I am a proud new owner of a P99.



It shoots well, the only problem is that it eats on your trigger finger after a couple hundred rounds.

Oh I'm used to that, my CCW is a Makarov . Nice piece, BTW

Got a P99 in .40S&W (OD/Black)


and one in 9mm (Black/Black).


I like 'em a lot!


I also told myself I'd never buy a gun with OD furniture. But when I saw a P99 in OD I quickly changed my mind. It looks damn good in OD.

Picked up one of the titanium and black 9mm models for my wife about a year ago. Nice guns but I think I'll stick with my 1911 for my CCW choice.

First gun I ever bought.....and still one of my favorites. Over 10,000 rounds and still going strong.
Link Posted: 7/20/2005 6:01:11 AM EDT
I just bought one, in fact I am leaving work in an hour to get it on my permit, and pick it up. In .40 S&W with the OD frame....liked it in .40 since my USP is in .40.....

Can't wait to try it!

does anyone have one of the Quick Action models??? It is supposed to have a single action trigger and a decocker.

How do these compare to a standard P99???

Thanks

The p99 can be carried decocked and loaded so the first shot is a very long pull about 2 inches at a heavy 7.5 to 8lbs after that the pull is .5 inch at around 4-5.5 lbs the decock button on the QA is smaller by around half other than that they are the visually the same

I had always heard the QA has a DOA trigger similair in feel to a glock

[Last Edit: 7/20/2005 7:19:57 AM EDT by glockguy40]
CDNN advertises a:

1) Quick action model (QA)
2) DAO model
3) a regular P99

I am confused. If the quick action model has a trigger similar to the feel of a glock (which has a DAO trigger), what does the P99 DAO model's trigger feel like
Link Posted: 7/20/2005 1:42:18 PM EDT
Actually that's not right. The Glock is a single action only with a 2 stage trigger. Total pull is about 5lbs. The QA is sort of a 1 1/3 action trigger with a single stage pull of about 9 lbs. The The DAO has a pull around 12 lbs with a single stage pull comparble to a revolver. The AS trigger is a DA/SA and has about a 6lb single and a 12 lb double action pull. The single action pull is staged and the DA pull is singlew pull.

Toe Ball where did you find a 34 round mag for the p99 or is that a glock mag ?will it work in the p99?
Link Posted: 7/23/2005 8:45:47 PM EDT
Link Posted: 7/23/2005 11:50:35 PM EDT
The 34 round mag is more then likely a modified Berretta magizine. I did the same with some 15 rounders so they would work in my P99.
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 7:24:27 AM EDT
I got my P99 back in 2000. Its an all German made .40sw in an OD frame. I listen to all these people put down the P99 and hold up there 1911's and Glooks as well as there USP's. I have shot the best I ever have with the P99 and to date she has about 4,000 rounds through her on the original barrel. IMHO I think that this pistol could have no trouble holding its own against any of the others and probably leave most of them in its wake. But all in all there is one thing that no one can take and that is that that man mr. Bond uses it, If its good enouph for 007 then its good enouph for anyone!

Which Bond film is 007 using a P99 in? Iwas watching the newer ones a few weeks ago and Brosnan was still using a PPK, which is a pistol I can't stand BTW. Also comparing a P99 is like comaring a 60's Vette to a modern on. They both do the same job but a modern one is more relaible and easier to live with. As far as comparing a Glock to a P99, well at least that's fair. The Glock is a little more practical, having a lower bore axis, and being slightly smaller, put the P99 is FAR superior in ergonomics. All my friends crry Gocks, my brother both love Glocks. My P99 may be a blck sheep but I still like it way better.
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 9:30:03 AM EDT
I guess we'll throw in some Bond stuff...

Brosnan used the PPK in Goldeneye, and he made the switch to the P99 in Tomorrow Never Dies. He's had the P99 for The World is Not Enough and I think Die Another Day (which I only saw once, and thought it sucked). In the original teaser movie poster for Die Another Day, it shows a silenced Beretta 9mm on a block of ice. I don't know how they let that one slip...

