Jump on this bandwagon. Can anyone, with reason, EXPLAIN Browning's insanity when he designed his Hi-Power? An external extractor? Had he been given a S&W kool-aid? Had he realized that his earlier 1911 was wrong or inadequate? Was potical incorrectness begining even in his time? Was it old age? No grip safety - WHY? Or did this genius develop an even more advanced pistol design (that S&W follows)? Yes, he had to work around his own patients on his 1911, but that does that mean he was misguided, or worse, bought out? Perhaps, I hope, Master Cane, can enlighten us as to this hipocisy (sic). Given your underline of how "great" your Hi-Power" is by gorknoids, have you become a Dr Jeckel and Mr Hide? I'm kidding..................I think.
