browning 1911 380
In 1977 Browning introduced four models of their Browning BDA (Browning Double Action) handgun. These guns came in two frame sizes from two different makers. The large frame handgun was made in three caliber; 9x 19mm Parabellum (9mm NATO), .38 Super, and .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol). The guns were sold from 1977 until 1980. These guns were made in Germany by Sig-Sauer.A smaller BDA was offered in .380 ACP caliber as the Browning BDA 380 which was manufactured by Beretta in Italy. The BDA 380 is similar to Beretta's M84.
