    g25.jpg Isnt the G25 and G28 a "blowback" type action ? I never hear too many people talking about the 25 and 28 much. Today I was watching some video's on them and I took a screen shot of the breech and how it dips down towards the front. You can see it on the picture I posted here. The breech dips down where most breeches go flush with the slide.

    Yes 25&28 are blowback operated. You do not see them discussed much because they were never imported in to the US except for law enforcement use. And it would be pretty pointless to have guns exactly the same size as the 19 and 26 in a less available at times and more expensive caliber with less power. Also considering it is a blow back that means stuff recoil spring and recoil is likely similar to a locked breech 9, not much point. They were developed for export to countries that do not allow civilians to have military caliber handguns.
