In Honor Of John Moses Browning’s Birthday

January 23, 2014 marks the 159th anniversary of the birth of John Moses Browning in Ogden, Utah Territory. The poster below illustrates the breadth of Browning’s design genius as well as its prolific nature. No firearm designer in history has designed as many different firearms that have stood the test of time for so long.

Examining the list of guns he designed, variations of the 1911, the Auto-5 shotgun, the Winchester 1892, and the M-2 .50 BMG heavy machine gun are still in use on a regular basis.
