Early 9mm P220
Howdy from Mississippi!
Just bought this one yesterday.
The beauty of this one really caught my eye.
Looks nearly new except for the "Smiley" & some internal finish loss due to firing.
It is a Browning import from 1977 as the "HH" proof mark indicates.
While my 2001 P220 45auto is nowhere near as nice, my 45 has no play between the slide & frame.
This early 9mm P220 has some noticeable play between the frame & slide.
The magazine heel catch insures that the magazine will never unintentionally separate from the weapon.
All of my German issue police & military pistols have heel catches for the magazine & are single stack; from 7.65 to 9mm.
I am looking forward to shooting this one to see how well she prints on paper.
Gonna order a spare mag or two next week.

Technically what you have is a Browning BDA in 9mm, which is a Browning in name only. I have a BDA in .45 ACP.
These are P220s that were 100% made by Sig for Browning to import into the US under their brand between 1977 and 1979. After that Sig exported them to the US on their own as the P220.
Interesting that you have a BDA and a P220 box.
