Nearly all of John Browning's designs have been manufactured by other companies, including Winchester Repeating Arms Company, Colt Manufacturing Company, Remington Arms, Fabrique Nationale de Herstal, and Miroku. Browning is currently a fully-owned subsidiary of Fabrique Nationale de Herstal. Browning Arms Company is best known for the Browning BPS shotgun, the A-Bolt rifle, the Auto-5 semi-automatic shotgun, the Browning Automatic Rifle, and the Hi-Power 9mm pistol.
