That doesn't surprise me. If you have ever seen the stuff ASA sells as their own name brand products at fun shows, I am amazed it didn't happen sooner.

ArmaLite has quite a few patents on the AR-10 components. With the exception of the receiver shape and the side charging handle ASA's 308 is a knock off of the ArmaLite. I agree with SinistralRifleman, there is absolutly no comparison with a patent infringment suit and a lawsuit against the industry. It is just like any other business, you have to protect your products. Patents are EXPENSIVE, why pay for one if you dont plan to enforce it?

Without more info on the suit there really isn't a lot to discuss on this topic. There is no way of telling what it is even related to. If anyone finds any more info on the topic though I would be interested in looking at it. Michael

I think Nastoff actually got some settlement money off of that suit.

ASA's old version of the Super Mount was practically an identical piece to the ArmaLite. So is RRA's, though, and almost everyone else's who sells one. The new ASA mount is different than the ArmaLite mount, I like theirs even better than the ArmaLite one. This may have to do with the .308 rifle, although the ASA rifle is admittedly quite a bit different than the ArmaLite AR-10. And Bob claims the ASA .308 rifle to be [b]"The most devastating weapon available on the market today."[/b]
