However the manufacturing was undertaken in 1930 by the Swiss firm of Solothurn who where owned by Rheinische Metallwaren und Maschinenfabrik of Dusseldorf. The MP34 was also produced by the Austrian firm Osterreichische Waffenfabirk-Gesellschat at Steyr. Hence the MP34 commonly referred to as the Steyr-Solothurn. It was manufactured with the very best materials available and finished to the highest standard. It was so well manufactured it has often been called the "Rolls Royce" of submachine guns. However the production costs were extremely high as a consequence. The MP34 was used by the Austrian Army and Gendarmerie.
