Do any of the wikis or any of that have lists of patents? Having hit a couple of wars this semester at school, I've had a few ideas on how to make guns that work better than the current set, but the two big worries are patents and liability. It'd be nice to see about standing on some giant's shoulders, rather than start from scratch myself. Liability is something I'd have to talk to a lawyer about anyway, so I'm not too concerned about that here. Big thing is I'm be looking at production and selling commercially eventually, and would be catering mostly to modders and serious gaming folk by revealing details of designs intended for easy experimentation, and offering a line already set up for higher velocities.
Just noticed the defaults for the search box. No wonder my first search for this didn't come up with anything. I'll take the hit, but this is somewhat superfluous now.
