The Steyr-Solothurn S1-100, better known under its Austrian military designation, MP 34 (Maschinenpistole 34, literally "Submachine gun 34"), is a Swiss-Austrian submachine gun produced by Steyr-Solothurn AG. The S1-100 was based on the Rheinmetall MP19, an experimental German submachine gun design developed by Louis Stange. The S1-100 is often regarded as one of the best submachine guns from the interwar period, earning it the sobriquet "Rolls Royce of submachine guns".

The S1-100 was widely offered for export in many different calibers. In 1930, the Austrian police adopted a 9x23mm Steyr version of the S1-100 as the MP.30. The Austrian army adopted the S1-100 as the MP.34, chambered in 9×25mm Mauser. The S1-100 was sold in limited numbers to China and Japan, chambered in 7.63×25mm Mauser. Portugal adopted versions of the S1-100 in .45 ACP, 7.65×22mm Luger, and 9×19mm Luger, in different numbers at different times. When Germany annexed Austria in 1938, the German military converted many existing S1-100s into 9x19mm Parabellum, and designated them as the MP.34(ö) (Maschinenpistole 34 österreichisch, literally "Submachine gun 34, Austrian"). They were used in limited numbers during World War II.
