I keep hearing that John Moses Browning designed the BHP as well as the 1911. From looking at both pistols I cannot believe that he did both. I cannot believe that he designed the BHP after the 1911 because in a number of areas the BHP seems like a step backward. Specifically the trigger linkages and the thumb safety do not reflect forward evolution from the 1911, or even the Browning style.
Can I get an AMEN on this or am I missing something?
I have heard that he designed the BHP but because of failing health it was finished by a Belgian assistant.
Better days to be,
