This one looks ok, but it can be hard to tell just by looking at photos.

Yes they are very hard to tell, I'm going to check my 4 and see if the pin holes are drilled through to the outside, can't remember at the moment

UPDATE: I checked my 4 deployments and none of them have visible drilled through holes on the sides but they all have the raised logo like the one on the tang buckle, not 100% if the non raised etched models had drilled open side holes. The tang buckle above looks legit

I think this is the older version, instead of raised wing logo it's recessed, but like you said not sure about the holes.

I have an early (ish) version - must be around ten years old. Although the markings are different it does have the through holes in the clasp so this looks OK to me. It also has an embossed logo - not raised like the buckle.

I have to say I think it's fake
How do I know?
I've just bought one for £30 from e bay..............................and as the previous poster said I believe on the original the holes are indented inside the clasp not drilled through?
Could be wrong so very very hard to tell apart from the price these days
