At the range this morning a gentleman saw my Atlas bipod and mentioned that he just really wasn’t happy with his. I was standing about five feet away from his rig and could see that it was a fake Atlas. He was sure it was legit because it says “Atlas Patented” on the bipod and the box had Atlas marked on it. I pulled my real Atlas off of the MATEN and pointed out the differences. I even showed him that the “problem” he was having with his didn’t exist on the legit model. THIS is the issue. He is a pretty friendly guy. There is no telling how many people he told about his “problem”. This may have cost several sales and cost B&T Industries some revenue. In addition, this guy got suckered into buying a Chinese product when he thought he was getting a good deal on an American made piece of hardware. I don’t have any issue with guys who just don’t like the Atlas or who think they are overpriced. That’s fine, don’t buy them. I just have issues with people who will buy stolen intellectual property and try to justify it. I have an even bigger problem with scumbags who will pass off counterfeit products and ripoff shooters who don’t know how to spot them.
