Patents by Inventor C. Ross Cohlmia

C. Ross Cohlmia has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 9945632
    Abstract: Electromagnetic force holds a reciprocatively movable bolt in a charged position in resistance to compressive force from a bolt actuating spring, while generating recoil impacts that simulate firing rounds of ammunition from an ammunition belt in imitation machine gun. Terminating the electromagnetic force allows the compressive force from the actuating spring to move the bolt from the charged position after simulating the firing of the last round from the ammunition belt.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: November 14, 2014
    Date of Patent: April 17, 2018
    Assignee: Pathfinder Systems, Inc.
    Inventors: Kyle Lowrance, C. Ross Cohlmia

  • Patent number: 9746272
    Abstract: A muzzle flash from firing a live ammunition round from an actual machine gun is stimulated in an imitation machine gun by locating a LED light source within a flash suppressor attached to a muzzle end of a barrel of the imitation machine gun. When energized, the light source emits a burst of light through vents in the flash suppressor. A plurality of LEDs create the burst of light.

  • Patent number: 9746273
    Abstract: The recoil of an actual machine gun is simulated in an imitation machine gun by converting linearly reciprocating movement of an output shaft of a linear actuator into reciprocating movement of all or part of the imitation machine gun.
