Does anyone have a clue as to the future of Steyr and GSI in the US?

Steyr is owned by Mannlicher now. GSI is the importer. They still produce rifles and pistols under the Steyr name. And my Steyr SBS Tactical has Mannlicher all over the box and manual. They still make great non assult rifle products. If I had the money, I would definately buy a Scout.
