Looks good to me. Importantly it has the circle on the magazine and the raised dot on the barrel so can’t be Repro v1 or v2, and there is no sign of any excess flashing so would say it can’t be Repro v3 either (as cross referenced with TIG).

Yeah that looks legit to me too. I spent a long time trying to find two of these and I've had a number of repros in hand.

As mentioned above, excess flashing is a dead giveaway on repros with the correct mould and this one looks crisp. Also ive noticed that the nub at the back of the barrel is misshapen on repros but this one looks good too.
