Subject: Kahr Arms Wins Lawsuit against Diamondback Firearms
Pearl River, NY-(Ammoland.com)- On Thursday, March 25th, a jury in Florida found Diamondback Firearms guilty of patent infringement of Kahr Arms’ (Saeilo, Inc.) patent number 5,502,914. The lawsuit filed in 2011, states that Diamondback Firearms infringed upon the patent by using Kahr’s exclusive cocking cam trigger system into their own firearms. Currently, Kahr holds seven U.S. patents for their exclusive locking, firing, and extraction systems. The cocking cam trigger system employs a patented cam to both unlock the passive safety and complete cocking and releasing of the firing pin. The system provides a “safe cam action” and a smooth double action only trigger stroke.

The cocking cam trigger system patent was granted to Kahr Arms founder Justin Moon on April 2, 1996. This design is found on all Kahr firearms.

The court not only ruled that Diamondback Firearms had infringed on the patent, but also that the patent is valid and uniquely belongs to Kahr Arms.

Bye-Bye Diamonback. Hey Ruger - keep copying KelTec all you want, but stay away from Kahr! And to think, we bitch about the Red Chinese stealing our intellectual property. Sheeesh.
