Early .40 caliber P99 magazine floorplates had an issue with cracking. Check right at the interface with the metal mag body. Not a big deal, as Walther/Smith will provide new ones for free, but something to bargain with.

Right. Not a big deal, and certainly not a deal-breaker. There are other things far more important.

Thanks. I stopped in today and looked. I liked the gun but those pricks will never get a dime from me. What a bunch of mall Ninjas. I'm looking at another shop next week.

"Mall Ninjas" Now those are some seriously bad dudes.

Good luck on the hunt

Don't know about where you live but LGD around here give at least 30 day warranties on used guns. You get 30 days to shoot and live with it. If you have a problem they will get it fixed or give you credit on the money you spent for another of their guns. I haven't bought a new gun in 2 years and haven't had to take any of my "slightly used" back for repair.

Do I look them over real well before buying? You bet.

I prefer to put it through a TSA scanner to look for any hairline cracks

MGMike, thank you for the very structured and informative post on checking a used handgun. I have filed it away for future reference when teaching a class.

It's only pretending to be a P99 anyway.
