The barrel of the Browning Hi-Power (about 4.75") is just a tad longer than the Bersa. The Hi-Power is also more thin overall than the Bersa. Because the Bersa has ambi-dextrous slide release and decocker, its profile is a little wider. I have both and I like both. I have several "plastic" pistols, but I still prefer the "all metal" guns, like the Hi-Power and the Bersa.
