The Sola is a submachine gun that was built by Societe Luxembourgeoise SA in Luxembourg between 1954 and 1957. It uses the 9×19mm Parabellum round and is capable of using MP 40-type magazines, which were popular around Europe at the time. This weapon saw service in Africa and several are still in use today.



The SOLA Super submachine gun is a blowback-operated, open-bolt, selective-fire weapon.

The factory barrel comes with a built-in compensator.

The fire selector is located on the left-hand side of the grip, and has three settings: Safe, semi-auto, and fully automatic.

The ejection port comes with a dust cover that, when closed, locks the bolt in position.

The weapon is fed from a 32-round (standard) staggered magazine.

The rear iron sights are flip-up, while the front is fixed in the "blade" pattern; The sights are marked for 50 (handgun range) and 150 meters.

The gun comes standard with a retractable shoulder stock.

It should be noted that the gun is cheap and "short-lived", breaking after only a relatively short period of use.
