Is Armalite the only manufacturer with  license to make .308 AR?

Anybody can build a .308 AR-type rifle based on the Stoner patents sold to Colt back in 1959 as those patents have expired.  There is one current patent on file concerning the relief of the bolt locking lug opposite the extractor to relieve stress, but there are none that I can find concerning the current AR10.

KAC was building the SR-25 before the NEW Armalite AR-10.
