1926: Firearms designer and inventor John Browning, arguably the most important figure in the development of modern automatic and semi-automatic firearms, dies of heart failure at the age of 72 in Liège, Wallonia, Belgium. Browning invented or made significant improvements to single-shot, lever-action and slide-action rifles and shotguns and his telescoping bolt design is now found on nearly every modern semi-automatic pistol, as well as several modern fully automatic weapons.
