I highly doubt bg sells fakes, but guarantee is a whole other story.

Yep. “Gray market” products are ones the manufacturer sells and warrants elsewhere in the world, which some intermediary buys up there and ships to or resells in the United States.
They are not, generally, covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for US buyers, because they’re not coming through an authorized reseller.

We ask why prices for brand name products from authorized resellers are higher. Part of the answer is the cost of providing warranty service.
