Does this type of pistol come in 9mm Nato? No necessarily the Sig 232, but some sore of PPK, CZ52ish looking pistol.

Thanks.

no because .380's are the largest round chambered in the blow back design (HK P7 excluded). That is the reason for the design with the recoil spring over the barrel resulting in that overall profile.

Yes, it comes in 9mm Kurz

Closest thing you could get to that size in 9mm might be a Walther P5. I believe they're not that much larger than a PPK.

That is the gun I was thinking of! Thank You. I simply love this style of pistol, but .380 seem to be to expensive for plinking, practice and now strong enough for CCW.

Also, is the P5 any good? They seem to be rare and out of production. (only a few on GB).

OK, OK I got it. You can drop it now.

Frankly, look at a Kel-Tec. They look similar, come in 9mm nato, and are cheap. A Kahr is a better pistol, but costs twice as much. If you need the performance, they are nice. If it won't matter (short ranges, for example), use the money for ammo.

Naw, Walther P5 is what I was thinking about.
