Default 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

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

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).
