ACP230 and the others have most of those that I can think of besides the Winchester 1897 shotgun, the Remington Model 8 semi-auto rifle and the Winchester 1895 rifle (ala Teddy Roosevelt).
Sure seems like there were more, but it's far from an insignificant list already.

Also the Remington slide-action shotgun that later was sold to Ithaca as the Model 37.

Remington Model 11, Savage Model 520 (?)
Atticus, about that pictorial - I'd wager JMB was long gone before the A-Bolt and BAR sporter were introduced. He didn't live long enough to finish the High Power, Mr. D. Saive carried it through to fruition.

All those patents that Winchester bought and sat on. I'll bet there are more than a few elegant, efficeint designs lurking amongst those guns. Where'd they go?
I wish someone would review those. I wonder if there might be some truly unique and surprising solutions to the challenges of firearms engineering even in the light of today's advanced industrial technology. J.M. Browning had a tremendous understanding of guns, and a very prolific mind.
A locking system that no-one's thought up yet? A magazine system as yet untried? Some sort of take-down system that hasn't managed to occur to anyone else?
The mind boggles. I'd love to look, or better yet, play with some prototypes. What surprises may lurk in that patent list?
