With no 9mm available, only the 40cal on the market and the fact that the P99 is an M1 version you might assume that Walther would introduce a new M2 version to compete with the Sig 365 and others?

This little volcano is far from being extinct. She spits fire and smoke at regular intervals and causes immense damage to any paper targets in the vicinity.

Admittedly, her location is not on the North American continent.

However, based upon her manufacturer's online site it appears she's been abandoned!

I already pointed out (in post #9) that the model has long since disappeared from the carl-walther.de website.

The one you see in the picture is continuing to do what nasty little volcanos do - namely erupting at regular intervals.

Yep, THAT's what I'm talkin' about.

I need to look into purchasing one on your side of the pond and having it exported/imported to Uhmerika.

Theoretically, that would be possible, but as far as I understand it would have to be done on a dealer-to dealer basis. You'd drive yourself nuts with the hoops you'd have to jump through if you attempted to do it as an individual. I'm sure there must be some members on the forum who have attempted an import - maybe they could chime in with their experiences.

The cost is another major factor. The P99c AS retailed at exactly the same price as the full-size P99 AS, which has a current MSRP of 869 Euros (and I've seen it in some places at $1,050). On top of that, you'd have to factor in the extra administrative work of both the export and import parties.

So.......possible, but probably tedious and expensive.

If OF really, really wants it I believe he would spend the bucks. Hell....he's loaded and can easily afford it!

While we're on the subject, I had a look for you and turned up two dealers in Germany. The fact that the pistol shows on their websites is, as you know, no guarantee that they actually have it in stock.

So, here we go (I would NOT recommend Frankonia - but I've included them to give you an idea):

Yikes $884 to $982 PLUS all the other 'add on' fees. Looks like that's gonna exceed my 'beer' budget.

I think I'll be writing a letter to Santa Claus....send it via Fedex 'over night delivery'.
