Thursday, January 241:00 PMRetay ArmsRetay Arms Patented Inertia Plus Bolt System
Chris Handy"Retay Arms Receives U.S. Patenta Approval for Innovative Rotating Bolt System. The innovation of the “Click Free” bolt system has been officially recognized in US PATENT 9,995,542 and is currently available in the Retay Inertia Plus ™ system. Konya Turkey announces that on June 12, 2018 the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued PATENT 9,995,542 for “Rotating head assembly for use with the bolt assembly of a gun” in recognition of RETAY’s innovation of a rotating bolt head system that prevents the unintended unlocking of the bolt head from the breach of a firearm.

RETAY began developing its rotating bolt system in an effort to achieve a more reliable rotating bolt head for use in semi-automatic firearms. For decades the traditional kinetic energy powered rotating bolt system has enjoyed popularity for its simple design and ease of maintenance however, the original design was plagued by a tendency of the bolt head to unintentionally unlock from the breach of the firearm when it was jarred by walking over rough terrain or by the impact of setting the firearm down. The resulting unlocking would often go unnoticed by the operator and cause a misfire. To prevent a misfire, the operator would have to first be aware of the state of the bolt and then manually re-engage the action which cost time and unnecessary noise that could startle game."
