Thumbs up Weight of Colt 1903 Pocket Slide?

Does anyone have one of the 1903 .32 ACP Colts, and a postal scale handy?

Could you yell me what the slide assembly weighed?

A few of us were wondering if a Modern Gun similar in Size/Weight/Action/Profile to The 1903.....

Could conceivably have a heavy enough Slide to handle the 9mm, with a Blow-Back Action.

{According to Bill Holmes, 10 Ounces is the Hard-Rock minimum for a 9mm Bolt; but he stressed that more was decidedly better in this case.}

Anyway Thanks.

Can't answer your question, but the Pocket Hammer 38 could easily handle 9x19, and it's even smaller than the '03.
