The Steyr-Solothurn MP34 (maschinenpistole 34 or machine pistol 34) is a submachine gun that was developed secretly by Rheinmetall during the manufacturing restrictions imposed on Germany by the 1919 Treaty of Versailles. This was accomplished by acquiring the Swiss concern Waffenfabrik Solothurn where the prototype was developed. Once the prototype was ready, Solothurn did not have the ability to mass produce it. Rheinmetall then acquired a controlling interest in the Austrian concern Waffenfabrik Steyr, where the gun was mass produced.1

During automatic fire, the MP34 will fire 600 rounds per minute. 2

This gun is known by some as the Rolls-Royce of submachine guns due to the quality of the build.3
