In 2003, the original inventor, John Stemple collaborated with BRP Corp to make new and replacement parts for the Stemple 76/45 receivers he manufactured prior to the 1986 cutoff. From this came a series of compatible drop-on parts for the unmodified/transferable Stemple 76/45 receivers known as Stemple Takedown Gun (STG) setups. Since nothing is welded or hand fitted to these receivers, changing setups and replacing parts is fast and easy. These are the most finely built and smooth running sub-machine guns on the transferable market. We build them for performance and durability, stock plenty of high-quality spare parts, and provide excellent service.

Simple / Durable Design:
Our guns are very difficult to break and very easy to fix. They are simple blow-back guns and very smooth-running in long full-auto bursts. Some of our customers who own the 9mm guns liken the full-auto performance to a laser beam.
There's nothing on these guns that cant be easily replaced. We designed this system to protect the registered receiver from any wear during use. The only parts that can wear can be easily replaced without the need to ship the gun back-and-forth.
If you need service, we are here to support our products.
Shoot Cheap Ammo:
We typically just shoot steel-cased ammo. Our milled steel trunions easily deal with potential wear issues from any type of ammo.
Capacity and Control: These guns use 70 round drums and are smooth cycling, heavy, accurate, and comfortable to hold. It's basically an assault rifle with a sub-caliber setup... a very controllable and accurate gun in full auto. It's so smooth due to the weight, layout, and action; you can actually watch your target being hit through a 4x scope while shooting long bursts. The 'laser beam' performance of this gun makes it one of the most enjoyable full auto guns you'll ever shoot.
Can't Get Too Hot: These are ideal for machine-gun shoots. The low-pressure 9mm round cannot create enough heat in the barrel to cause a malfunction or damage the gun. There's no gas system to clog, and the open-bolt system negates any cook-off risk.

A few of my neighbors and I went out to the Big Sandy Machine Gun Shoot. We took one of your Suomi guns and a STG 1928. They ran like well oiled machines. Thank you for making such a great product!
The m31 Suomi is my favorite subgun and this version from Brian and BRP is very close. The differences in design are very well covered by Ian from the Forgotten Weapons YouTube channel. Minus the design differences they handle and fire identically. If I was blindfolded I’m not sure if I’d be able to tell the original apart from the BRP version. I’m also a fan of the side charging handle instead of it being on the rear of the receiver. Brian and the BRP company are always a pleasure to deal with and I’d definitely recommend this subgun to anyone who is a fan of the Suomi style of machine guns.
Brian, Finally out of jail and in hand. This thing is a hoot to shoot. Runs great, zero issues, absolutely fantastic. Thanks so much for a sweet build. Can’t wait to let Dad do some mag dumps for Father’s Day next month! Hope y’all are doing well. Looking forward to visiting GA sometime. Take care! Sincerely, Don in VA
Had tons of fun with your guns.
I purchased this full auto Stemple Suomi 9mm based on the Finnish KP31. Upon receipt I observed that it was extremely well packaged and in perfect condition. After reading the very informative and easy to follow manual, it took only minutes to install the barrel and shroud. On the range for the first time (and every time since) I loaded the 70 round drum with inexpensive ammo and was thoroughly pleased how smoothly and cool it fired. Recoil was enjoyably light, too. And, there haven’t been any malfunctions at all. In addition, if there is such a thing as a tack driver in a subgun, this is it. I highly recommend BRP for their outstanding products, knowledge and dedicated support. Thank you Brian, for everything!