I saw those mags at sportsmansguide, is it any good?
Link Posted: 7/30/2005 7:10:14 PM EDT
It's a fun range mag. The bullet sits a little low in the pistol so it feeds ball ammo no problem but hollow points just plow into the feed rail. Also, with that much travel in the mag, loading a patrially loaded mag aggressivley can cause the bullet to stand upright, but I experianced that with my 14 round bestmag too, though not quite to the same degree. It's definatley fun to take to the range...

So how do you modify beretta mags to work in a P99????
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 7:42:34 PM EDT
You cut a new notch for the mag catch. If my 34 rounder is a Baretta mag the lips place the bullet low on the feed rail so it feeds ball ammo ok, but hollow points won't cycke

cool thanks

I devirginized myself today out on the range with my new (and first gun purchased ever) Walther P99 QA .40

Now, I haven't shot a handgun since I was 14ish @ my Uncle's cabin so this was a new experience, but it was very pleasing. Gotta say I love this pistol! Here
Also note these pictures were right when I got it and I hadn't cleaned it. I went to the range as I said today and cleaned it quite thoroughly when I got home. It looks MUCH better cleaned up lol. There are some visible smudges and such in the pics.

Thx, a friend on another site pointed me to ar15.com. Seems like an awesome community.

EDIT: Nice AS btw bluebomber. I do like the new looks and I may get a 9mm P99QAC possibly later in the new look. I deff wanna hold one though first and make sure it's not too small heh.

i didnt realize the p 99 s slide is made by smith and wesson?i know they make the slide for their version but on the right side and foreward you can clearly see smith and wesson on the picture posted by justinok34.
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 12:37:56 PM EDT
IIRC, Smith & Wesson either bought or merged with Walther. I think it was around the year 2000 or 2001, anyone know?

On the OD/black Walther on my first post, the front/right of the slide reads
"WALTHER USA LLC
SPRINGFIELD, MA"

I bought that one back in 2002.
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 2:09:23 PM EDT
I *think* S&W only imports them. Anyways I have a P99 made in 2000 that is 100% walther
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 8:43:42 PM EDT
Yeah it seems you can get some that are purely made in Germany, then there are some that are made in the US and Germany but both Walther. And the third is Walther Germany for the frame, SW for the slide. *Shrug*

I had heard that the AS version of the P99 that was made by SW had some problems, but I'm certainly not having any probs with my QA SW slide. I can tell ya that :)
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 10:06:25 PM EDT
P99 was one of the first guns i considered buying. the rental i was shooting at my local range had a problem with stovepiping but other than that i really like the gun. i was originally choosing between the P99, USP, 226 and a Glock all in .40 The USP won out, and i have recently been thinking about getting a 226 in 9mm but things aren't looking good there. I'm very tempted to give this another try. .40 seems to be the more popular round, any particular reason you guys aren't getting this in 9mm?

Here's my 2004 P99QA Titanium in .40 S&W....courtesy of CDNN (funny thing is that I ordered a pre-2004 P99QA Titanium in 9mm and they accidentally sent me this gun for the same price....sold)



By the way, a pre-2004 P99AS Military in 9mm is on it's way to me....so I'll post a photo of it when I get it.

I've never had a jam in either of my Walthers, and I've put through hundreds of rounds in both. The Walther at your range has probably been abused to all hell.

As for the choice between .40 and 9mm, this thread appears to be close half and half. Plenty of folks here have it in 9mm. I have it in both.

But if I were to guess why its popular in the "Foh-tee" model, it's because we're all professional enough!
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 7:45:31 AM EDT
I got mine used for $375. The price was good enough I didn't care if it was a 9mm or a .40.
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 3:57:44 PM EDT
Not really sure why I picked .40S&W. As this was my first gun, I did some reading and it seemed for personal defense it was better. That was partially my reason. I also read it was a fairly new caliber, and I was willing to give it a try. ;)

Goin to the range tomorrow to fire off another 200 rounds or so. Wooohoo!

Mine is an original interarms import in 9mm. I picked it up back when they first entered the country, and I still love it.

btw here is a link to a FAQ page about who made what and when. It is a good P99 thread.
