I just read an Internet article about the 9x23 that was written in 2003. I have become intrigued by the possibility of a high capacity semi-automatic with 357 magnum ballistics. How is the 9x23 cartridge faring ? Is it gaining in popularity or floundering ? I can find no production guns in that caliber. Everything seems to be custom. (A cost problem for a husband and father supporting a wife and three children.) Could an EAA full size 38 Super Witness be modified to safely fire this round ?
