The Browning BDM is a semi-auto pistol was developed in 1991 (This one was made in 1994) by the Browning Arms Company, and unlike Browning’s (FN Herstal) P-35 Hi-Power model, was manufactured only in North America,production ceased in 1998. Similar in appearance to Browning’s (FN Herstal) “Hi-Power” pistol, the BDM was actually a new design created to compete in service trials as a standard issue pistol for the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation. However, the BDM was not ultimately adopted for issue by the FBI, and was instead sold only in the private market.
The pistol is a magazine fed, self-loading, hammer firing type which was designed with a trigger “mode” switch installed on the left-hand side of the slide (actually only a flush inlaid disk with a bisecting groove), toggling between double-action/single-action(DA/SA) pistol mode, and the double-action-only (DAO) or “revolver” mode—though, of course, other than the similarity of the trigger mode, the BDM has no resemblance to revolvers. This mode switch is what gives the handgun its name, with BDM standing for “Browning Dual Mode” or “Browning Double Mode”.
Variants of the design lacked the mode operating switch, and so were either full-time revolver mode, model BRM (Browning Revolver Mode), or full-time double-action/single-action pistol mode, model BPM-D (Browning Pistol Mode Decocker).
This comes with 2 magazines one 10rd and one 15rd. After the 2004 expiration of the 1994 U.S. Assault Weapons legislation, 15-round magazines became legal and available in most states for civilian use.
