Samuel Colt invented the first revolver - named after its revolving cylinder. He was issued a U.S. patent in 1836 for the Colt firearm equipped with a revolving cylinder containing five or six bullets with an innovative cocking device. In 1836, there were a lot of obstacles in the machining process that cannot compete with today's CNC machine technologies. Years ago, it was hard and costly (If not impossible) to integrate some of the features seen on today's bipods. Most bipod manufactures today follow some of these same procedures to fabricate their products.
Since 1985, KFS Industries has been an industry leader in design and innovation for all our products. We are consistently looking for new ways to improve the firearms industry. Thinking outside the box and today's machining technologies allow KFS to incorporate exciting new features exclusive to our Kensight line of gun sights and Versa-pod bipods.
During the 1980s and 1990s, KFS focused on sales of semiautomatic assault rifles. However, after the 1994 Assault Weapon Ban Da Keng (President of KFS) decided to diversify the product line. Instead of selling firearms, Da began to design shooting and hunting accessories, drawing from his extensive knowledge of guns. In 1995, KFS came out with the first Versa-Pod Bipod, a rugged multi-function bipod that made improvements on the old Parker-Hale models. In 1997, KFS introduced a line of specialty high-end gun sights, now marketed under the brand name Kensight. Da Keng now has over a dozen patents to his name, both for his bipod and gun sight designs.
