P420 mic - real vs fake

Hi everyone, first post.

I recently bought a P420 mic from a seller I've used many times before, but this time I am a little concerned that I may have receive a fake P420.

While it looks and feels like a real AKG, I weighed it and it is 15g lighter than the 530g listed in the specs. I tested my scales with a Shure SM57 and SM58, and they are both within one gram of spec.

Do you reckon I got a fake mic? Are there any known things to look for in this model?

I appreciate any info that you can provide!!
