I.O.’s New Sporter-15

Excerpts from the Interview
“A lot of ARs are getting too heavy. Originally, the AR was a light-weight weapon and I’m glad to see you doing the A1 style.”
– Jeff Quinn
“A lot of customers approached us, especially the Vietnam generation, and they want basically their service rifle. We thought, everybody has the flat tops, and we decided to go back to the original A1 style.”
– Uli Wiegand
