To some extent yes i ripped it off as you say but i introduced many different aspects to the gun. Also Tom ripped of the valve system and for many years claimed it was his as he did with the blow forward system. Incidentally there can be no patent on a shape.

But he patented the use of a unique design for paintball applications, including that valve. The fact that a similar system is used for another purpose elsewhere is irrelevant. You make a direct clone for the same purpose.

That is, literally, what a design patent is.
