Gaston Glock is a toolmaker who made a fantastic, and utterly reliable tool which shoots bullets. I would say Gaston's most important contribution has been in materials which pistols (now) are made out of, and precision manufacturing.
That about covers it, but.....

Forget about the 1911. Look at the other Browning designs to see why Browning was a master.
