The low bore axis of the .380 produces as much recoil as the 9mm in many guns
I thought that a low bore axis was usually desirable, since it produces less muzzle flip than a higher axis, all else being equal?

Could it be that the increased felt recoil in a .380 comes from the blowback mechanism most of them use, rather than the relative position of the bore to the grip?
