  • Patent number: 10060699
    Abstract: A butt structure for a toy gun includes: a butt body, a rear part, two guide rods and a press locking device. The guide rods are inserted at two sides of the butt body and can move together with the rear part. The press locking device is connected to the butt body. The guide rods each include a front cavity and rear cavities. Each of the front cavities includes a hook portion on an inner front surface thereof, and each of the engaging ends includes a front protrusion. Operating the press locking device can make the engaging ends engage with the front or the rear cavities, so as to adjust the position of the rear part back and forth. When the hook portions engage with the front protrusions, the guide rods are fixed to prevent the rear part from being pulled out backwards.

  • Patent number: 10054394
    Abstract: In one aspect, a retractable buttstock may include a buttpad that allows the user to rest the weapon on their shoulders; a pair of extension rods; a buffer tube that allows the buttstock to attach to the firearm; and a buffer tube housing to receive the buffer tube. In an exemplary embodiment, the extension rods are hollow and a resilient unit is received in each extension rod. The extension rods have a pair of first positioning grooves and a pair of second positioning grooves to engage with stoppers of the buffer tube housing. The buttstock can be fully-extended and collapsed depending on whether the stoppers engage with the first or second positioning grooves. It is noted that the user can operate the retractable buttstock with one hand.

  • Patent number: 9791238
    Abstract: A rifle butt stock adjustment actuator having a body with a U-channel configured to fit a base of a telescoping rifle butt stock and operably connect to a butt stock adjustment mechanism is disclosed. The actuator includes a “push” pair of ergonomically shaped finger pressure surfaces disposed on the body and a “pull” pair of ergonomically shaped finger pressure surfaces disposed on the body. When attached to the base of a telescoping rifle butt stock and operably connected to the butt stock adjustment mechanism, pressure applied to the push pair of pressure surfaces actuates the butt stock adjustment mechanism and telescopes the rifle butt stock into a shorter configuration. Pressure applied to the pull pair of pressure surfaces actuates the butt stock adjustment mechanism and telescopes the rifle butt stock into a shorter configuration. Push and pull actuation may include both a torque and translation force.

  • Patent number: 9546836
    Abstract: A bump stock and interface system for a semi-automatic firearm. In use, the user grasps a handle with one hand and places an index finger of the same hand firmly on a finger rest. When intending to fire a round of ammunition, the user pushes the firearm receiver forward with another hand so that the trigger collides with the immobilized finger on the finger rest. Recoil force separates the trigger from the user's finger on the finger rest. The user again pushes forward the receiver to repeat the firing cycle. A lock is selectively activated to arrest longitudinal movement of the firearm relative to the handle, thereby returning the firearm to normal semi-automatic functionality. The lock includes a retractable pin having a tip that rides in a track having a rear stop to limit over-travel of the handle.

  • Patent number: 8863427
    Abstract: An automatically adjustable comb for a firearm that extends a predetermined distance from an initial position, flush with the top of a stock, when the firearm moves to a predetermined angular orientation. The automatic adjustable comb may include a detector that detects when the firearm and/or comb has moved to a predetermined angular orientation with respect to a horizontal orientation. The detector may actuate an actuator to extend the comb the predetermined distance from the initial position. The extension of the comb elevates the top of the comb with respect to the top of the stock. The user may be able to vary both the predetermined angular orientation and the predetermined distance. The detection device may detect when the firearm is lowered to a horizontal orientation from an elevated angular orientation causing the actuator to lower the comb so that it is flush with the stock of the firearm.

  • Patent number: 8844185
    Abstract: A modular firearm comprising an adjustable modular buttstock assembly. The buttstock assembly can include a frame with a central opening. A comb assembly having a cheek piece and a butt plate assembly having a recoil pad each can be mounted to the frame by an adjustment apparatus. Each adjustment apparatus can include of a guide post and/or a threaded adjustment post each received in respective bores in the frame to adjust the positions of the cheek piece and recoil pad. The adjustment apparatus also can include a locking or engagement feature that can selectively increase the friction between the frame and the guide post and/or adjustment post, to help prevent the translation of the guide post and/or adjustment post in the bore in the frame to fix the comb assembly and butt plate assembly in desired positions with respect to the frame.

  • Publication number: 20140259848
    Abstract: An adjustable stock and cheek rest assembly for a firearm includes a buffer tube extending rearwardly from the firearm at an angle relative to the firearm receiver. A stock is slidably mounted on the buffer tube, and a cheek rest is disposed in overlying relationship to the stock. A cheek rest adjustment arrangement is connected between the stock and the cheek rest, and is provided with a movable linkage for enabling vertical movement of the cheek rest relative to the stock as the stock moves along the angled buffer tube. A movable member provided with locking structure is mounted on the stock for selective engagement with lock receiving structure on the buffer tube for locking the stock in various axial adjustment positions along the buffer tube.

  • Publication number: 20140245649
    Abstract: A firearm includes a cocking lever, a shoulder-stock receptacle and a shoulder support having a shoulder stock configured to be joined by a connector to the shoulder-stock receptacle. A shoulder-stock adjuster is configured to adjust a position of the shoulder stock relative to the shoulder-stock receptacle along an adjustment axis. A cheek rest is mounted via a bearing on the shoulder stock so as to be movable in a direction parallel to the adjustment axis. A stop is disposed on the shoulder-stock receptacle so as to limit a movement path of the cheek rest towards a front of the firearm. At a position of the cheek rest defined by the stop of the shoulder-stock receptacle, the cocking lever does not collide with the cheek rest, even in a completely retracted state.

  • Patent number: 8800190
    Abstract: A reciprocating sensory sighting system with a movable cheek weld member is translationally received by a firearm frame which defines a firing chamber and a passageway from an ammunition supply to the chamber. The cheek weld member includes a body, and a frame engagement portion extending therefrom. The frame engagement portion translationally couples to the frame, reciprocating between charging and firing positions to move an ammunition round from the supply, through the passageway, and to the firing chamber. The body has an exterior surface defining a cheek seat for shooter engagement when in the firing position, and an optional rear sight. A reciprocating sensory system, with or without the reciprocating sighting system, is provided with a sensory assisting element supported by the body. A firearm having such a reciprocating cheek weld member and/or a reciprocating sensory system, are also provided, along with a retrofit charging handle system for a firearm.

  • Patent number: 8800189
    Abstract: The present invention is a buffer tube assembly 2 upon which stock modules may be mounted as part of a modular stock system. The best mode buffer tube features a uniform cheek plate 10 with a track 9 disposed underneath the cheek plate 10 on either side. Rail track 8 is disposed on the underside of buffer tube module 2 and is divided in half by a longitudinal groove. Interface detents 5 are provided on the sides of buffer tube module 2. Both rail track 8 and detents 5 are provided for interface with adjustable length stock modules. Individual half-rails of the rail track 8 may be angled to improve interface performance with adjustable for length stock modules. A clip hole 13 is provided as a securement means with fixed length stock modules. The invention may also be practiced as a mounting assembly for those firearms (usually air projection type) that do not require a buffer area.
