 Browning Hi-Power
The Browning Hi-Power (nicknamed the King of Nines) is a semi-automatic 9 mm pistol designed in part by American John Browning during the last years of his life in Belgium, working for the Fabrique Nationale de Herstal Arms Company.
The pistols the Allies used were produced in Canada by John Inglis and Co. The pistols used by the Germans were produced by FN in Belgium under German occupation.
The Browning L9A1 military model of the P-35 Hi-Power is still utilized by several branches of the UK military forces.

 Browning Hi-Power Biography on DanceAge (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.unc.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
The Browning Hi-Power is a semi-automatic 9 mm pistol based on ideas conceived and patented in the United States in 1922 by American firearms inventor John Browning, and later, by Fabrique Nationale D'Armes De Guerre of Herstal, Belgium.
Browning died in 1926, before he had finished developing a production version, but the design was fully developed and realized through the efforts of Belgian arms designer Dieudonne Saive working at FN.
Their requirements were that the arm have a 15-round capacity and a magazine disconnect device, be chambered for the same 9mm Parabellum cartridge that Germany used, that it have an 8-inch barrel, and that it accomplish all of this without weighing more than 2.2 pounds.

 Hi Power confusion - TheFiringLine Forums
When Browning stopped importing hi-powers for a short period, they were still imported from FN but without the browning label.
Browning was never a separate company from FN nor did it exist during JMB's lifetime.
Proving that the Browning name still sells, the most desireable guns (at least in the US) are the guns marked "Browning", second are the guns marked "Fabrique National" in large letters, and finally are the guns without a large rollmark on the slide simply marked "FN" as the manufacturer.

The Browning Hi-Power is a semi-automatic 9 mm pistol based on ideas conceived and patented in the United States in 1922 by American firearms inventor John Browning, who felt that his earlier creation, the Colt M1911, while very good, was not too good to be improved upon.
He eventually took his ideas to Belgium and the arms manufacturer Fabrique Nationale de Herstal.
Browning's initial concept was for a striker-fired pistol with a single-stack magazine; consultation with Dieudonne Saive at FN apparently convinced him to revise his design to incorporate a hammer mechanism and a higher-capacity, double-stack magazine.

Colt's first two models produced after the acquisition of the rifle from ArmaLite were the 601 and 602, and these rifles were in many ways clones of the original ArmaLite rifle (in fact, these rifles were often found stamped Colt ArmaLite AR-15).
The 601 and 602 are easily identified by their "slab-sided" lower receivers without the commonly found "fencing" around the magazine well, and in certain cases their green or brown furniture.

They were all of World War I origin, and American exposure to the weapons of their enemies and Allies had shown that there were other ways to make machine-guns; and some of them were more practical than the Browning for various applications.
One wartime innovation that attracted the Americans (and others) was the German concept of a general purpose machine-gun, a weapon that could be a squad automatic on a bipod, light enough to be carried by one man but robust enough to operate in sustained-fire weapon when fitted on a tripod.
