I know that the Browning BDA is manufactured in Italy by Beretta.I also know that it is a very close copy of the Beretta 82/84 pistol(except for the enclosed barrel).
I have seen .380 versions of the BDA but none in .32. Were any imported, or are being imported now?
Thanx,
Anand.

I've not seen either advertised in the .32 ACP chambering. Another difference is in the operation of the safety. (The Beretta's moves downward to allow the gun to fire - the main reason that I prefer the 84 over the BDA.)
