John Moses Browning & His Impact on Gun Design

While most firearms owners know the iconic Browning brand and the easily recognized Buck Mark deer-head-with-antlers logo, few realize how much the work of the hands of John Moses Browning has impacted the shooting sports—and the firearms they own and shoot.

While Browning is well known as the inventor of the highly-favored M1911 pistol along with the Browning Hi Power pistol, he also designed and brought to production many other popular firearms. These include some of the earliest versions of pocket pistols in the 1890s, numerous models of shotguns such as the 1897 and the world-famous A5 semi-automatic shotgun, and he is credited with creating today’s over/under shotgun that was originally manufactured in Belgium as the Superposed series.

Then there were numerous military rifles and several water-cooled machine guns. Many of the firearms we own, cherish and use today began as a thought in the mind of Browning.

10 .22 LR Conversion Kits for Your Favorite EDC Pistol

by Andy Massimilian - Monday, October 7, 2019

Converting a centerfire pistol to rimfire dates back to the 1930s, when Colt released the Ace .22 LR M1911 and then sold a conversion kit based on it. Later on, conversion kits in the U.S. were made for the M1911, Beretta 92, SIG Sauer P series, CZ-USA CZ-75 and Glock G17 and G19. Those designs have endured, but new kits are now made for Springfield Armory’s XD series, Kel-Tec’s PF-9 and P11, polymer-frame CZ pistols and the Ruger LC9 and LC380 pistols.
