Well since you brought it up the BRP grip is a welded up steel affair made from the original grip housing, alot more like the ones you offer than mine or wiselites which are both machined from aluminum barstock, so if you are implying I copied their design you should compare your grip housing to the BRP, your first pics from a couple of years ago before you went to the fal are a direct knock off, at least mine were an original design .
yes the mg34 parts I made and that are posted in my build thread are as exact a copy as I could produce based on the pdf sketches posted here but the difference in these and your knock off of the kns spade grips and wla knocking off my grip housing is I am not offering my copy of someone elses hard work for sale.
As far as I know there is absoloutley no law against copying a patented design as a one off for my own personal use. I am not offering them for sale and only produced a couple for my own use based on eyeballing some sketches in a pdf file , in no way does this even begin to compare to the situation where I actualy placed my grip housing in a mans hands who said he would like to use it in an upcoming project who then later just coppied it for use in a for profit project. Get it ?? I can copy anything I would like in a one or two off situatuion for my own personal use with out crossing any moral or ethical line, but what Tony from WLA did is a totaly different situation.
Since you find it neccesary to bring up the 34 parts I made for my own personal use I have to wonder how KNS feels abou you knocking off there ar/m16 spade grip setup with the specific intent of offering them for sale in a for profit venture. They have a patent , does that matter to you?
