I know I started it at the Walther Forun already, but the poll here allows more options.

Did the majority of them....

P99 9mm AS in the old design, got my vote. The AS before it was stamped AS, back in the day when it was just called the P99.
Ship - You made that a hard vote for me I have to give you that. You had the Bond, the QPQ . . . forgot the Titianum Coated and the 007 Edition in 40SW . . . that wasn't on purpose was it . . .

I voted SW99 .40 cal. My favorite and my carry and nightstand gun. Check back in a year or so, and my Walther P99 A/S 9mm may be my fav!
well had to pick the only one i have... old style A/S 9mm!
Well, prev, I liked the 2004 frames. But, when I got an 05 frame last year, it really started to grow on me. In photos, the shorter mag release looks better. BUt in person, it really looks almost the same. And, I've gotten so used to the longer mag release now. Its even easier to work. Less motion of the hand required.
So, I am the lone vote for the 9mm 2005 A/S
Can some post a pic of the 2004 and 2005 frames............I dont know which one I have...
This is the 2004 Frame. New rail and trigger guard and some minor slide changes...
This is the 2005 Frame (still what is available now). Almost like the 2004 frame, but a minor change to the trigger guard and now the longer mag release....
I like the 2004 and 2005 frames styles the best. Visually in photos, the 2004 looks better with the shorter mag release. But now that I have the 2005, I like the longer release better. It is more convienient. And, in person, the longer release looks better than it does in photos.

P99/AS fullsize 9mm.... hands down
the only other one that would come close is the P99/QPQ old style 9mm
Mine's also an original from back before the day when S&W was importing them!!
Mine was brought in by Interarms!!

Yes, holsters fit the new or old. The change wasn't enough to affect holsters.
I, actually, like the new frame and the old style slide.
Are there any plans known about to make a P99 (or similar) in a .357 Sig or a .45ACP? Just wondering.
And, I have heard zero about 357 sig.
Granted, there are Euro companies, like Sig, that DO make weapons in these calibers. Unfortunately, Walther does a crappy job of advertising here in the US. And, I do not think we are a priority market.
If you have a P99 that is DAO, How does that make it a semi-automatic? Carl Is now push in Germany the P99 DAO, P99 QA and P99 AS which must be the semi auto.
Now on your list you have the SW. Sorry but I don't look at anything that has a SW infront of it to be a Walther nor a true gun. S&W has gone down hill and should close their doors and sell of what they have to companies who take care of their customers. You knew that was coming. Now Carl is pushing the new PPS as the new pocket pistol. It's ugly so you will want to hide it in your pocket. Knowing me two months from now I'll think it's the best looking thing on earth next to BBQ. Do you know if Walther will make a 45 in Germany? If I'm to get another Walther it will have to be imported from Germany so the crooks at S&W won't take you for a ride of your life.
I have my two Walthers and have ordered the mag extension for 10 dallors each for my compact from Germany. Why wait for S&W and they will make you pay through the nose. Heating oil just went up.
