Picked up thursday right before the lights went out up north a SW99 in 9mm with nite sites. First impressions found the gun with the medium backstrap, since I got small hands opted for the small backstrap. Needed a pin punch to remove the roll pin to relace the backstrap. The included manual seemed a little un-friendly but the gun diassembled easier than most of my guns. Just four parts to worry about. The gun had a anti-corrosive type of oil-grease, so I cleaned it. It came off pretty easy and I lightly lubricated the rails of the slide with Wilson Combat Grease, very lightly. I was carrying the Taurus PT-92 and the SW99 takes a lot less space and is much lighter. I traded the 2 factory mags for two of the Mec-Gar hi-caps. I will take the gun to the range this week so I will give a followup report.

I think I may have shot the SW99 better than any other gun I fired for the first time.

I hope to someday own their 9mm version.

I love my sw99 in .40 cal. Its a great tack driver. Lately I've been thinking about complementing it with a sw99 compact.

Smith makes their own Barrels and Slides. Walther makes the lower frame on both. I think the Walther is a little better IMO. I have a Walther P99 in .40S&W and a SW99 in .45 ACP my wife has a Walther P99 in 9mm.
