Picked this up today at a show along with the sight and mounting plate.The marking is an R in a star,to the right is Grenade over Launcher,and M-8 to the right of that.Is it the real deal?

 

Thanks

Here's a picture showing all 5 manufactures. Top to bottom:

 

Knapp Monarch, late type w/retaining spring

Reliance, early type w/removable nut

Sun Ray, early type w/removable nut

US Cabinet Bed, late type w/retaining spring

MLS, late type w/retaining spring
