Browning Arms Company was founded in Utah in 1927. It offers a wide variety of firearms, including shotguns, rifles, pistols, and rimfire firearms. They also offer sport bows.

The company was founded to market the sporting (non-military) designs of John Browning, one of the more prolific firearms inventors. Nearly all of John Browning's designs have been manufactured by other companies, including Winchester, Colt, Remington, Fabrique Nationale de Herstal of Belgium, 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 BAR semi-automatic sporting rifle, and the Hi-Power 9mm pistol. Browning also manufactures a set of trap shotguns in the Cynergy series.

Browning also sells a wide variety of non-firearms outdoors products, such as gun safes, knives, shooting accessories and clothing. [ [http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/index.asp Browning Product lines] ]

Browning Footwear

Browning introduced a line of hunting boots in 1968 and continued to design and manufacture footwear through outside vendors until 2001. In that year, a license agreement was reached with Connecticut based H.H. Brown Shoe Company, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, to manufacture Browning Footwear.

The product line included the John M. Browning collection, Field and Game series, and sporting and waterfowl lines. The line has grown to include Kangaroo leather boots, Rubber boots and waders, and upland game boots. [http://www.browningfootwear.com]
