  • Patent number: 8985005
    Abstract: A mechanism for a repeating firearm has a body pivotably mounted within the receiver and movable between a first position where it blocks motion of the bolt carrier, and a second position where it engages either the trigger or the hammer to prevent discharge. In operation the body is moved from the first position to the second to release the bolt carrier, which moves into battery. The body is then allowed to move out of the second position toward the first position. The rife may be discharged by a pull of the trigger, and the bolt carrier moves out of battery and is arrested by the body before moving back to battery. If the body is maintained in the second position during operation its engagement with the trigger or hammer prevents discharge of the firearm.

  • Patent number: 8839542
    Abstract: A rifle having a receiver formed of upper and lower receiver portions attached to one another has one or more elastic bodies positioned between facing surfaces of the upper and lower receiver portions. The elastic bodies reduce play or lost motion between the upper and lower receiver portions for improved accuracy.

  • Publication number: 20060242878
    Abstract: A revolver for firing high velocity ammunition includes a frame, a cylinder, a barrel, and a firing mechanism. The revolver may include one or more of the following, each of which is especially adapted for use in the context of firing high velocity ammunition: spacers for adjusting a barrel-cylinder gap, for eliminating broaching of the rearward surface(s) of the barrel; a forcing cone formed in the rearward opening of the barrel for accommodating deformed projectiles; a reflective surface (e.g., mirrored surface) provided on the cone and/or barrel rearward surfaces, for reducing erosion resulting from using high velocity ammunition; gain-twist rifling in the barrel for a smoother transition to full projectile velocity; a larger diameter, hardened firing pin bushing for minimizing brass flow in the rearward direction; and a front sight assembly that minimizes lateral shift or drift of the sight pin during firing.

  • Publication number: 20060094034
    Abstract: An array of nucleic acid probes is described for simultaneously identifying or characterizing a pathotype of a microorganism and detecting antibiotic resistance of said microorganism. Methods are also described for detecting the presence of a microorganism in a sample, as well as determining its pathotype and its antibiotic resistance, using the array.

  • Publication number: 20050260619
    Abstract: An array of nucleic acid probes is described for identifying and/or characterizing a microorganism. Methods are also described for detecting the presence of a microorganism in a sample, as well as determining its pathotype, using the array. Methods of assessing related infection and disease in a subject using the array are also described. Methods that characterize complex microbial communities using the array are also described.
