Awesome, this information is great. However, I (being the guy that I am) have to throw a wrench in the gears.

So, my AS is a Walther P99, not a SW99. The extra machine clearencing on the slide (like all the AS models) is not there....

Here's what I am talking about..

This is my model


Here is another 3g P99 with the relieved end of the slide


Am I missing something here?

That's the difference between the .40 and the 9mm. The 9mm has the more complex front on the slide. See http://www.gunfaqs.org/P99FAQ/I/1.html

beat me to it!

as i was told, the relief cut is to make the 9mm slide lighter, and it is also shorter overall than the .40 slide
the reason for the lighter slide is that both calibers use the same recoil assembly

Makes sense, right? .40 cal is an American thing?

Were their ever any British gun makers? What did the British army shoot during WWII?

World War II

The official service pistol for the British military during World War II was the Enfield No. 2 Mk I .38/200 calibre revolver,[11] but owing to a critical shortage of handguns, a number of other weapons were also adopted (first practically, then officially) to alleviate the shortage. As a result, both the Webley Mk IV in .38/200 and the .455 calibre Webley Mk VI were issued to personnel during the war.[12]

Idon't think anyone will ever agree - but once again, I say:

1st - beginning to 2003
2nd - 2004
3rd - 2005 to present

That's also been the standard way to look at it among most of the members of this site in the past - until recently when some of the newer people have come in. Now they want to change things
