It's closely related. But how?


Check the current issue of American Rifleman. There is a concise but complete treatment of exactly what went on before Colt got off their asses and started production of the iconic Browning designed automatic pistols. FN was a little quicker and a lot smarter along about the turn of the 20th century. That is why we have Browning pistols, thank the Lord.
This is a model 1900 I got for the princely sum of ~$100 or so plus shipping/transfer.

It was long ago enough so most folks viewed such things as landfill. It is beat up, but it still works just the way JMB intended it to.

Yea...+1 on what oberon sez...The NRA American Rifleman article "1899 The Year of the Browning" ( page 40-44 then continued on page 78 ) is a tribute to Browning's FN connection in that year.
