Abstract

A compact action for a firearm including an upper receiver housing incorporating a barrel. A bolt and carrier are positioned within the receiver housing so that the bolt is engaged to a rear receiver end of the barrel in a cartridge chambering position. Guide rods are supported within the housing above the barrel and extend in parallel to a rear located end plate. The carrier includes a carrier key supported by and displaceable along the guide rods between the barrel and a rearward bumper component. A gas tube extends from a forward located gas block overlaying a gas discharge aperture in the barrel to a gas key for actuating the carrier rearwardly following discharge of a ballistic from the barrel. A fixed ejector is attached to the upper receiver, in combination with machining a slot into the carrier and the bolt, such that the ejector remains static such that, upon the bolt cycling, the spent shell casing contacts the ejector, causing it to be ejected out of the upper receiver.

Abstract

A magazine for a firearm with a magazine well and a reciprocating bolt. A body of the magazine is engaged within the well and has a top, interconnected front, sides and rear walls, and a bottom defining a cartridge holding interior. A spring supported within the interior contacts the bottom and upwardly biases a follower positioned atop the spring toward an opening in the top, through which the cartridges are loaded into the magazine. A feed tower integrated into the top supports a pair of feed lips positioned along opposed edges defining the opening. An aperture is formed in the top rearward of the feed tower. A rear upward projection of the follower aligns with the aperture and, following discharge of a final cartridge, elevates above the top in order to actuate a separate bolt catch or bolt hold open adaptor to prevent a forward returning motion of the bolt.

Abstract

A delayed rotary blowback mechanism integrated into a firearm bolt and carrier subassembly. A plurality of radial locking lugs are configured at a rear end of the bolt and seat within a mating profile of an upper receiver interior or integrated trunnion in a fully chambered position. A plurality of chamfered locations are configured between the lugs and a receiving profile in the barrel or trunnion for influencing linear to rotational motion of the bolt. A cam pin extends upwardly from the bolt and seats through a circumferentially directed slot configured within the bolt carrier. Upon initiating of the discharge cycle, signaled by the round traveling through and out the end of the barrel, the chamfered configuration results in the bolt and cam pin rotating within the carrier and the lugs subsequently separating from the receiver or trunnion, with the bolt and associated carrier retaining sufficient inertia to cycle through the discharge cycle to the set position concurrent with reloading a subsequent cartridge.

Abstract

A delayed blowback mechanism integrated into a firearm bolt and carrier subassembly. A cam pin extends from the bolt and, upon initiation of the cartridge discharge cycle, engages a guiding clearance or pocket configured within the firearm upper receiver for providing recoil and discharge force attenuation in a radial delayed fashion during cycling of the bolt carrier group. Recoil attenuation between the cam pin and upper receiver clearance can be provided alone or assisted by chamfer or angled contour to either or both of the radially projecting and rear contact surfaces of the bolt locking lugs and the opposing inward projections configured within the barrel extension grooves. In any variant, the bolt and associated carrier retain sufficient inertia to cycle through the discharge cycle to the set position concurrent with reloading a subsequent cartridge.

Abstract

An auto sear for a firearm having a lower receiver with a trigger, disconnector and hammer, and an upper receiver with a reciprocating bolt carrier group. The sear includes a body pivotally mounted within the lower receiver rearwardly of the trigger, disconnector and hammer. The body includes a forward-most planar shaped portion in which are configured each of lower and upper trip engagement location. Upon the hammer initially striking the firing pin, the bolt carrier subsequently displaces rearwardly following cartridge discharge in order to rotate the hammer downwardly into contact with the lower trip engaging location. Upon a return forward displacement of the bolt carrier, an underside ledge thereof contacts the upper trip engaging location in order to pivot the lower engaging location out of contact with the hammer, permitting the same to rotate back into striking contact with the firing pin.

Abstract

A bolt catch assembly configured for operating with rimfire ammunition for use with a firearm including a receiver with an exposed receiving chamber. The assembly includes a bolt catch actuator housing supported in seating fashion relative to the receiving chamber and communicating with an attachable magazine. A catch actuator is supported in elevatable fashion relative to an end of the actuator housing. A bolt catch component and integrally formed actuator catch engaging portion is slaved to the catch actuator in order to be displaced in response to elevating motion exerted upon the catch actuator, such as by a follower component biasingly disposed within the magazine. The follower, in its uppermost displaced position within the attached magazine, engages a tab associated with the catch actuator which extends over a communicating interior of the bolt catch actuator housing in communicating alignment with the exposed receiving chamber. An end configured location of the bolt catch housing includes a step and ledge profile for supporting an underside of the catch actuator in each of a seated rest position as well as a follower induced and upwardly displaced position.
