Actually, John Browning was 31 when Winchester brought out the 1886 rifle. J.M. Browning was born in 1855 as I recall. He and one of his brothers/half brothers patented what later became the Winchester 1885 single shot prior to 1880. His father was a blacksmith who had made several repeating rifles using a block of wood as a sort of magazine.
