That is true. It was JMB's design, but he never finished it. A Belgian did pick up the plans and interpret what the Master had in mind, which is why it will never be King of all Pistols.
But Hi-Power versus Makarov?? That is an easy equation from a gunmakers point of view.
Your hands, however, will tell you what you like best.
