John Moses Browning3350 viewsOne of the men most responsible for the modern development of the shotgun was prolific gun designer John Browning. While working for Winchester Firearms, Browning revolutionized shotgun design. In 1887, Browning introduced the Model 1887 Lever Action Repeating Shotgun, which loaded a fresh cartridge from its internal magazine by the operation of the action lever. Before this time, most shotguns were the 'break open' type.
1880 -With the aid of his brothers, John Browning established his arms factory.
1886- Patent No. 336,287 was granted on a lever action repeating shotgun. Known as the Winchester Model 1887, it was the first successful repeating shotgun.
1890- Patent application was filed on a pump action repeating shotgun. Marketed as the Winchester Model 1898. A later take-down version was known as the Winchester Model 1897.
1900- The first of four patents were filed on the revolutionary autoloading shotgun. It would be manufactured by Fabrique Nationale in 1903 and by Remington Arms Company in 1905.
1902- A contract was signed granting FN exclusive world rights to manufacture and sell the autoloading shotgun.
1904- In the face of restrictive tariffs, FN agreed to cede to Remington the rights to manufacture and sell the autoloading shotgun in the United States.

1913- Filed patent on a pump shotgun that would be marketed as the Remington Model 17. It was John M. Browning's last repeater-type shotgun.

1923- The first of two patents were filed on the Superposed Over/Under shotgun.
1926- November 26th, John Moses Browning died of heart failure at Liege, Belgium. The great gunmaker had laid down his tools.
