I thought sometime ago Browning put out a double action high power?

Any around? Why not still in production?

Are you referring to the BDM or its variants, or another model?

Run a search for "Browning BDM" and find the Wikipedia article for it. It talks about a traditional SA/DA variant of the BDM (the BPM-D, or "Browning Pistol Mode Decocker"), but I don't think I've ever seen one in-person. The basic BDM was fairly common in my part of the country (north-central), I used to see new and used BDMs fairly regularly in the late 90s and into the Naughts.

If we are talking BDM, it had a flathead tip on the mag floor plate so you could rotate a "selector" to go double action only or traditional da/sa.

The grip was a little thin for my tastes and the trigger wasn't exceptional. For me a S&W 3rd gen DAO was better.

I think the BDM held 15rds. Not sure why they discontinued them (lack of sales?).
