Read this first. Many of us at Browning first read this book when we came to work for Browning. We all thought we knew a great deal about him, but nearly everyone is wrong. The extent of his contributions to firearms design and innovation is mind boggling.
Time after time he came forward with the right design for the right time. Some of them changed America forever, especially the early lever action rifles and pump shotguns he designed for Winchester Repeating Arms. Some change the world, like this contributions to military rifle designs like the .30 caliber machine gun, the 50 caliber M2 ("ma deuce" as it is often called), the 1911A, the BAR and many others. Read the book and you will understand why he is often referred to as a genius of firearms design.
Beyond firearms, he lived an amazing life. As the son of a Mormon pioneer (who incidentally happened to be a gunsmith and fine designer in his own right), he made Ogden, Utah the center of innovation in firearms design for over half a century.
