Yes, they fixed the issue. They gave me two new magazines and replaced the magazine release mechanism. They paid for shipping to and from. Smith and Wesson's warranty policy is great and it only took two weeks before they sent it back.
If you are looking for small poly guns along the lines of the P99, also look at the smaller Glocks and XD pistols. And as always. Bersa is coming out with a new CC poly at the end of the year or early next.
If you're used to a Glock, the QA would probably appeal to you more. I like the DA/SA operation better though.
i replaced the stock QA striker spring for a lighter 5.5# spring to alleviate the heaviness of the trigger.
Others guns have been traded away. This one remains. :smt023:smt023:smt023
i must warn u, other people have gotten the 4# striker spring and experienced light strikes during their range trips. so the possibility is there, even on the 5.5# spring. different ammo can be a factor. if this is a duty/carry weapon, i would advice against it. that is my warning.
So by frame size it's as big as a xd 9mm or sig 239? I only mention those because I held both today at the gun shop. The reason I ask is I'm looking for a smaller than a full size xd (which I have) to conceal carry.
I'm so frustrated, thought the 239 would be the perfect pistol, only to find it's about as big as a 229....
Don't want a .380, my searches take me to a Kahr, they just look fugly...
Wish I could have held a P99 today,,,looks like a sweet pistol.
I have an HK USP9C and have been wanting to add one of these to my collection.
I bought a P99 AS (.40S&W) about 3 weeks ago now, love the comfort of grip, smooth shooting, accuracy, and sharp looks, also, I dont feel this is too big for concealed carry....price up here in MA is about $800 but got $80 off when purchased, so it came in at $730...I will never get rid of this gun, I absolutely love it...next is a Sig226 possibly, who knows, but the P99 is the most comfortable handgun Ive ever held...not to mention its real easy to field strip...I recommend these to anyone...Walther P99 AS has my vote...(and my money)..haha
