Fostech Outdoors sues Slide Fire Solutions

In early March of 2012, Fostech Outdoors filed suit against Slide Fire Solutions claiming patent infringement.

Fostech purchased the rights to Bill Akins patent which was issued back in August of 2000.  Mr. Akins patent protects several key principals of the "bumpfire stock"technology.  Fostech contends that Slide Fire Solutions purposely violated this patent with their SSAR15 stock product.

Fostech is seeking an injunction, damages, attorney fees from Slide Fire Solutions.

I'll keep you posted as I learn more about these proceedings.

  1. oh boy.....

    hopefully this case doesnt draw the eyes of the ATF. I just bought a Fostech stock. Slidefire in my oppinion looks cheap and is plastic, on the other hand Fostech's Defendar-15 is aluminum, So i chose to purchase a Defendar-15.

    again, i hope Fostech doesnt run into issues with design and legality because of this case.
