The guns were sold from until These guns were made in Germany by Sig-Sauer.
A smaller BDA was offered in. This gun was designed and manufactured in many models by Browning until The Browning BDA in 9mm.

The Browning version has the sides of the slides polished and blued. The frame is aluminum. The handgrips have Browning on the right side only. On the right side of the slide is the serial number. The Browning Bem 45 shown in the photographs has a production series number starting with The RP that follows shows that this particular handgun was manufactured in Serial Number Listing showing codes for dates and production series.
It is a full sized pistol easily capable of handing. The action is a locked breech short recoil system based on the Petter-Browning design that was produced in France in their model handgun. The Browning has a double action trigger which resets after manuall first shot to single action.
The gun has an exposed hammer that can be safely lowered with a decocker lever on the left side of the pistol next to the hold open lever. There are several safe action features including a shrouded firing pin, a positive firing pin block that can only be released when the trigger has been fully pulled, disconnector when the breech is not in full battery and the safe decocking lever.
The early P was designed for police use. As a result, it has a heel catch magazine release, which requires two hands to change the magazine. There is also a lanyard loop attached to the bottom of the handgun.
These are found on the Browning BDA as well. Refer to the photographs on this page The proof markings are on the under side of the slide which is visible only when the slide is in battery. The serial number is found on the slide, the frame and the barrel. Disassembly is effected by locking the empty pistol slide open by pulling the slide to its rearmost position if an empty magazine is loaded where it will lock automaticallyor by pushing the slide hold lever upward with the slide in its rearmost position.
There is a take down lever on the left side of the pistol that can be revolved downward. Once this is done, a loaded magazine must be removed if present and then the slide can be slid forward and off of the frame. The barrel can then be removed from the slide by removing its recoil spring which is held into place on the underside of the barrel by its spring tension. You would then have five assemblies, the side, the barrel, the recoil spring, the magazine and the frame.
This is all the disassembly necessary for cleaning. The gun is reassembled without the magazine inserted and the steps listed above performed in reverse order. This design by Browning set a pattern for many firearms that came later. It served as a US military handgun for over 70 years. John Browning produced a handgun with a staggered magazine which was one of the first high capacity handguns with his last design.
This gun is the Browning Hi-Power The Hi-Power was created for a French Government requirement for a handgun with higher capacity that many that existed at that time.

The design he produced appeared in the French pistol model and is called the Petter-Browning design. When examining the Browning prototype, the French Model and the Sig P it may be noticed that the slide mechanisms of all three appear manal similar. Like the MA1 Colt pistol the breech locking mechanism was a series of grooves in the barrel which matched similar grooves in the slide which were brownign or cammed upward to engage thus creating a locked breech action.
Only after the slide and barrel assembly had recoiled due to the energy of expelling the bullet from the barrel was it possible for the link to pivot downward, tilting the barrel and unlocking mznual action. The velocity of movement as high enough to push the slide against its recoil spring to its rear most position. From there the spring was strong enough to push the slide forward, where it would strike the base of an unfired cartridge in the magazine which had risen after the breech block had moved browbing, thus pushing the unfired cartridge into the chamber, effecting the semi-automatic reloading bdn.
In the s SIG developed a very high quality and highly efficient type of production machinery known as an Automatic Screw Machine.
Swiss laws however prevented SIG from exporting their firearms products in a profitable manner. They solved this problem by creating a partnership with the German manufacturer of firearms J.
This resulted in the company known as Sig-Sauer. Sauer and Sohn had been in competition with Carl Walther Arms and others created a handgun to be a pocket and police pistol called the Sauer 38H.

When Sig and Sauer together designed the handgun for the Swiss police in to replace the Sig P they used the best features of the Petter-Browning design and incorporated features that had been found in the 38H model. The resulting design became known as the P, which was produced under contract with some modifications for Browning as the Browning BDA. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
