Yeah, but, that's the joke, JMB didn't design the 1911, the military specified changes. He may have designed the single swinging link, but the grip safety, hammer & other things that make the 1911 what we recognize, aren't his idea.
Same with the hi-power, the important, revolutionary part (the browning lock up system) was his, and is in quite a few guns. But, he didn't make it as a double stack with a hammer.
I believe he was quoted as saying hammer's were useless, but I have no quote reference...

Sad to say, if JMB were alive today, he'd probably have designed the Glock :)

So, SA doesn't build the gun like JMB wanted it, anymore than Colt does.

Yeah, we've got a few SA Ultra-Compact hi-caps left on closeout. We got a lot of almost everything else :)
I had a SA for a while, but they just don't sell well for us, same as Para-ordnance.
