Indeed...as so few things truly are. Browning borrowed ideas from other people, the same as others have drawn on his.

What is the Model 92/94 carbine except Christian Sharps' falling block action with a sliding breechbolt added?

Glock's striker-fired pistol? Go back. Way back to the Grande Rendement...and even further to the Luger...and then back to the Borchardt.

Nothing new under the sun, it seems.
