This Steyr Mannlicher SPP 9MM (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. Steyr's submachine guns have also earned a well deserved reputation for innovative design and reliability. Brand new in the box unfired with both Original new magazines (15 & 30 rounds), Original box with all paper work including Warranty Card and factory scope rail, rare. I also have included a new appropriate black nylon sling. This is a 1990 era import is a highly collectable and rare in this NIB condition and is 1 of only about 1000 total imported 25 years ago. This is my most collectable gun and I want someone to enjoy it as I have.
The 9mm Steyr SPP is a semi-auto-only civilian version of the Steyr TMP (Tactical Machine Pistol), profiled in the 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 is slightly longer than its burst-firing cousin, measuring 12 3/5" overall and tipping the scales at approximately 3.1 lbs. with a fully loaded 15-round magazine in place. As such, this handgun is what I would consider suitable for concealed carry, perhaps under a trench coat or other similarly loose-fitting top garment.
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. (Secret Service Style Pistol)
he cocking handle of the SPP is quite similar in design to that of the AR-15 and is located at the rear of the upper receiver, under the rear sight. The latter has a fairly wide square notch and is adjustable for windage only, via a screw. My test pistol - one of only a couple brought into the U.S. initially - had a round post for a front sight, adjustable for elevation by turning it with a screwdriver. The top of the upper receiver has a molded rail that allows the mounting of a variety of optronic sights. The pistol's open sights, however, were found to be quite adequate for most of the uses that this gun is bound to encounter.
The trigger mechanism gets overall high marks for safety and simplicity. Its mostly straight-back travel was somewhat long and spongy, but the let-off pressure was quite consistent, breaking at approximately 9 1/2 lbs. This trigger incorporates an automatic safety that prevents the hammer from falling unless the trigger is actually pulled and thus acts as a drop safety. There is also a manually activated crossbolt trigger safety.
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.
