Here are some extra higher quality pictures.please help....
The grind line looks very suspicious to me, won't be surprised if that's even hand ground. Screws feel too crude to be authentic as well.
I have never on any Golden Colorado models spotted such a sloppily executed ramp, not even with antique Militaries that feature old-style jimpings.
To give you a rough clue, this is what you should be expecting about the grind line: https://eseeknives.com/forums/index.php ... 204p.1447/
A crisp and clean straight edge. Also note the organic, gradually concave belly.
I believe there could be more pictures native to this forum, but hey that's what google gave me with the right angles and came right on top.
I actually ended up spending some more time looked up more to see if there are any high-def photo of Military knockoffs. Unfortunately I do find some and the details I mentioned above are exact matches.
Get back to the seller and do what you have to do. No one deserves to be ripped off like that, original designer&manufacturer or buyer.
