    because it was huge and not as effective as regular style automatics. I wonder what the recoil was like on those

    My uncle has one. Recoil is kinda snappy with more muzzle flip than my glocks.
    oh yeah, it's a piece of shit too.

    it was expensive to make with too much fine machining to be mass made

    Simple: It's unnecessarily complex, finicky, and sensitive to dirt/fouling (to which it is also insanely exposed).
    Short recoil, delayed-blowback, etc, are simpler, more robust, easier to make, cheaper, and more user-friendly systems.
