Armscor 9mm?

Are 9mm revolvers inherently more expensive, or could Armscor manufacture one without passing the $200 mark their revolvers normally stay under?
Would be a great gun IMO.

9mm takes the same diameter bullet as .38 Special. Armscor could easily chamber their M200/M206 revolvers for 9mm just by how they ream the cylinders.

The extractor for rimless cartridges adds cost.

That's what moonclips are for.

Operating pressure has to be taken into consideration, .38spl runs around 18000psi, 9mm about 35000. I'm not sure their revolvers could handle it.

I wouldn't mind moon clips. In their snub, I wouldn't mind 5 shots if it was under $200. I think they are larger than a J-frame or LCR, but still pretty petite revolvers. Would make a great nightstand gun.
