The SPHINX brand is deeply rooted in the Swiss tradition of precision craftsmanship. Originally founded in 1876 in Solothum, Switzerland as a precision tooling manufacturer, SPHINX has since evolved into the Swiss reference for pistol manufacturing. SPHINX compromises at nothing to provide the utmost in performance and craftsmanship to the law enforcement, military, competitive shooting, and collector’s communities. Starting with top-shelf materials, SPHINX firearms are completely machined from billet then meticulously hand fitted. Quality workmanship is paired with ergonomic design to ensure that every SPHINX pistol is a surgically precise tool that feels like an extension of the body. Though there are many faster and more economical ways to make a handgun, there is only one way to make a SPHINX, and that tradition of excellence is the cornerstone of the SPHINX brand.
