    The Guns of John Moses Browning

    Hey guys,

    Although not a vintage book, I just finished reading a very, very good book titled, “The Guns of John Moses Browning”, authored by Nathan Gorenstein. The book was published this year and is a must read for firearm enthusiast. It’s an excellent and enjoyable read. The author does an extremely good job portraying details of the life of John Browning and all the firearms he gets credit for inventing including the problems he overcame during the designs. Without boring the reader with nitty-gritty details it touches on the majority of his 128 firearm patents used for plinking, hunting and the various designs used in all the wars and conflicts since WW1 and how the firearms are typically used. As you well know, many are currently in production around the world.

    I saw a documentary of the same title now I need to read that book, Winchester sure changed things when they turned him down and big chief at Remington died forcing browning too seek manufacturers in Japan and elsewhere to produce his designs.
    I happen to have one of the no name Japanese a5's that got me searching for info on who and why it was built in Japan
