Terrafirma radius arm knockoffs? What are these?

Does anyone know what brand these are? I ordered these TF and they look different than any pics I have seen on line everywhere. I ordered genuine front bushings from RN and they did not fit...either the holes are too big or the bushings are a tad bit small because the bushings Do not stay in...they slide out. All Terrafirma radius arms have a logo sticker on the side and these don't. Instead they have an "M" cut out.
Can anyone I'd this brand or is it an older generation? Any thoughts on the bushing issue?
Thanks in advance, Ed

PS these are for my DI not the 110.

That "M" is the letter in the Terra Firma logo...they appear to be legit:

Jason, thanks for your help. I know the M looks like the Logo but I am confused why I can't find any current of past pictures of the R-arms that look like this. It wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for the fact the bushing don't fit.
Any thoughts there or suggestions?

Thanks again,
Ed

I bought a load of TF parts from Lucky8 last summer, some stuff had the M cut out, some didn't. Erik recommended installing Poly bushings over the factory bushings. You can see the radius arms don't have the M cut out but the rear shock mounts have the identical M.
