Actually there are no "plastic ones", period. If it comes from a box with MB-D10 written on it, well it's metal, and magnesium alloy can be very "un-metallic" when you touch it, especially at ambiant temperature. Or... it's a fake, and your seller is either a victim or an accomplice.
Could you, if you still have time, post pictures of the grip and the box, with close-ups or crops of the interesting parts?
Thanks in advance!
