    Walther P99 or FN FNP-9?

    Fit/finish, accuracy, reliability, value and overall quality which is the better pistol? New the Walther is about $120 more. Im torn between these two. I prefer the styling of the Walther but love that the FN is made in the USA. What do you guys think?

    thanks,

    The FNP is a great, great value. High quality firearm for an exceptionally low price. If the styling on the Walther is worth the extra cash, get the Walther.
    I am picking up a FNP, since they seem to have a very great rep for accuracy and reliability.

    Ya know, I run the FN Forum, so, one would think I am biased. The FNP is a great quality gun.

    But everyone else here knows I am a P99 fanatic.

    If it is the P99 A/S model (be aware of the different triggers) - I'd get the P99 in a heartbeat.

    There isn't anything wrong with the FNP. The quality is not any less.

    It's just that the P99 is awesome. I can't explain it, but I gave up trying to find another gun that I can shoot as well as my P99. When I buy new guns now, they are for my "collection." After trying for so long, I know I won't find any other gun that I can shoot as well as that P99. It's really strange. But for me, that is "the gun."

    Get a SW99. It's cheaper than the P99, and half made in the USA.

    And:

    Comes with a lifetime warranty backed by S&W... (Walther's one year)

    And:

    You can pick a new one up cheaper than the Walther.

    And: My buddy has an SW99 and when he and I shot them head to head the accuracy was the same... (Extremely good).

    But:

    It's not a Walther...

    That's why I have the P99c/AS & P99/AS...

    You won't go wrong with the SW99, but if you decide on the Walther be sure and consider the "AS" (DA/SA) model.

    Just options and personal opinions.

    The SW99 just isn't as cool looking. It may not matter to you, but it does to me. Get the Walther.

    I had a SW99 and a P99 - the SW99 was not as accurate when shot head to head. Not much difference, but a little. I actually had the SW99 first.
