Could a licensing deal be worked out where the respective countries silly laws could be 'skirted' and you could be compensated for your design and avoid border issues by striking a deal?  If you could get your pound of flesh for every one sold in Canada, and they could profit from the manufacturing and marketing troubles a little...would that make nice for everyone and future developments could be shared?

Not saying this didn't start off totally wrong in ethics in the first place, but having two locations in two countries that can make the adapter...and a little respect paid to the original designer monetarily....it seems common ground could be reached.

"Designed in Texas, but Made in Canada"  With a big Lone Star with a tiny Maple Leaf in the middle of the logo? I dunno...it is a great idea that should be available wherever you live...theft of said idea on the same continent no less is wrong, but I would love to see everybody happy in the end...
All Bubbas deserve bayonets....figure out a way.
SKS-files.com and SKSguide.com....because everything else is just piss....

Coming soon!  SKSparts.net

Funny you mention that idea. We have a PLAN. Can't give details, but it won't be with HiCal.

I like it...
      
1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

Guys, go to the HiCal "post your SKS rifle" thread. I just posted pix of mine with our G9 with dates from 2014 on them. Post away, but be nice.

We've split this topic off of Crazysquids posting.

Everyone needs to remember rule #5:

5. Try to stay on topic, do not thread jack. We know conversations can meander, but if it gets out of hand, either PM each other or we will step in and clean up the thread.

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I would suggest that whatever problem that Marcus has with HiCal be resolved between the two of them. Nothing good ever comes from groups of people taking sides and hurling insults at each other on other boards.  I'd very much prefer SKS-Files not receive that type of publicity.

Thanks,

-RM

PLEASE, don't badmouth HiCal just post your position that HiCal pirated my design. Be professional and polite.

Way to costly. We have a better plan. In fact, it is currently in full swing. Details next week.

I didn't want to leave you guys in the dark. Plan is swinging into action. It will be in early August when in full operation.
