How many of you own one of the P99 series of Walther pistol. I'm curious re why you like it or even why you don't. Thanks,

i have the p990 with night sights, i love it, had to shoot about 500 rounds through it before it began to group well, but i would not trade it for the world

P99, looks really good but that's about all its got going for it. I worked as a Weapon's sale's Person here in Bavaria Germany, and as part of my job I had to train potential hunter's in weapon's handling and teach them the fine art of shooting with rifle's and handgun's.

Now back to the Walther P99, the trigger is probably the worst thing ever to leave the Walther factory, this half cocked position is absolutely ridiculous, if you don't believe me try the thing at a pistol range, at 10 meter's my grouping was all over the show. I usually have a 3 to 4 inch grouping at 25 meter's.

be good, no be better.

Willkommen Toemag,
Nice to have you here!
Any comments on the P-22?
Sounds like a fun toy, but I haven't shot one yet.
Where in Bavaria are you?

Actually I own the S&W 99 version of it and I would have to say it does what its supposed to do , I actually like it better than the Walther version due to its softer more rounded edges . Now if I can only get a hold of some of those hi-cap mags from overseas

Mortech, You can order them from Earl's at $125.00 a pop. They're preban 88 high caps with a "P99" floorplate.

Not sure were you got the idea that the P99 hi-caps that Earl is selling are P88 mags but I can assure you they are not.

These two mag types are different designs as you can see:

This is a Walther P88 Hi-Cap mag-

And this is a P99 Hi-Cap as sold by Earl-

XM777, I can see the difference. Was only going by what I had been once told. Guess that I'll have to call Earl's in order to get what's what with the P99 high caps. Thanks for the pics.

$125 is a bit much since you can buy them for $80. I have seen them listed on the EE.

I have both the P88 Compact & the P99.

The hi-cap mag for P88s does work in the P99. Got my P88 Compact hi cap mags from Forest.

Waiting on my P22s to come in.

Montreal's police just ordered 4600 of those P-99.

Good choice i think !!!

I stuck with the P88, and yes the $125 is a bit much, but is what I paid for them in 1992 (preban). My son found the whole darn gun in Frankfort, Ger last week for $80 (American)! I ask him to check out the mags.
