    it costs 690 lev which is about 350 euro or about 380$. Anybody got a clue? You can see the address above so you can visit the store. Is it worth it?

    It looks like a Micron. The price is less than what we can get one for in the US by about $85

    Coast Airbrush had a special on V1 Microns awhile back. They we’re selling them off for a good price. I know the stock photo is of a V2 Micron, but did you read the description or check the product code? Maybe it’s a good deal on a V1?

    They still have V1 Microns laying about? How long ago did Iwata come out with the V2s?

    sorry, that's probably the shop's product code... I'll send them an e-mail but will they tell me if it's genuine?

    I would like someone to post up a KNOWN fake Iwata micron. Not one with a different name, but one that actually says Iwata CM-? Japan with a date code. Right now I don't believe they exist, but Dave at Coast swears they do.

    I certainly have never run across one.... Ive seen Fake devillbiss spray guns, Fake Iwata spray guns (lph-100' and 101's I think) I have yet to find a fake micron With Iwata or CM anything printed. Nor ever seen someone report they got a fake Iwata anything but spray gun (or AB parts)
    Even the example fakes that are shown on the websites have no print on them.
    That witstanding, I've definitely found grey market sellers of the real deal. If you really consider people that buy it in japan and sell and ship it directly overseas without Iwatas authorization and pricing changes per the market as grey market.

    I bought my two CM v2 at our local iwata dealer and paid 400U$ each,so 380 does not look weird to me!!

    OOps no, its fake w-101's and fake w-71's the 101s are rampant on ebay right now and have the box and all the print and a fake inspection tag and everything....almost hard to tell if they werent out of china and priced at $50
    Even saw a video comparison and nothing jumps out except the different inspection tag and the fact that the barcode on the fakes box doesnt really scan.
