Since when is a Belgian designed, Canadian manufactured pistol "American" ?

Like Colt.
We can't make anything new so we'll just recycle old stuff .

Well, Browning was an American - albeit working for a Belgian manufacturer when he finished this pistol's design - and S&W is American, so . . . .

S&W have nothing to do with it.
And Browning never did finish the design.
It's a Belgian gun never used in the US except by a few followers of the 9mm.
Maxim and Hotchkiss are not "American" guns either.

Or you could call the Luger an American gun.
Borchardt was Works Manager at Sharps where he learned about Lee's detatchable box magazine.

The fact is that another dying gun company can't produce anything of their own so they are trying to capture some one else's crumbs.
Instead of wasting money on a fake "Browning", you could just buy a genuine Cz 75.

Does Springfield actually make anything anymore, or are they just selling Croatian imports ?

While you're drooling over this check out the "new" Cz Anaconda, and Python.   https://www.guns.com/news/2021/03/22/colt-reintroduces-the-44-magnum-anaconda-revolver

Where do you get that it is made in Canada?  All I can find is that it is made in the US, with magazines from a vendor in Italy.

Real Browning's were made under license by Inglis.

I'm confused now.  Are we talking about the Brownings, or are we talking about the new Springfield clone?
