the reason is probably due to having Walther parts,
maybe I have answered my own question.

then again maybe Walther dont mind having it's name stamped on so called cheap guns.

I purchased a cheap standard AR20 FT and can say that I have enjoyed shooting it with no issues, I have also enjoyed customizing the rifle to my own speck and ways that I wanted things made there is nothing bought off the shelf as such.
Funnily enough i was just checking out the list of shooters at the 2015 HFT worlds and guess how may AR20's are in the line up?.....nada....I wonder whether they're booked in as Walthers?
