Is the P99Q basically the same thing as the PPQ but with a weird decocking feature and a striker indicator?

What is the reason for the decocking putton on the p99QA? Is there a difference in trigger pull between the P99QA and the PPQ? Appart from the Glock style trigger safety l don't understand the difference.

The P99QA are partially-cocked like Glocks. The trigger stroke cocks the striker the rest of the way before releasing. The decocking button releases that partial cocking.

As I understand what I have read elsewhere, the decocker is only on the P99AS. What you are seeing on the P99QA is to assist in taking the gun down for cleaning and maintenance. This actually comes from the owner's manual that comes with the P99 series handguns.

The P99QA is partially pre-cocked like a Glock is. That device on a QA does decock that preload on the striker. If you push it, it not only releases the preload, but also blocks the striker from hitting the primer while it is depressed. Once the striker is "deloaded", the trigger will not cycle the striker to fire the gun - thus is the gun is decocked.

To get the QA to fire you must partially(at minimum) cycle the slide to pre-load the striker. It only takes about 1/8th of an inch of slide movement to preload the striker again.

The only reason they might not call it a decocker is because the QA isn't fully cocked. But in reality that device on a QA does in fact decock the preload on the striker.
