And how much exactly does it cost to set up a new text in a laser engraving machine and convert TL071's into LM308's? Close to 0. So once thet counterfeiting machine is paid/leased/whatever everything that is ran through it is close to pure profit.
There's very little demand professionally/in large quantities for MN3005's. Almost no self respecting mfr would go that obsolesence route for a new and profitable design. Still there's loads of (suspective) couterfeits available on the bay.
Assuming no counterfeits because the market/sales is/are too small.... I wouldn't count on it. You'll get burned,
