Well like I said, I'm pretty sure the specific details of the patent infringement related to the tail design And I'm pretty sure all of the X- series bolts had a different tail design with internal sleeve o-rings rather than external stem o-rings.
It may be a US patent, so it wouldn't prevent bolts from being manufactured in Europe, but I believe it would restrict them from being distributed within the US.
