I've been trying to figure out which DA wondernine that I'm going to purchase in a little over a month. At the range today, I spotted a compact P99(9mm Luger). After hearing your endless ranting about the greatness of this pistol, I just had to inquire further. I asked the owner whether it was an "AS" or "QA" model. Sure enough, the slide read "P99c AS". I politely asked if I could try it.
Upon examining the loaded pistol, I saw the big red cocking indicator. It was very visible, even while looking down the sights. One of the things I dislike about striker-fired pistols is that you can't see the status of the striker mechanism. This impressed me. I tried the neat decocker button and proceeded to fire it in DA. This is the first time I fired a striker-fired pistol's trigger that did not feel like crap. It actually felt great. Smooth and crisp. Not too light and not too heavy. The SA trigger was just as good. I dislike compacts but this one shot very well for a compact. It operated smoothly and with little muzzle rise, despite the short barrel and grip.
So now I'm going to get myself a Walther P99 AS. It will be late February or early March as a birthday gift to myself. We know that this is your fault, Shipwreck. The pistol is actually as great as you said it was.
