Browning BDA 380
At the same time that Browning was offering their BDA large handguns in 9mm, .45 ACP, and 38 Super based on the SIG Sauer P220 they also offered the Browning BDA 380 which was made in Italy by Pietro Beretta S.p.A.. While very similar to the Beretta M84 the safety mechanism was different. The frame is aluminum but the slide is steel. The handgrips are wood. The BDA 380 like the larger versions features a double/single action trigger mechanism. The magazine capacity in .380 ACP is 13 rounds.
Browning Branding[edit source | edit]
This model was sold in the United States as the Browning BDA 380. On the right side of the slide is marked "Fabrique National Herstal" with the FN logo followed by "Made in Italy." In the same manner as the larger BDAs the left side of the slide is marked "Browning Arms Company Morgan Utah and Montreal, P.Q."
