Aftermath Gun Club has posted images of the Leader T2-derived AAA SAP pistol on its firearms identification site ID.Gun.FM. The Leader T2 was not a commercial success, resulting in the dissolution of Charles St. George’s company Armtech Pty Ltd in 1983. The patents were subsequently sold off to the Australian Automatic Arms company (AAA) who produced Leader derivatives in 16.25″, 10.5″ carbine, and a 10.5″ pistol variant. The latter, called the SAP, was imported to the United States for a brief time.
