Today

Is John Moses Browning’s birthday.

Nearly every semi-automatic pistol sold today owes him for the operating mechanism it uses.

One wonders what he could do today in design with modern materials and metal manufacturing techniques….back then his designs were limited to “Start with a hunk of good quality steel (which wasn’t that great by today’s standards) and carve away everything that doesn’t look like a gun part”.

With today’s steels, metals, manufacturing techniques, and modern polymers? What might he create?
