The Walther P99 is German made and imported into the US. They are now imported by Walther USA (also known as S&W), before this they were imported by Interarms. They are great guns I carry one myself. P99/40

I have shot their 9mm version. I HATE that little bump inside the trigger guard, it irritates the crap out of me. It also is a damn fine accurate little gun. If I had the $$$, I'd buy one just because.

They say "Made In Germany" and ACHTUNG: WARNHINWEISE BEACHTEN on the frame.

Walther proofmarks on the frame, slide and on the barrel. The slide is marked "Walther P99" (or P990 for the DAO), the frame and barrel are marked "WALTHER".

Matching serial numbers on the frame, slide and the original barrel (threaded barrles don't have a serial number).

It doesn't say SW anywhere.

I never said the gun said S&W on it. BUT actually it does say S&W next to the .40 on the barrel (talking about the round) if you want to get technical. But I said Walther USA also known as S&W.........

Mine was imported by Interarms before S&W started importing them.
