    If you are referring to JMB probably not. When the Frenchicon asked FN for 15 (iirc) rounds of 9mm Para, JMB told them they didn't need more than 8 rounds.

    Sauve was the designer of the double stack single feed mag we have in the High Power today.

    As an aside, the ergonomics of the 1911 and High Power owe very little to JMB.- un-named US Cavalry officers and Colt designers should get the actual credit.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    When you wife got pregnant was she still not your wife? When they double stacked the Bersa Thunderer .380 was it still not a Bersa Thunderer? When they double stacked a 1911 was it still not a 1911? If the major attributes of the pistol haven't changed other than the circumference of the pistol grip I fail to see how that changes much.
