I did some of those.....modded some Mecgar +2 baseplates as well as some Walther +2's. Here's a P99C with a modified Walther +2 baseplate.....my favorite. Did quite a bit of sculpting on that one. Really adds a lot to the feel of the gun in the hand.

How much shorter is that P99C with your mod than the standard P99AS grip?

I can't answer that, as I sold all my P99's and P99C's. In all honesty, I prefer carrying a full size pistol. The reason for that is, I like a grip that fills up my hand....compacts just don't do that. The extension made it better, but a full size (PPQ) just fits and feels perfect. So, consequently, all I carry is PPQ's....pick a caliber....9mm, 40 S&W, .357 Sig and 45.

HK P30 Sk and Walther P99C are both great guns. Many similarities and a few differences too. I have both in my carry rotation.

P30SK - light LEM trigger, +2 mag extenders for 12 +1 to carry and 15 rd. full size back up mags with no grip adapters. A little heavier than the P99C but higher capacity, great trigger, hammer fired which provides safe reholstering technique and restrike capability

P99C - love the light trigger and short reset on this pistol. I prefer not to decock to carry in DA mode which causes me to have to pay extra attention to reholstering when in Condition 1. Full size backup magazines require grip adapters to avoid overinsertion, no restrike capability

I carry both, as well as full size in each model. Both are fine pistols but if I had to choose one over the other I am personally more comfortable with the P30 for the reasons noted above.

Gotcha. Thanks.

Since I don't have a P99 any more, I had to compare the size difference to my modded PPQ. I'd say the P99C with the +2 extension is about 5" shorter than the PPQ with the 30 round mag.

One POSSIBLE advantage to the P30SK is that I have read that because the grip is so good and you can fit it, it is satisfactory to shoot with NO mag or pinky extension - which makes it pretty small. With the P99c, it SOUNDS like most folks don't find it very good without the extension.

I DO like the slightly smaller size and the G26 weight of the Walther.

I do think getting KP quality at the same price is a good deal. Walther is good, but having handled a P30 and P45, it is a VERY well made piece, and hammer guns do feel more substantial.

With my P30SK and the flush fit 10 round magazine shooting with both hands I can consistently keep 10 rounds inside a 3 inch dot on the center of target at 7 yards. I do better with the extension with usually inside a 2 inch dot on the center of the target but both are plenty good for me for typical self defense distances.

jlavallee Trouble working and playing with others.
Weight is of massive importance to me in carry so between that, a better trigger, proper long paddles and not having those silly oversized slide release levers to potentially cause a malfunction it is a no brainer.

The HK unquestionably has better out of box sights but you change those anyway.

I personally never run the finger rest.

P99c or P30sk

On the P99C I like the finger extension floor plates and the longer mag release paddles.

With the finger extension floor plate on the P30sk it fits my hand perfectly; however I prefer carrying with the flat floor plate and pinky hanging off?

On a G26 I had bought the Pierce finger extension floor plates but removed them and prefer the OEM flat mag floor plates with my pinky hanging off for carry? Sometimes I will carry it with a Pierce +3 floor plate or a G19 ......15 round mag with a
Spacer or just carry my G19.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of these for carry.
