Sorry, forgot this one.

John Browning's first semi automatic firearm was an 1873 Winchester rifle.

Browning put on a sliding butt plate with a bar that was attached to the lever.
When fired, the recoil would cause the butt plate to act like a recoil pad and the bar would operate the lever action.
