The company that produces the Stribog SP9A1Pistol is Grand Power Manufacturing, based in Slovakia.  The company founder, Jaroslav Kuracina, had a dream of designing & building firearms.  After suffering many setbacks, his dream was realized and the SP9A1, along with many other models, was born.

After years of working with Grand Power on large contracts, including the hugely successful U.S. Army Sub-Compact Weapons Program, Global Ordnance, LLC became the new U.S. distributor for the Grand Power brand.  Global Ordnance, based in Sarasota, Fl, is the company that sources and provides ammunition, weapons, and energetic materials to the U.S. D.O.D.


The newly redesigned, semi-automatic, Stribog SP9A1 9mm pistol features an anodized aircraft aluminum frame, 8-inch threaded barrel, and a Non-Reciprocating Charging Handle.  It’s one of the most highly rated guns on the market due to its rugged design and reliability.


The SP9A1 has a removable rear cover that allows you to install your favorite arm brace.  All controls are ambidextrous for you left-handed shooters out there.  It’s equipped with a dual mass slide, which significantly reduces recoil.  There’s a full-length picatinny rail on top of the receiver as well as a shorter rail on the forearm.  The polymer handgrip is compatible with all AR type grips, letting you use your favorite grip.


The Stribog comes threaded with a stainless-steel, 1/2×28 TPI barrel, making it simple to mount the suppressor of your choice.
