I have the SW99 on hold at my gunshop. I have only had one .45 (a CZ75B, but never even shot it).

I have an ASAI One-Pro that I am receiving today and so thought another .45 would be in order. Is the SW99 a good choice?

Thumbs up

I have one and it is all that you figure it should be.
However it is larger front to rear in the grip than the P99/SW99 in 40 or 9MM.
It is too large for my hands and I am actively trying to trade it for a P99C.

See the S&W forum for more info on this handgun.

Jeeeshhh! An ASAI .45? You certainly have a knack for finding all the neat guns.

Next thing we know is you found an ASAI 9.

Remember to try out the P10 or the Warthog. Great for CC. And, oh are they oh so accurate. 11 in the size (+-) of a PPK. But not the weight.

I did some trading of the dupes and pistols that I have just put away in the safe and added a SW99, the One-Pro, a Steyr M40, a CZ85 Compact in .40 and a SIG 220. I also got a P7PSP that I think is one of the most accurate pistol that I personally have shot and have another on the way (I think I will pretty one up).

I did part with the Sphinx AT2000P, though.

I saw a One-Pro stainless soem time ago and was not quick enough to close a deal and so have been looking for one. This one is blue and considerably lighter in weight than the other one. The trigger on it is unbelieveable--about #2-3 and you woudl think that you were firing a cap-gun.

My collection is becoming the wierd and unusual.

Naaaahh. It's only the strong European theme working its magic. That's why you need something to counteract those forces. Like the P10. Yeah, did notice the mastery with which you avoided the subject.

Closer to the home front, only two which I'm actively thinking about now, the Mauser HSc 9x18U and a Korth. That should keep me from buying guns for, let's say, the next thirty years.

Yes, it is an amazing SA trigger on the ASAI, isn't it?

It was available in both. *Mine is AS, but all of the new ones are in the S&W version of QA only.

Hey Cigarman, let me know if you run into a similar problem with your SW99 AS in .45 ACP that I've had with mine:

When only 3 rounds are left in the mag, the pistol will, on occasion, go to slide lock.

This happens with different types of ammo, including Federal American Eagle, Cor-Bon, and Winchester White Box, and with different magazines, and it doesn't happen consistently.

I've sent it back to S&W twice, and both times they replaced the slide lock bar and spring.

The thing is, I've shot many, many thousands of rounds through my P99 AS in 9mm with not one, 0, nein, problems in many IDPA matches and informal blasting sessions at New Holland and Atglen (I know you live close to me as we talked before when I sold you the Nill grips with finger rest for your P5).

I was hoping to use the SW99 for some bigger firepower. Not so sure now.

Weird.

-Jeff

jgilbertson,
Do your mags have the indent on the left hand side like the 40 cals mags do? I seem to recall reading that early 40 cal mags had the same effect on the P99. The last few rounds would activate the slide lock. This is why there are 3 rounds of followers, black, orange and now blue. May be the same issue with the new 45.
