I talked to george at my local store today... (warped sportz) and i asked about the BT M16 Apex barrel, apparently BT is in a Lawsuit because they look to much like the real thing! I checvked their website and couldnt find it, and when i went to see the regular M16 barrel i had to click a bunch of links to get to the price info.!

Usually you click buy now and it takes you to a page wjere you can make your purchase. but now you have to go tp the sidelinks and click "BT Accessories. then scroll to the bottom and click M16 Barrels)

Also they dropped the price on thm.

H&K was officially suing them over a year ago because of the TM7 looked so much like the MP7 but it never flew. Didn't fly because the TM7 is a paintball gun and the MP7 is a....well....gun. I doubt this will fly either.

I strongly doubt that this is a legit story. M16 lookalikes have been around for the longest.

How does BT get sued and not those airsoft company's?

BT Apex barely even look like an M-16.

I like h&K guns but they sue everybody, they sued the makers of the gsg5 which was a 22caliber that was just like their mp5, it actually worked just like the mp5, but instead of being 9mm it was a 22 cal

Hold up, isn't the MP5 derived from the G3, which is, in turn, a licence of the CETME Mod.A? Surely H&K are themselves infringing copyright by saying everyone else is infringing "their" copyright... H&K haven't produced anything original except for the G11, and that wasn't exactly a raging success...

Which fits in here nicely, IIRC, the design and likeness of the M4 and M16 are owned by the US Department of Defense, not Colt.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not really up to par on copyright laws :huh:
