John Moses Browning

Written by: George Chittenden : 18 Dec 2019

This interesting photograph was taken in 1917 and features one of the most famous inventors of firearms, John M. Browning. In the photo he is posing with his early water-cooled Model 1917 .30 caliber machine gun. That gun went on to evolve into many variants which were used on land, sea and in the air during WWI, WWII, Korea, and even up to the early days of the Vietnam conflict.

Arguably, his greatest legacy was a hunting shotgun with over-and-under barrels which eventually became the world renowned B25. John M. Browning was working on the shotgun when he died in 1926, and his son Val Allen Browning took over, and completed his father’s work. The B25 has been handmade entirely in Belgium since 1931 and is the flagship of The John M Browning Collection.
