Manikes hand in this?

Having read that the B2k5 was a joint venture between ICD and NPS, and seeing the similarities between the new Defiant and Bushmaster and how they used to be the same gun, what are the similarities for the new ones? I would assume (I may be way off) that they were designed around the same prototype (probably designed by manike). Can you clarify any of this manike, or are you sworn to secrecy?

The Defiant 2 was solely designed by Bob, Manike did not participate in this endeavor. Both markers were developed independent of each other, any similarities between the two are coincidental.

Neither gun has anything to do with NPS other than being both ICDs and BLs distributors.
