By bootlegs, what do you guys mean? From China/Argentina or is there something else?
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

China. The best way to tell is the Cobra emblem. The emblem/logo on the KOs have blockier/thicker lines within the cobra hood. real ones have slimmer lines.

Yep, if you look at an original you will notice, plus the one you got has reversed rivets (while on it's own may not mean anything). Logo and rivets usually means KO but I'm no expert.
Use this pic as a guide.

Okay, so heres the thing....
Ive noticed that the chinese bootlegs like in the auction only say "Made in China" on the ass. Mine is different and has the year 1984 on it too. Also, the rivets in the elbows of the knock offs are silver, the originals are gold.
Also, i emailed the seller and he was adament that he doesnt sell knock offs and that mine is legit, but there is variation in size of the rivets due to how much the rivets are crunched down at the factory at the time of installation. I went through all my other loose joes and noticed most of my other joes had rivets that were different sizes too...some had rivets compressed more than the other.
So, Im pretty sure that Im okay with mine. Plus, mine has a slight yellow tint to it...the knock offs look brand new. Anywany, I hope Im right!
