This listing is for a very rare SITES Spectre HC Semi-Automatic 40 CAL pistol. This gun functions excellent, bore is clean, and finish is good to very good.
At just a little over 14 inches in length, this exceptional firearm is even more difficult to find than its rare 9mm version. Because of its larger caliper, it came originally with a 22 round clip (which is included).
The Spectre is an Italian submachine gun that was produced by the SITES factory in Turin. It was designed by Roberto Teppa and Claudio Gritti in the mid-1980s. Production in Italy ceased in the year 1997, with the closure of SITES, but proceeded in very small numbers in Switzerland through Greco Sport S.A., a company founded by one of the designers of the Spectre, Claudio Gritti, until 2001. During the mid 80’s and early 90’s, a limited number made its way to the states via imported by American Arms Inc. The Spectre is used by the Swiss armed forces and by Italian armed forces, and has been exported elsewhere.
The Spectre is a compact and light weapon, designed for instant firepower in close combat at short ranges. The four models have top-folding buttstocks, and were available with or without a forward handgrip ahead of the magazine housing. The largely polymer Spectre has a stamped-steel receiver.
The Spectre is a standard blowback firearm operating from a closed bolt; however it has some unusual features. The barrel shroud completely hides the barrel. The bolt is designed to pump air through the barrel shroud to provide additional cooling. The Spectre is hammer-fired and the trigger group is double action with a decocker. This allows the shooter to safely carry a round in the chamber and fire immediately. As this eliminates the need for cocking prior to shooting no manual safety is provided. Unconventional 22-round capacity, four-column magazine ise provided with the Spectre, but it can also use conventional magazines.
