Arguably the most prolific inventor the world has ever known when it comes to firearms is John Moses Browning. Born on January 23, 1855 in Ogden, Utah Browning was destined from birth to make his mark on the direction of firearms development around the globe. Learning his craft from his gunsmith father, young Browning made his first gun at the age of 14 and received his first of 128 patents when he was just 24 years old. Volumes have been written about Browning’s amazing achievements but here we focus on just one, the 1911 semi-automatic pistol.
Try to imagine a product in any category that was created so perfect and ahead of its time that over one hundred years later it would not only still be in use but would also be the most desired product in its category. The Browning designed 1911 .45 ACP pistol is still the primary side arm for military and police in more than 50 Countries. The most copied, customized and carried handgun in the history of firearms. Almost every gun enthusiast either owns one or wants to own one. Put a custom 1911 in your hand and it becomes immediately clear what all the fuss is about.
