The question I have... how rare are the QPQ P99's
If i had a chance to buy one with 150 shots fired.. how much should it be worth.....
I am new to the Walther's and both my P99AS (9mm and .40)where less then $440 before tax....
thanks
Oliver

ok got some more info on the gun.....
The right side of th slide has no markings but the eagle proof mark... there is no serial # and no Import markings.. and it also has the Euro rear sight.......
Please any insight on how it can be there is no import markings?

*edit too early in the morning .... the year code is KK which would make it a 99

There would have to be a serial number someplace, at least on the back of the frame.

Well yea.. it has a serial# on the barrel..... but my point was it had no serial# on slide nor did it have import markingson on the slide.... just the proof mark....
I just was curious if it should cost me more $ than any other .40 Walther or what the fair market value might be... I am kinda not sure about buying a used gun since I am so new to the gun thing... but I like the 2 tone look and I am not sure if the seller is aware of that it is a QPQ....(I heard that the Titanium coated ones easily rust if they get moist or get carried ISW) on top of it with the Euro rear sight...(outlines instead of 2 dots)

Well, I don't think I would pay any more for it over a regular version - used or new. But, if you want it and can get it at a fair price, go for it. As for the finish, U can always get the slide hard chromed later - I did, and it looks almost like the titanium finish.

Thumbs up

The lack of importer stamping is ONE possibility, according to the P99 FAQ... meaning it came from Earl's. The original buyer would have paid a TON for it, being a "Euro" model and going thru Earl for it. A .40 QPQ "Euro" to me would be worth a *small* amount more only because there are very very few of them around.

But, as ShipWreck has pointed out, you gotta do what is right for you. If the price is right, go for it, but doing a hard chrome from Tripp for approx $90 on one of your current P99s may be another solution if you like the 2-tone look and if collecting the "Euro" angle does't matter to you.

For what it's worth, CDNN has the new style Titanium 40 cals for $489.

he wants 650.......
I also called Earl to see if the gun came through him.... since there is nothing on the right side of the slide than the eagle and N proofmark...... though I thought Earl only did 9mm and not .40

Earl does both, but seems to favor the 9mm for some reason. I would pass at $650, but I'm not willing to pay "collector" prices for a used Earl piece. The lack of the importer stamp and the euro rear sight don't matter THAT much to me. Again, if you like the look but don't care about the Earl factor, then send one of yours to Tripp or find a "holster worn" (I hesitate to call it a "beater&quot P99 out there and send IT to Tripp.

The "Blue Book of Gun Values" doesn't say anything about an Earl premium.

Well I called the gunstore today .... $260 @60% and i think or $280....$550 new never shot anyhow... id be willing to pay $400 for a Euro P99 .. just that i can't go look at the gun and being new to all this kinda makes me wonder if its a good thing to buy a gun private ......not knowing what to ask and look for... and somebody saying 150 rounds.. how can one really tell
As of the finish.. yea i can get another one hardchromed,, but I do look a the collectors point too..QPQ in .40 where not imported till 1999 and not as many as the 9mm...though they will never get a real collectors value i think....

As for the Titanium from CDNN.. it's a QA if I recall right,,, thought that was the only way to get the Titanium anymore...

Anyhow thank you all for the imput... I will wait to hear form Earl to see if it was one of his guns.. and then see what the guy is willing to to on the price . not willing to pay $650 at all no matter what,,, just bought 2 guns.. I don't have that much $$ around plus wife would use it maybe on me if I bought a 3rd one hehehe
