You seem to be a smart, honest, hard working guy, if you are ever seriously going to build parts give me a PM and we'll talk about a partnership.
There are ways around the trademark issue which is to simply not include any. Many people may gripe but personally I think a gun looks cleaner without trades. You can make your own trades such as "SUPER NEIL_N .50 ACP".
The design of the actual parts may or may not be patented or trademarked. There are things you can do to get around these legal issues. Building a part or some select parts would be quite profitable and legal. Assembling them and building all of the parts that constitute a replica gun not legal.
I'm sure you can make scads of money making body mods/conversion kits to turn "X" gun into a working storm trooper blaster, guns for sci-fi movies etc.
Do you know what ruins airsoft?
