   The Spectre M4 submachine gun was developed in Italy by Roberto Teppa and Claudio Gritti in the mid 1980s. This weapon was designed primarily for close combat. It was produced by SITES factory since 1984. Production ceased in Italy in 1997 with the closure of the SITES factory. Small-scale production continued in Switzerland by Greco Sport company until 2001. Currently this submachine gun is in service with Italy, France, Switzerland and possibly some other countries. It is mainly used by law enforcement forces.

   Layout of this weapon is generally similar to Beretta PM12, another Italian submachine gun, which was developed in the 1950s. It is a blowback operated weapon, which fires from the closed bolt. It is chambered for 9x19 mm ammunition. The receiver is made of stamped steel. Some sources claim that the Spectre M4 has an effective range of only 50 m.

   This SMG has a double action trigger group, without manual safety. The Spectre can be safely carried with loaded chamber and fired immediately. An ambidextrous cocking handle is located on top of the receiver, so the weapon can cocked using either hand.

   The Spectre M4 SMG is fed from 30- or 50-round capacity magazines. It is worth mentioning that civilian versions of this weapon are available with 5-, 10- or 15-round magazines.

   This submachine gun has a collapsible stock, which folds over the housing. This weapon is available with or without a forward vertical grip. It is compatible with silencer.
