Bryant Ridge's Analysis:
The production of the pistol design started in 1976. The new model was to replace the FN 1922/Browning 125 in the company's line-up. The pistol is a derivative of Beretta Model 81 and/or 84, distinguished by closed cylinder head and different safety system.

It was available in .32 ACP and .380 ACP, with .32 ACP variant manufactured by FN Herstal for European markets and Beretta manufactured the .380 ACP variants at own factories by themselves on behalf of the FN Herstal.

However, Beretta did not sell this pistols under its own brand. Instead, the .380 variants by Beretta were sold as Browning BDA 380 by Browning Arms Company for the North American markets. The Beretta/Browning models are distinguished by its markings, with right side of the slide being marked "Fabrique National Herstal" with the FN logo followed by "Made in Italy", and the left side of the slide has markings "Browning Arms Co. Morgan Utah & Montreal, P.Q."

It failed commercially, despite some purchases by the Belgian Judicial Police for female officers. The production of the FN 140DA pistol was discontinued in 1987, while Beretta/Browning version was withdrawn in circa 1997.
