star43 said:Well hopefully people who read this will get to know who he was !!! Thanks Mr. Saive !! By the way, I agree with that Jefferson quote at the bottom of your post !! God Bless him !! Not to get off track but the man in my opinion who never gets any or much credit was "Charles Petter" Look at the famous Sig guns and they would never be around without that man..........It started with the 1935 French Model 1935..... and that turned into Sig's most expensive gun that is still being made I believe at about $4000 - $5000 EACH if you want one..........but back to the Browning.........Thanks for the photos CW !! Drdougrx made a good point about that FM Detective..........I have seen one and it was top notch quality. A Hi-Power in a shortened compact design. !! I can see why he would have a hankering for one of those beauties !!
