Post a link to an add touting an 11 # DA trigger pull on the P99. I think the PPS has something like that in Maine, maybe the P99 does too, but that'd be news to me.

Walther advertises the P99 as having a 9 lb. DA pull and a 4.5 lb. SA pull. I have a Lyman digital trigger pull gauge....and confirmed these ratings on my P99.



Here ya go.....this covers ALL the current P99 offerings (P99 9mm/40, P99C 9mm/40). They all have the SAME trigger pull....see below.

Don't know where you're getting that figure. The 9-pound DA/4.5-pound SA figures I got came from the WaltherArms website. But, just to make sure, I went to the German CarlWalther.DE website and double checked. There they list the trigger as 4,000gr DA/2,000gr SA, which works out to 8.82 pounds DA and 4.41 pounds SA.

My Wrong Guys, I got the 11# from the thread on here about triggers posted on 12-11-13 by IOF. I must have looked at every review that there is and have tried to compare the 99 with others. Too much info. Sorry gents and thanks for straightening me out. Quick

No problem, Quick. Personally, I'm a tweaker......a spring changer.....I mess with everything. Sometimes I do good, other times not. But I always learn something along the way. Yep, the P99C is a fine pistol, and the three trigger modes (DA, AS & SA) are unique in the industry. The DA pull, at 9 lbs. is so smooth, it doesn't seem like 9 lbs. and ALL followup shots automatically transition to SA, which just happens to be one of the BEST SA pulls/breaks and reset on the market.

If you're looking for a compact pistol with a DA/SA pull, you can't do better than a P99C. I use 'slickguns' search engine to find deals....it doesn't list EVERY seller out there, but it does a pretty nice job. Here ya go...I searched using the UPC code for a 9mm ( https://www.slickguns.com/search/apa...0113?view=list ).

To TANFOGLIO:

Is it possible that you could post a comparison shot of the frame and trigger systems as well. I have a P99QA made in Germany and distributed by Walther USA, and a P99QA made by S&W. Looking at the 2 frames, the trigger systems appear to be completely different. The one made by S&W feels nothing like the German made trigger pull and feels more like what I would imagine a DAO trigger would feel like but everything is labeled and stamped P99QA and all serial numbers match the frame, barrel, and slide. I am wondering if S&W messed up and accidentally labeled a DAO model QA. Much appreciated.

Please post some photos of your S&W made P99QA.

Working late tonight. I'll get those up as soon as I can. I tried setting up a photobucket account but ran into some problems. If someone has an already established account and would be willing to upload some photos for me, pm me a link or address where I should send them. Thank you.

Is the decocker button elongated, or rather short and shaped like a profile view of one's thumbnail?

If it's short and oddshaped, it is a QA....to my best knowledge, the DAO guns had the decocker of the AS versions...


As for S&W, they were the importer of Walther guns prior to 2013, but if it's a 9mm Walther it WAS made in germany. There should also be two pair of numbers on the right side of the slide...a "DE" and then another pair....such as AK, or BA, BB, etc. That second set indicates the year made...A=0, K=9.

Therefore, AK = 09, BA=10, bb=11, bC=12, BD=13. There was no J, and AI indicates 2008.

The "DE" simply indicates Germany, where it was made.

Even if it was S&W manufactured, the frame will still say made in germany An example of this is Magnum Research's line of MR9 and MR40 pistols. One can use a PPQ Classic slide and barrel on those, regards to caliber.
Mags also interchange, again, wrt caliber. I've a few MR9 mags for my Q Classic, but that's straying from your train of thought.

Post pics, we could all stand to gain.

I will be posting side by side pics of the 2 guns, slides and frames. My German one has a beautiful smooth trigger pull that stops and releases the firing pin at exactly the half way point. I carry it as a duty weapon.

The S&W model has a long harsh pull and the trigger must be pulled all the way to the rear to release the firing pin (only had a few rounds through it and still needs to be properly broken in). There are also more internal parts in the S&W model that are not present in the Carl Walther LLC model.

Pictures of both weapons. Both are .40 cal. The Carl Walther USA LLC will always be shown first or on the left if side by side with the S&W.
