After introducing plenty of platforms that never saw the light of day, Masaf became the only locally built assault rifle that passed all the tests successfully.

Therefore it will slowly but surely replace the G-3 of army.

AR15/ M4 patent has been expired, even Indonesian Pindad started making one.

It has softer recoil, good one

You think Iran cares about US patents?

When it still manufactures western missiles, copies bell helicopter design, and reverse engineered Siemens gas turbines which it was using under a license?

Has nothing to do with patents. Every military will try to reach a standardization level to make logistics and supply chains more efficient. Most that are allied with NATO will just license out the cost. Others who are not will license or reverse engineer an AK-47/74 derivative. Others will try to build their own derivative rifle based on an existing designs. This is what Iran is now doing.

if only they stop producing old platform and repurpose their production line.
my guess we see this in hand of Yemeni and Lebanese way before starting to replace our older guns

I'm old school so when I see rails on the guns and weird "barrel sleeves" I go like "ugly". But I generally do that,because that's how they make weapons now. If you check USA,most of their new M4s look nothing like an M4. They look like weird tubes with rails and painted a lot.
