    On his website he claims its not money but the direction Knight was headed? Dont know what that means-was Knight sold recently or something?
    Maybe he will start pushing Triple 7 if he doesnt like the way American is headed-or if someone makes it worth his time!

    Knight Rifles was bough tout in 1998 by EBSCO Industries and I haven't heard about it being bought by anyone else since then. Of course it is possible. Here's a link to EBSCO and all of the companies it owns. Knight is a small link in the company.

    Jack,
    Have you heard anything about Tony Knight being out of the loop as far as management and design?

    Jack,
    Guess thats what capitalism is all about-it looks like he aint the only one that has sold out. I dont own a Knight or ever probably will, but it was nice to think that a real person and and not some big corporation was out there doing development, and quality control on something. From what I understand Tony was a leader in the industry early on.
