BYW I didn't think Browning was still alive when Duidonne Sauivie (sp?) finished up the P-35 design?
No he wasn't.

Dieudonné Saive incorporated some patents that had expired after Brownings death into the Hi-Power, like the lock breach design from the 1911, etc..

Browning's original design for the Hi-Power was straight blowback I think.
