Have shot both the 99&99c both with the DPM recoil systems. The 99 is a bit and only a bit "softer" than its 99c. Both were in 9mm shot both right after the other.

Used the P99c in USPSA (Production) for several years, as it was my only gun at the time. The P99c was alright, and for somebody who doesn't have the time/budget to put in a lot of live fire practice, I was doing ok, but the full size was clearly an upgrade; the first classifier I shot with it was just barely into B class (63%), and so far, remains one of my highest scores. I just got the full size in summer of 2016, and I'm still trying to fight my way out of C and into B, but the new gun definitely made a positive difference in my scores.

Long story short, I think the P99c is ok for USPSA, but if you use it for that purpose, you're handicapping yourself at least a little bit. The full size is easier to do well with.

Thanks for the great info! I'm going to check out USPSA and see if I like the atmosphere and run my "C" then might be time for a P99 . Cheers J

jlavallee Trouble working and playing with others.
I have never noticed a difference even with a full size mag and spacer in the P99c although I've never specifically tested for it although I have shot both back to back many times.

I asked because I read it more than once, and it MIGHT make sense given less slide mass and a different spring setup. But no evidence here. Thanks.
