(Sorry for the long description, it's worth reading) Steyr Mannlicher SPP was manufactured in Steyr Austria and had limited importation to the USA in 1992 and 93. SPP, which stands for Special Purpose Pistol. And special it certainly is, given its manufacturer, the world-renown Austrian firm Steyr Mannlicher. The latter has a long and enviable reputation for its many successful military and sporting rifles. The Steyr AUG, for instance, is one of the most advanced assault rifles in current use around the world. Steyr's submachine guns have also earned a well deserved reputation for innovative design and reliability.This is a recoil operated pistol with a rotating barrel locking system. The pistol has a synthetic receiver and the barrel is 5.1 inches long. The pistol weighs 2.6 pounds empty and has a standard 15 round magazine. Also included is one 30 round factory magazines. This pistol has just been taken out of my collection. I have never fired this pistol and it shows no evidence of being handled or fired. This hand gun is very hard to find! No sales to California!.

The 9mm Steyr SPP is a semi-auto-only civilian version of the Steyr TMP (Tactical Machine Pistol), profiled in an article by Belgian gun writer Jacques Lenearts. Extremely compact at under 12 inches overall, the TMP has selective fire capability that in full-auto carries a cyclic rate of 900 rpm. Available only to military, police and other official entities, the TMP is finding favor among professionals in the field of VIP protection, given its compact size, high firepower and overall fine quality.

The SPP has a sling mount located at the rear of the lower receiver. A handy adjustable web strap to fit that mount is available as an extra which allows the gun to be comfortably carried slung from the shoulder, bodyguard fashion, and still be instantly ready for action. It can also assist in steadying the pistol when firing over longer than normal distances.

Steyr engineers, as has been their practice for some time now, chose to rely heavily on modern, state-of-the-art molded synthetics for the construction of the SPP. To that effect, the entire outer envelope of the pistol is made of a synthetic material called DCEF 1313. The manufacturer reports that this substance is practically indestructible, having an expansion modulus similar to that of steel.

The bolt continues its rearward travel alone, completing the cycle of extracting and ejecting the fired casing, recocking the internal hammer and disengaging the sear. At this point the bolt is stopped and then begins to move forward under pressure from the recoil spring, chambering a round from the magazine. As it slams shut, the bolt forces the barrel to rotate into the locked position, ready for the next shot.

There is a clever method to hold the bolt open when the magazine runs dry. The rear of the ejector, which is part of the slide release lever located on the left side of the gun, is raised in order to catch the bolt and hold it open.

Tests disclosed that the SPP can handle just about any factory 9mm ammo with alacrity. In firing several hundred rounds of various brands and types of ammunition, the SPP did not have one single stoppage. Impressive, to say the least. Equally impressive was the accuracy obtained with this pistol. Using a two-handed hold, at 25 yards, most 15-shot groups fired at a rapid cadence clustered well within the center of mass of a standard silhouette combat target. Using the optional sling as additional support, the groups shrank even further.
