Your personal top 5 firearms designers
 
This is inspired by a comment made in another thread. It made me curious.
Who are your top 5 firearms designers of all time?

This was very hard for me. There are a lot of designers that deserve a place I this count, but these are the ones that won out for me.
Mine:
1: Daniel B. Smith

2: John M. Browning

3: Oliver F. Winchester

4: Samuel Colt

5: Eugene Stoner

Mine are the same as yours, with Browning as my favorite.

In no particular order,,,,, Browning, Colt, Winchester, the Hawken brothers,,
Kalishnokoff,, because his rifles are everywhere, for good reason,, if I spelled it correctly.

Mercator 03-17-2014 12:23 AM

Colt, Browning, the Mauser brothers, Maxim.

zaitsev44 03-17-2014 12:29 AM

Not in any order.... Samuel Colt, John Moses Browning, John C Garand, Mikhail Kalishnakov (with help from Hugo Schmeisser), and Wilhelm and Paul Mauser. Also a special mention for the Maxim brothers, Sergei Mosin, Leon Nagant, Eugene Stoner, and Winchester (his first name escapes me at the moment).
