I searched and cant find anything on the company. Seems it was pre Internet days or they were not around long.

The Leader Dynamica Series T2 MK5 proposed Australian assault rifle was imported by World Public Safety, California. Ed Hoffman & Tim Painter.
The US buyers were Bumble Bee and Eilett distributors. About 2000 were imported.

How accurate is that list. Are you saying none imported or none on your list.
I would not be asking if I had not seen a rifle (total franken build) that as best I could read was marked world public safety

He’s saying according to his data...AGG has a lot of solid info on numbers and importers. He isn’t saying that they never imported any.

If the question relates to FALs I have no idea. But WPs was as noted the US importer of the Leader.

Iíve never encountered a WP-imported FAL.
