Arne Boberg is an award-winning design engineering specialist at 3M and also the founder of Boberg Arms, where he invented a new semi-auto handgun, the Boberg XR9-S! With 23 years in manufacturing and machine design, and 10 years in product design, he has a unique perspective on what it takes to make products, break molds and recover from epic failure. He sold his company to Bond Arms in 2016.
