    I've been doing a little research and, from various sources, I was able to find about 70 patents from John Browning. Well, I started a few years after his death and have been doing a patent by patent quest for more Browning patents. I've been searching the US Patent and Trademark Office's online database. Well, it looks like 40-60 more hours at this rate until I get to his first patent. Does ANYBODY have a comprehensive list of all 128 patents? I'm at 92 now. I need help to save me some serious time. I'm putting this all out in the open so you can see what I already have at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Browning and check my data if you'd like. I haven't double-checked it, but I think it's right so far. Please don't edit the page any, just post suggestions in the discussion section if you find something and I'll do the editing to try to stay within format.

    Links? Patent dates? Patent numbers that aren't on my list? Typos? Broken links? Guns not credited? Maybe even unpatented items? Foreign patent references? This is primary research. I'm trying to compile data that I don't know where to find. Anybody in Utah that can go to the Browning museum and dig something up?

    If anybody can help out, I'd be glad to email my excel spreadsheet with more detailed information on the patents. Thanks for the help in advance.
