The other night while searching patents for another post I stumbled across the patent for the automag.
It was submitted in march of 92. This means in march, the patent for the automag is expired.
I wonder if this means we will see some wanna be mags hitting the scene??
Patent # US005280778
This is the first design. For instance the RT mag which was filed in oct of 99 is still valid until oct 2018. there are also some other patents that are still valid, like the z grip which Mr. Kotsiopoulos submitted in 98.
Mr Kaye's last name is not really Kaye. It is Kotsiopoulos which originally made finding his patents difficult lol. I'd start calling him, Tom "k" as well.
But as for the original designs, that are not using any of the other patented features, I wonder if we will see clones...
In modern war... you will die like a dog for no good reason.

I don't see it happening with many modern systems being more efficient and faster via elecotronics. Qualifier(faster w/out rt which is not allowable at some places.)

The Axe is basically what an MQ valved Automag would be.
