John Browning Patent 730870 – Recoil Operated Shotgun

| History, John Browning | February 13, 2012

This John Browning design was for a recoil operated shotgun, but different than his popular Browning Auto-5 design.  This shotgun used a very interesting top ejection of spent shells.

John Browning was granted US Patent 730870 on June 16th, 1903.  He applied for this patent many years earlier, on May 6th, 1899.
