I have had these for about 25 years. I am as sure as I can be that they are NOT repop or aftermarket. Very Heavy gauge metal. They are really, really nice two are 100% perfect, two have VERY minor blemishes which probably cannot be seen at all from 6 feet. My camera is not great a extreme close-ups but the pictures show it all. No dents just very minor paint scrape. YOU WILL NOT FIND NICER.
