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.Originally posted by clark.45:
I think the refrence is to JMB's design of the 1911

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.
