hmm, last i heard, it was greg palmer who created the first blowback, but it was never mass produced. i wish i could remember the name, i know it was named after his daughter/wife or something.

Actually it was Tom Kaye, guy that invented the automag and owner of AGD. He originally designed a blowback but after a few prototypes there was still to many problems. So he then invented the blowforward which is what is found in automags.

Greg Palmer invented the auto-cocker.
