Advent of the Automatic Firearm

Topic Progress:

Following the revolver, the first automatic firearm was created in 1892 and the man behind this was Joseph Laumann. The following year, in 1893, the Borchardt pistol was developed and it was the first automatic pistol that had a separate magazine in its grip. Soon after that, a variety of automatic weapons followed in rapid succession; among them were the Mauser, Luger, Browning, and Colt designs.
