    I'd be all over one in .380 Auto.

    9mm pressures preclude the design of a pop up barrel. Those guns were blowback. A 9mm blowback would require a massive slide. Beretta discontinued the Model 86 due to manufacturing costs. It may cost less now with CNC machining and the use of polymers, but I doubt anyone would make the investment for such a niche market.

    If you want to see a photo of a 9mm blowback, search for images of the L.E.S P-18, manufactured in Morton Grove, Ill in the 80's. Yes, that's the town famous for banning guns inside it's city limits. They had a pistol factory.

    That's a really good point. It's not just the 9mm blowback that would be massive, so would the 380. The reason HiPoints look so fugly is that their slides are huge and heavy due to being blowback designs.
    PT22, 85 Poly, 865, 605, M44.... what's next?!

    HMMM??
    just thinking now and asking my fellow Forum mates--so do you think a PT-22 chambered in either a 380 or a 9 MM would have a magazine capacity of 2 or 3 rounds??--LOL
    forget about the weight, increased grip size, larger more robust slide and locking assembly.
    may be a nice 380/9 MM Derringer would be a better idea??
    and likely the same capacity as well.

    The Poly PT22 is still being made, not sure about the PT25. The older version of the PT22 and PT25 with the alloy frame I'm pretty sure they are not making those, I have one of those in .22LR for a few years, it's been a great gun.
