  • Publication number: 20190170462
    Abstract: A self-loading pistol comprising a magazine shaft which can receive a magazine; a retainer which can hold the magazine releasably in the magazine shaft; and a magazine release which can cause the retainer to release the magazine. The magazine release can be operated from both sides of the self-loading pistol and comprises two release buttons which are arranged on different sides of the self-loading pistol. The magazine release further comprises two release levers which are disposed on different sides of the self-loading pistol. The magazine can be released by actuating either release button and/or by actuating either release lever.

  • Patent number: 7731894
    Abstract: A method for producing a breech slide of a firearm in a metal injection molding process. The process includes the following steps: a green body is injected in an injection mold. The green body is cooled. The binder is removed from the green body to form a brown body. Then the brown body is sintered.

  • Patent number: 7262403
    Abstract: A safety or security light grid for monitoring a protected field having a light transmitting strip, which has a row of light transmitters arranged alongside each other, and a light receiving strip, which has light receivers arranged alongside each other associated with respective light transmitters, so that a plurality of parallel light barriers form the protected field. There is at least one control and evaluation unit, which controls and evaluates the individual light barriers for generating a warning signal when one or more light barriers are interrupted by an object. The light grid has two input elements and at least one display element for configuring the light grid.

  • Patent number: 7087884
    Abstract: A light barrier or light grid which has at least one light emitter arranged in a first housing and at least one associated light receiver arranged in a second housing. At least one emitter of visible alignment light installed in the first or the second housing generates one or more alignment light beams which is used to geometrically orient the light emitter relative to the opposite light receiver. For optically aligning the two housings, at least one alignment mechanism is present in the housing which receives the alignment beam. The alignment mechanism has at least one surface which optically deflects the alignment beam towards a target plane.

  • Publication number: 20060084054
    Abstract: The present invention provides novel isolated polynucleotides and small molecule target polypeptides encoded by the polynucleotides. Antibodies that immunospecifically bind to a novel small molecule target polypeptide or any derivative, variant, mutant or fragment of that polypeptide, polynucleotide or antibody are disclosed, as are methods in which the small molecule target polypeptide, polynucleotide and antibody are utilized in the detection and treatment of a broad range of pathological states. More specifically, the present invention discloses methods of using recombinantly expressed and/or endogenously expressed proteins in various screening procedures for the purpose of identifying therapeutic antibodies and therapeutic small molecules associated with diseases. The invention further discloses therapeutic, diagnostic and research methods for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders involving any one of these novel human nucleic acids and proteins.
