything stamped under the nose bridge? Can we see the screws in more detail? I do see your concern as they are on one credible website but other than that they aren't mentioned anywhere on the Internet, other than on a few counterfeit sites. If they weren't on Vintagesunglassesshop then we would 100% say fake. The only reason there is a slight doubt is because they are on there, but what's to say we believe them? And where have they got their information?

    I'll do a little more hunting.

    Hi, ive bought a pair of fantasee shooters and I think they are fake. The BL etchings seem wrong, with the left lens etching being blurred. Also , the brow bar is more tramslucent than the one on my rose shooters. The final thing which concerns me is the bullet hole. You can see a join at the 12 o clock position , whereas on my other pair the join is seamless. If you have any shooters, could you let me know if you can actually see a join? Need to sort out whether these are fake or not asap so I can return them. Hope you can all help, thanks, Will

    well, i am in no way authorized to say what it authentic and what is not, im just sharing my opinion.
    Maybe others can share theirs...?

    ps ive downloaded the pictures. besides the comments earlier im doubting ive the nosepieces are actually bigger then the regular..they seem not to be. Chromax glasses however come in the driving series which do have bigger nosepads, meant for better comfort during wearing them while driving.
    can you check and let me know what you think regarding those nosepieces.

    ive checked my shooters and sharpshooters:
    5 x Sharpshooter, seamless
    3 x shooter 1980 seamless
    1 x shooter 1975-1978 (BL etching at 12h, LIC frame i think, ill check), seam at 12h.

    so....im also getting interested, although i do not doubt about my shooter.

    post some pictures :)

    the end of the arm coil sleeves are also open, is this standard or are they normally tapered?
