Original box and paperwork, and two magazines included.
This is a high quality sub-compact pistol. This pistol is highly accurate. It is Double Action Only.This pistol was not designed for competitive target shooting—DAO designs such as this have been shown to be easier to operate under stressful situations and therefore preferable to traditional Double Action designs when self-defense is concerned. Tolerances on this pistol are very tight and quality very high, as with all SPHINX pistols. Slightly smaller in general overall dimension than the Walther PPK/S, it also has a larger magazine capacity (10/11/15). The sights are adjustable. Safeties include: 1. an automatic firing-pin block type which precludes the striker from being hit unless the trigger is pulled, eliminating slam-fires etc. 2. Manual firing-pin block safeties on "M" models (similar in function to the Beretta 92F). This pistol is reported to prefer "hotter" ammunition in order to cycle properly until broken in. This is due to its European origin, where hotter ammunition (in comparison to the U.S.) is commonly produced & used. Due to tighter firearms trade restrictions, the AT .380 is no longer imported into the United States.
Sphinx Systems Limited is a small Swiss-based manufacturer of high quality pistols used mainly by special forces, elite police units and sports shooters. The company has been in business since 1876.
Sphinx manufactures all pistols in Switzerland, slides are made from solid billet steel, frames from casts, forgings or also from billet, and fits each pistol with high quality barrels. Each pistol part is machined to very close tolerances and assembled by Sphinx master gunsmiths.
Sphinx pistols are not mass produced and are fitted to tight tolerances, so Sphinx pistols are more expensive than mass produced products.
