John M Browning (1855-1926) is known for his improvements to guns. At the age of 13 while working in his Dad's gun shop he made his first self cocking single shot rifle which he and his brother would sell the rights to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. As he grew older his sold over 120 patents to other gun manufacturers Colt, Remington,Winchester and Stevens companies. Some of his most famous guns made are the Winchester Model 1886 lever-action rifle, the Remington Model 1905 semiautomatic shotgun, and the Colt Model 1911 semiautomatic pistol. His Browning automatic rifle was used by the military for many many years. If you are ever in the Ogden, Utah area you can visit the John M Browning FireArms Museum.
