      Can’t say anything other than....... I would love to have 2 more, One 40 and the compact in 9mm.

      It feels like it was made just for my hand and shoots great!

      If I had bought the compact I believe it would be my EDC!!

      How does the P99 AS compare to the Glock 17, as far as quality/reliability,recoil,accuracy? Im kinda torn between the two guns. I do like the looks of the P99 far better than the Glock.

      My 9mm P99 is as accurate and reliable as my 9mm Glock. No failures of any type with either one. Quality is also essentially the same.

      My P99 is my favorite polymer handgun. That being said, I don't know that I would purchase one now, given what they are going for these days. Locally, the Walther is about $200 more than the Glock (about $150 more if you mail order). You just have to decide if the better ergonomics is worth the extra money.....

      I was torn between the Glock 22 and the Walther P99 (.40 cal). I went with the Walther because it felt better in my hands. Although I have had to send my P99 back to Smith and Wesson twice sincce I bought it in August 2009. It has had magazine issues, to the say the least. I also had the slide Cerakote finished in order to get the two-tone. Now if only they would start producing the BA-5 laser again for the P99 I would be all set.

      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.

      Awesome! Does the gun have a lifetime warranty?

      No, one year limited warranty according to Walther. But they never asked for a receipt nor a purchase date. They just took my information over the phone then sent me a FedEX shipping label. They seem like they are eager to please the customer, so I would imagine they would warranty the gun regardless.

      Fine gun. Not to big for many to carry, but some may find it difficult. Many people CCW full size 1911s and the P99 is smaller and lighter than that.

      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.

It is just as accurate and reliable as our Glocks, Sigs, and H&K's. I also think it is a much nicer looking pistol than the other polymers out there, but of course this is purely a subjective opinion.

      The hard part is finding one. BTW, you want the "AS" trigger, instead of the "QA" trigger. Not that the QA is bad as it isn't, but that the AS is a bit better in most people's opinions.
      Why do most get the AS instead of the QA? It would seem to me that most people would like the consistent trigger pull of the QA? Am I missing something?

      If you're used to a Glock, the QA would probably appeal to you more. I like the DA/SA operation better though.

      the QA trigger is heavy at 8lbs. it also semi-cocked and with squeezing the trigger, u can feel the heaviness of it. most p99 owners just like the smooth single action of the AS version.

      i replaced the stock QA striker spring for a lighter 5.5# spring to alleviate the heaviness of the trigger.

      Where did you purchase your spring at?

      bought mine from glockparts.com. i use the standard, stock Glock striker spring. it is rated at 5.5#. i've shot about 400rds without a problem.

      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.

      I have my G17 and prefer my P99 AS. And prefer it for the same reason Nolexforever said. "most p99 owners just like the smooth single action of the AS version."

      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 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
