I have a friend who is a German SF Trooper. He just gave me a rundown of his visit to the IWA (kinda like SHOT in Europe). He told me about a new German company operating under the name "Schmeisser" that is making high end AR's, as well as Astra who is making them in Switzerland. I did a Google search for "Schmeisser AR" and there were some good hits with pics. Just thought I'd share the info.
