P99C - softer shooting?

I've read this on a couple of threads now. Is the P99C really softer shooting? Is it because of the different spring setup? Sounds like a 'winner' of a Walther. All True?

I don't know about soft but my P99c is a great shooter and my go to carry gun. Not much different than my P99. Heck, all of my Walthers perform well.

It's softer shooting than a 10mm or .357SIG....

I don't have any issues with mine. Then again, a Ruger Super Redhawk in .44 Mg with hot handloads doesn't faze me, either. It's all relative.

The only small gun that really gave me pause was an XD-S in .45 with +p loads....that sorta stung my hand. Other than that, I've never had anything in roughly the size of the PPS/P99cbother me in the least. But as I said, it's all subjective.

It depends what your baseline is for soft or perception there of. My wife and son (14ys.) feel it's softer that my Glock 22 .40 and Sig P232 .380 but not as soft as my keltec p32 .32

BTW My p99C is a 9mm. Have get one it's an awesome platform. Get a 15rd. mag. And a mag sleeve and you got basically a full size too.

I own one of each, P99 and P99c, both 9mm. The full size feels less snappy to me, but most of my shooting is USPSA or similar, so "softer" to me tends to mean "easier to control in recoil" and "easier to maintain accuracy while shooting quickly." YMMV - shoot them back to back with the same ammo and see what you think.
