I've been reading about the IWI Masada pistol and am amazed how closely it resembles the RAP. Both have the same design layout and controls, The outlines are eerily close down to the upside down vee shape on the bottom of the grip which corresponds to the shape of the mag baseplate. Field stripped, the components look the same to my eyes. Mebbe Ruger quietly made a deal with IWI to use the design with minor changes?

Looks like I am not the first person to see the resemblance.
