    In a way, so do I.

    Nah! He would just correct you, and look sternly at you with his green eyes.

    The only 'link' is the absence of 'the link'. The ramp/cam lock-up was JMB's last idea that made it to the final pistol design. It was a way around the 'swinging link' under the barrel of the 1911 , a patent owned by Colt.

    And if ya notice , no other pistol since the 1911 used the swinging link , even after the patent expired.

    Indeed. I will credit him with the idea, the early drawings, and the first couple of tool room prototypes, but those were well before the arrival of what would become the M-35. Surely the design was incomplete when JMB simply ran out of time the hard way, and left the project in need of a new genius . We will not lose sight of the fact that the final product would not have been built if not for the dedicated effort of Belgian engineer and designer Dieudonne Saive. The fame & reputation of JMB and the pistol were secured by Saive bringing the design the rest of the way.
    Not that Browning needed a helluva lot more accomplisment ascribed to him; his previous work found its' way into many, many modern designs in addition to those pure designs he provided to the great firearms manufacturing firms. I am glad he got his name on the pistol, the 1895 MG, the 1917, the 1919, the 1918 BAR, the 1921 and the M2. Colt, Winchester, FN and others got their names on a lot of the rest of his designs.

    Just out of my mind.

    The Spanish didn't care about American patents. They did variants of the 1911 design that had the link almost after the 1911 came out, Star even did a .32 ACP version(that didn't really needed a locked breech).

    By the way everything made today that has the link is called a 1911, even if they have things the 1911 never did. I call them 1911ish.

    Same thing I call my Llama Max II in 9mm. Even though it does't have a full lenght recoil spring guide as most modern "1911s"

    Llama Max II:
