John M. Browning- American Gunmaker Hardcover Book
Known in many circles as "the world's greatest gun inventor," John M. Browning made his first firearm at the age of 13 but didn't stop there, eventually receiving 128 gun patents in his lifetime. Now you can learn how he did it in John M. Browning: American Gunmaker, the authentic biography of the man who invented pistols, rifles, and shotguns for Winchester, Remington, Colt, Fabrique Nationale, and others.
Browning's most successful firearms included the M1911 pistol, the Browning .50-caliber machine gun, the Browning automatic rifle, and the groundbreaking Browning Auto-5 semiautomatic machine gun. His Colt 1911, Browning 1917/19, and BAR were popular among the U.S. forces during World War I, World War II, and the Korean War, while some of his other military weapons--such as the Browning Hi-Power, M2 Browning machine gun--are still in use today around the world.
John M. Browning: American Gunmaker includes a 100-page photographically illustrated technical section that describes all of Browning's inventions.
