well it has happened. seems that it did go through the patent office just awaiting review?


The patent office really doesn't look at anything when it's first filed. As long as the paperwork is complete, they take it. The problem with that is it allows bull crap patents to be put in place, leading to even more bullcrap lawsuits. You could probably repatent the incandescent light bulb and no one in the office would notice.

I clicked on the "Description" tab and found this statement which describes Smart Parts reasoning behind selling a dis-assembled marker in kit form. I think the two main ideas are the player, by assembling the gun himself, becomes more familiar with it's operation and there is a cost reduction since the end user assembles the marker and not SP.

What I don't get is since SP thinks this is such a great idea, why haven't they already brought it to market. You don't have to wait for the patent to be approved before doing so. Many companies bring their products to market "Patent Pending".

"According to yet another aspect of the present invention, the paintball gun may be arranged and sold to an end user in component, or "kit" form. All of the necessary operating components could be arranged in a single package or multiple packages to allow a user to buy the paintball gun kit and construct the paintball gun themselves, hi (sic) this manner, a user will gain an increased familiarity with the paintball gun and its manner of construction and operation. The paintball gun will thereby be easier for them to troubleshoot and maintain. Providing a "kit" form of a paintball gun also allows for greater user customization, multiple packaging configurations, and a greater variety in price points to consumers. Reduction in labor costs by removing assembly from the manufacturing process allows the gun kit to be sold to consumers for a lower price than the fully-constructed marker. The paintball gun kits could be sold in partially assembled or completely disassembled forms. The paintball gun kits could further be sold in many different configurations, with different upgrade options, body styles, material components, etc., in order to meet the desires and price ranges of a wider variety of consumers."

the thing is it has already been brought into market.....by 25 years at least.

examples are the following starting with earliest

aftermarket bodies for nelspot pistols

challenger 007 kits for nelspot
Aerostar kits
Cal Ordinance Mercenary kits for sheridans
autococking kits for sheridans before the cockers
automags which usualy were sold without a barrel (according to the abstract, it means a kit)
and according to the abstract, every marker sold since ~1993ish then that came in a styrofoam lined box

Don't forget every new X7, sold with optional upgrades in "kit" form...

There's really only one way for those of us that disapprove of Smart Parts methods of business conduct to fix this. DON'T BUY FROM SMART PARTS. It solves the problem. The only Smart Parts item I've ever bought was a barrel that I got off eBay and made into a plunger handle. Works great. Smart Parts cleans my toilet every time I eat Mexican food.
