Regarded as the most successful firearms designer of the 20th century, John Moses Browning has developed mechanisms used in both civilian and military firearms. Many are still in use today, including the iconic 1911 pistol, serving as the US Military standard issue sidearm from 1911-1986.

Every Joe Wall piece in the 1911 line of products is serialized with the prefix “JMB” in honor of his ingenuity.
