Just arrived, my MP or MP 34, very hard to get in Canada

Article about: Mp34 is also known as the Steyr-Solothurn S1-100. It's a lovely gun - beautifully machine and reliable. The rat tail style bolt system is terribly civilized. This one was in 9mm Mauser, but

    Mp34 is also known as the Steyr-Solothurn S1-100.
    It's a lovely gun - beautifully machine and reliable.
    The rat tail style bolt system is terribly civilized.

    This one was in 9mm Mauser, but it was converted to 9mm para for blank fire and availability of mags.



    This is another style of bayonet, too (refurbished Bulgarian):




    I thought deactivated in Canada meant welded up internally (the ones I looked at were pretty much lumps of metal) - yours has the bolt out - tell us about that dewat process, that is interesting - dewat here is a term for a firearm that was stopped from working, but not destroyed, thereby still needs to be registered with NFA.

    Very interesting weapon!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The crest on the top cover is a Steyr-Solothurn crest. I have one with the Portuguese crest and is exactly the same crest you see on the Portuguese contact 98k's sold to Portugal some of which were held back by the German's.

    Thanks Guys. it is a very nice looking piece.

    The old way of dewating a weapon is very different than todays way in Canada, now they have to be an anchor, nothing moving ect.
    However a few years ago it was much easier to dewat a weapon...this one was done awhile ago, so if I was to sell it, then I would have to update the dewat.
