Default Re: John Moses Browning

No argument about Browning!

What I would say about Stoner is that while he had a hundred years of cartridge firearms experience to draw upon, he created something ENTIRELY new. That's why I respect his genius so much. His wasn't "just another semi-auto assault rifle". It was like it was from another planet. Given the 100-year history behind him, I consider it 'genius' to NOT build something that was simply a 'derivative' of an earlier design.

Browning is "the Man".

The Mauser brothers gave us what we all call the "bolt action rifle". In my opinion, EVERY SINGLE bolt action rifle available today owes its existence to the Mauser brothers. Again, a NOVEL concept in the context of the history and time that the Mausers were working.
