OK first off i want to know whats going on with kingmans rocking trigger, i thought leon has the patent for that, Also companies are making the p frame which removes the hammer and all that just like the osiris and i also heard talk of a MQ valve witch is a electronically controled valve which also sounds a lot like the osiris. SO whats the deal here, did leon sell the patent or are they infringing on his patent????
The MQ valve is nothing like the Osiris. The MQvalve is a whole solenoid instead of the hammer/ram+sheridan valve. The Osiris is a ram based cocker. The solenoid activated ram was pionered by the Angel V6 long ago. Even before that, the Vector had a mechanically activated ram. And the P Frame does what the Osiris does, but mechanically.
Neither of this concepts are really ground breaking nor "inventions that are non aobvoius to an expert in the trades". But then the USPTO let's you have anything. In fact, they are only paid if they approve your patent. But I digress, I won't get into this.
