Is the Hi-Power better than a 1911?
The BHP is reliable, accurate, and has outstanding ergonomics. The Hi-Power retains a lot of 1911 DNA, with a hammer-fired single-action operation (actually Saive’s idea; Browning started with a striker-fired design) and a frame-mounted manual safety that only engages when the hammer is cocked.

Hi-Power: 9 mm and . 40 S&W. Beyond that, the 1911 is single-stacked, barrel-linked, with a grip safety whereas the Hi-Power is double-stacked, non-barrel-linked, with no grip safety. The Hi-Power also has a magazine disconnect.
What’s the difference between a Hi-Power and a 1911?

How big is the barrel on a 1911?
Mention a 1911. Drives them nuts! The base model, called the Government frame, features a 5-inch barrel, standing 8.5 inches long, 5.5 inches tall and usually 1.2 inches wide at the controls but about 0.9 inches at the slide, which makes it popular for IWB carry just like the BHP.
