Considering purchasing a P99c A/S in 9mm.Will the thing handle +P ammo?
Not sure - Don't have my manual (it is locked up in my safe deposit box - my insurance company told me that if it was stolen, I must have both a receipt AND the manual to prove I owned it). I think if U go to the Walther site, U can download the manual in a PDF file. It may say it there.
Thanks Ship. Already searched the manual and it does not mention +P at all. Maybe that's a hint.
I think it was discussed on the Walther Forum site, and someone found out that it was okay on the fullsize - of course, all companies typically say that the use of +p and +p+ ammo "accelerates the wear" of a firearm. Pretty much all gun companies say this.
But, I don't know about the compact P99.
Any one know who has a good price on the Walther P99C AS. Bud's won't ship to NY.
I would try searching for local dealers here: http://www.waltheramerica.com/dealers.cfm This model can be hard to find, but a dealer should be able to order one for you.

I saw many P99s at the big Houston gunshow this past Sat, and some were compacts. Unfortunately, they were all QAs.
See if U can talk to a local shop who is willing to go outside of their typical distribtor. Maybe they can find ya one.
I never found a 100% answer, but on the Walther forum someone apparently asked the factory and was told no to +P..
On the other hand, I ran about 40 rounds Black Hills +P through the P99c and the thing didn't blow up on me or anything..
I'm just used to carrying a 1911, and the thought of a 9mm kind of leaves me feeling a little under gunned. Don't want to go with the .40 S&W. I could always practice with the standard load and just use the +P for a defensive load. Kind nervous doing this though.
Looking for something smaller/lighter than my 1911. Maybe the 4" XD45 will do, but I am liking the P99 a lot - especially the AS trigger.
Walther P-99 AS
I'm a gun dealer in Arizona. I just checked my dealer's inventory and I can find a few of the P-99C AS in 9 mm also they have the P-99 AS in both 9mm and in .40 cal. If someone wants one, I would have to ship it to your FFL. Your cost would be:
P-99C AS 9mm @$576.00
P-99 AS 9mm 4" w/ 15 rd mags@$606.00
P-99 AS .40 4" w/12 rd mags@$576.00
These prices include shipping to the lower 48 states. Payment would be made by US postal money order, I will receive the gun 24 hours after I order it.
Handgun transfer in Arizona usually runs $25.00, I don't know what your FFL
will charge you.
Iím gonna wait and see what the XD45 SC looks like before making a purchase. Thanks for posting that info Bill, itís a good price. I will look you up when ready to spend.
My dealer in Springfield Mo. has a new in box P99c a/s for $485.00. Don't know if he will ship or not. I think it has a 2004 date code on it.Dealer name is Loftis jewlers. Nice people to deal with.
