It fascinating all the successful firearms this man invented. I'd love to see a complete list of all of his designs.

Didn't he invent them all?

This pretty much just a guess.


The 1911 and about 10 models predating it that looked similar.
The Browning Hi power.
The m-2 Heavy Machine gun
The 1917 and 1919 model machine guns. I'm sure there are more, but that's all I know about.

a few i found:

Winchester Model 1886 Lever Action Repeating Rifle, Model 1887 Lever Action Repeating Shotgun, Model 1897 Pump Action Shotgun, Model 1894 Lever Action Repeating Rifle, Model 1895 Lever Action Repeating Rifle, Colt Model 1895 Peacemaker machine-gun, Browning Automatic Rifle, FN's .32 caliber Model 1900. Colt's .45 ACP M1911 Government Model and FN's Browning High-Power Model P-35 in 9mm Parabellum.

that's not all of them. there was a single shot rifle he invented that got him started, another MG, and a semi-auto shotgun, along with a few others.

II think it would be easier to list the ones he didn't or weren't directly copied from ones he did.
