Their has been a few 9mm blowbacks I remember one in 80's little bigger than PPK/s and slide alone weight 16oz They just don't work very well. Now their is that $1000 little 9 made by Rxxxxxx what ever their name is. Its about PPK size and I think a little lighter.

Kahr makes pistols in that caliber, I would like to try one someday because I think they would be a little punishing on the hand.
I don't belive its a blow back. Because its very light weight and as a blow back wouldn't work proper.Need weight of slide to slow things down. Hi Point are heavy. Kahr isn't blowback and not bad to shoot. 
That is the one thing I like about my Colt Mustang It has very little recoil compaired to PPK. I can pop away with Corbon and almost no recoil.

Thats the one I was thinking about from the 80's

Detonics has risen from the grave and again makeing mini 1911's with a start price tag in $1000 range. I have a friend that carries a old Detonics 45 I been trying to get from him. As his is depenable.
