Yeh - - when I hit the "ENLARGE" on the picture of eBay Item #110607190355 and got a good look at it, I would sy that it is DEFINITELY a "REPRO" - - and not even as particularly good one. The pads are not as thick, nor as squared off, as are the originals, and that sling ring definitely looks welded to me. Whatever else it IS, it AIN'T ORIGINAL.
Take a look at the one [a "REPRO" already marked SOLD] here on Al Frasca's WebSite [it's under "PARTS FOR TRAPDOORS" in the section called "BUTTS, BANDS, BARS, AND BEYOND!!! (DETAILS)". That one does have squared pads and what appears to be a forged ring. I think it would be well worth going back after whomever was the seller.
