Gitlab.com returning 403 on raw file with specific User Agent

Hello all,

I am receiving 403 responses when requesting raw files from a repo from gitlab.com. However, this is only when using a specific user agent:

Works:

I was also able to replicate this from another cloud IP and from a residential IP address. I was also able to replicate this using multiple repos. Is there someting at gitlab.com that blocks that specific user agent?

Bump. Is anyone able to reproduce?

Yes I am getting the same issue but with user-agents in amazon ec2.
