Firearms History - Trivia

Carbine Williams


"His floating chamber was used in one of the most popular American .22 semi-automatic rifles, the Remington 550-A. Later, in 1954, the Winchester Model 50 Automatic shotgun was launched.

This, too, featured the Williams Chamber, making it the first semi-automatic shotgun with a non-recoiling barrel.

Take a look at the U.S. patents for the highly successful Benelli Shotgun (U.S No. 4,604,942) and you will see Williams' Patent No. 2,476,323 cited."

These days he'd probably get ten years added on to his sentence for designing gun parts, especially something to make one cycle more rounds in x amount of time.



You know Tuck that would just about also hold true for John Browning. He also had a past and I don't think the law today would look very favorable on him either.
