This is Kodak's blatant (and illegal) copy of the 1892 Boston Bull's-Eye. It is virtually identical, with the exception of the shutter design. Kodak used the Tisdale shutter (also used in the 1895 Pocket Kodak). Boston's D-shaped red window on the back was copied in the 1895 Bullet, as well as the fall-out ratchet wheel under the take-up film spool. Even the latching design of the Boston Bull's-Eye, in the form of a knurled screw on the underside to hold it together (unlike the sliding latch of Kodak's 1896 and later models), was copied. However, unlike the Boston version, Kodak's latching screw fits into an indentation so the camera can sit flat.

Kodak released this Bull's-Eye clone in February 1895 under the name “Bullet” – the bullet was aimed at the Bull's-Eye, so to speak. The new Kodak Bullet clearly infringed Turner's patents, and Boston Camera Mfg. Co. confronted George Eastman in June 1895. Eastman then negotiated a licensing agreement to use those patents, but he quickly realized he would be financially better off to simply buy out the Boston Camera Mfg. Co. and take ownership of the patents and trademarks rather than paying royalties, which he did in August (for $22,000 plus inventory costs). With the patents and trademarks in hand, Eastman released Kodak's first camera under the Bull's-Eye name in late 1895 (the 1896 Model). Consequently, this infringing version of the Bullet was only in the market for a few months. Kodak produced other cameras under the Bullet name later.
