hard to beat MarcW's Pardini... a 1911's grip safety and frame can be undercut to the thumb safety pivot hole... my 1911 was getting close to the edge when it was built way back when... you can see the thumb wear marks on the slide...

Possibly the Steyr.

ETA: M9/M40 and variants.

True. That's the best thing about the Glock. In addition to the low bore axis, the grip angle forces you to pivot your wrist downward, effectively lowering the bore axis even more in relation to your forearm. The lowered wrist is less apt to act as a pivot as the gun recoils. This enables really quick follow-up shots.

The Steyr and Caracal guns are set up very similarly.

The FNS is slightly lower than a Glock.

That's kind of where I am going with this. But is there any centerfire pistols with a similar layout?

Czs have a low bore axis because of the slide to frame design. The slide rides internally of the frame.

1911s don't have a low bore axis no matter what you do with them because the slide itself is pretty tall and sits relatively high above the pivot hole.


green = 1911, red = Glock, blue = P7


Some center fire pistols which do have a (more or less) low bore axis: CZ 75 (highest on the list), Pardini GT9, HK P7, Glock, Steyr M, S&W M&P, Caracal, Strike One

This, if you are looking for a centerfire semiauto then the steyr M9a1 and m40a1 series appear to have the lowest bore axis. It is similar to the arsenal strike one in that regard

As cool as the Mateba is, it ain't a pistol.

Hi Powers have pretty low bore axes, as low as CZ's.
