I think the general consensus is... you can make a better product that isnt too much more work and is uniqe.

First of all, why would you copy the WGP pump handle, it sucks, and it's the easiest part to customize.

Second of all, it depends on the volume of your business. You sell 50 pump kits, WGP probably wouldn't even notice. 500, and they might send you a letter telling you to stop. 1,000+ and they'll probably start looking into legal action. All of this depends on the product and the company. If they have no plans of making any more pump kits and don't have a bunch in stock, they most likely won't care, since you have to have a cocker to use your product.

I in no way encourage anybody to make any decision based solely on my opinion.

The Pump handles are not done, I changed the pump handle a bit so maybe this will be Ok, I will get pics of them when the first one is done.

I prefer the feel of the WGP kit over all others.

Keep us updated on what you end up doing.

The key here is "trade dress", and two posters hit it squarely on the head about Action Markers. AM's Illusion "looked like" the Sniper, so WGP charged into action. The general standard is a 10% difference, but that 10% is somewhat subjective. The key is whether buyers will be confused by the appearance over which item was produced by whom.

I came into this figuring you had made like a knife for the pump handle or something and wondered if you could be sued if someone used it.. I swear that's what first popped into my head! Hey! Why are you all backing away?
