They prototyped a gun of the 1911 design, called the Grand Browning, in 9.65mm caliber about the same time that Colt was working on the 9.8 mm in a scaled-down 1911 platform. Cartridges of the World says they are the same round under European and American nomenclature. The only picture I have ever seen shows clearly different bullet profile and apparently different case lenght, but no dimensions were given. But then came WW I and nobody wanted a new gun to debug and deploy.
