Hexmag Awarded Patent for Their True Riser System

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

Hexmag has recently been awarded the patent on our True Riser in our 10 and 15 round magazines. This patent is very important to us as we have developed an evolutionary system to offer factory made 10 and 15 round magazines for capacity restricted states.

The Hexmag True Riser system for standard size Hexmag magazines was carefully engineered, with the Ar-15 consumer in capacity restricted states mind. You get a standard size magazine that is magazine pouch friendly, looks natural in your AR-15 and can still be dissembled for normal, routine cleaning/maintenance or to change the HexID system.

It features our patented True Riser and a short spring, the True Riser brings the base of the spring up mimicking internally, a dedicated 10 or 15 round tiny magazine without the drawbacks of a tiny magazine. This has all been done here at the Hexmag facility to eliminate 3rd party dealer “blocking”, “pinning”, or “gluing” the magazines. Ultimately saving the dealer and consumer considerable amounts of money. Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazines have the same MSRP as the standard capacity 30 round Hexmag magazines of $14.99.

Our HX10/30 10 round magazines were made for California, New York, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Chicago, Connecticut, Washington DC. The Hexmag HX15/30 15 round magazines were made for New Jersey and Colorado. If you live in one of these states or areas with a magazine capacity restriction you are not alone, rest assured that Hexmag has your back.

All Hexmag magazines come with a Lifetime Warranty. For more information please visit the Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazine page on our website.

    Kryptek Outdoor Group Announces Final Judgement In Copyright, Patent, and Trademark Infringement Case Against Salt Armour, Inc., Alpha Defense, Inc. And Thomas J. De Sernia.

    Thursday, May 5th, 2016

    Defendants found guilty of willful infringement

    BEAUMONT, TX, May 4, 2016. Kryptek Outdoor Group, LLC, a cutting-edge camouflage and apparel solutions company founded by U.S. Army veterans, today announced that the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas has rendered a Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction against Defendants Salt Armour, Inc., Alpha Defense, Inc. and Thomas J. DeSernia for infringement of Kryptek’s intellectual property, resolving a lawsuit filed by Kryptek on September 9, 2015.

    Kryptek filed the lawsuit after Defendants ignored Kryptek’s multiple requests to cease and desist brazenly creating, offering for sale, and selling counterfeit copies of Kryptek’s camouflage patterns and products in an attempt to capitalize on the uniqueness and popularity the Kryptek patterns. Kryptek developed and released its innovative patterns and products in connection with the U.S. Army Camouflage Improvement Effort begun in 2011. Defendants further falsely claimed on their websites that the counterfeited patterns were their exclusive creations and tried to conceal their true origin by renaming them.

    The Court’s Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction of March 29, 2016 found that Defendants had infringed on Kryptek’s copyrighted and patented camouflage patterns and willfully infringed on Kryptek’s trademarks, and ordered Defendants to pay One Million, Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars ($1,075,000.00) as damages for the infringement, plus attorneys’ fees and costs of court. The Court also permanently enjoined Defendants from further infringing activities.

    “Blatant attempts to misappropriate and capitalize on others’ innovative creations do not garner a lot of respect in my book,” said Butch Whiting, CEO/Co-founder of Kryptek. “We are pleased that the Court put a stop to this and is holding the Defendants accountable for their actions. We also hope this judgment sends a clear signal of our intentions to vigorously defend against further theft of our creations moving forward, both domestically and abroad.”

    The case is Kryptek Outdoor Group, LLC v. Salt Armour, Inc., Alpha Defense, Inc., and Thomas J. De Sernia, case number 1:15-cv-00348-RC, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Beaumont Division. Kryptek is represented by Stewart Mesher and Darlene Ghavimi of Conley Rose P.C.
