To whom it may concern,
I wish to introduce my invention to your company for your consideration. I am currently working on a quick release version of my invention which would also be presented to a company if interested.
I received my Patent on March 21, 2017 (Patent #9,599,432).
I am an United States Air Force Veteran who has always had an interest in firearms and recently received my certification as a gun smith. Here is some background on how I came up with my invention:
I got the chance to purchase a firearm that I wanted to add features to. I wanted a Folding Bayonet so it would be out of the way when not needed and opened fast when needed. I wanted it to be able to be installed on the common Picatinny/Weaver rail system that many have and can get very easily. I bought a picatinny rail that I could add to the front of my firearm and that is where the fun began. I found out while doing a lot of research that there are other means for installing bayonets but all of them have specific ways it has to be done and I could not find any that allowed any type of knife to be installed. My invention changes all of that by making it easy to install any type of knife (Spring assisted folding, Tactical, Stiletto, Bayonet, Hunting Knife, etc...) on any Picatinny/Weaver style rail. This invention would benefit Military, Police, Hunters, Gun Enthusiasts, etc.
After many attempts I came up with my prototype which worked very good. I built a few more and tested them on ebay with great results. I sold around eight (8) prototypes (a year ago) that sold for $36.00 to $100.00 and received some very good feedback (feedback available). I contacted the United States Patent Commission USPC and was told to pull my prototype off of ebay which I did and started the process of getting my Provisional Patent. While they were doing the patent search and I was going through the process (paperwork), I made some well needed modifications to my prototype that makes it so much more versatile. What I have come up with now has unlimited uses. You can install any type of knife (Spring assisted folding, Tactical, Stiletto, Bayonet, Hunting Knife, etc...) on any Picatinny/Weaver style rail and still be able to add attachments. This mount's design makes the use pretty much unlimited.
I am looking for a company that would be interested in a license agreement or any other offers. I know from the feedback I have received that there is a calling for this accessory to be on the market!
Thank you for your time and consideration in listening to what I have invented and I look forward to hearing back from you. Feel free to call me with any questions.
