That was my thought as well... My 2nd thought was "will this fit on a 4inch P99" even though it has no decocker.

It's a good idea, but that's a pretty hefty price. That being said, I'd love to see a 4 inch upper as well so I can convert my 5" to a 4" for something more concealable..

As long as you live in a free state, it's literally cheaper to buy a complete gun.

You would have to be willing to shell out 2-3x the free state price for a PPQ first before even considering this upper assembly. The handgun roster is a de facto handgun ban aimed to deter the common man from purchasing a pistol.

This conversion caught my eye. Sig does the same thing for around the same price with a Romeo 1. I wanted a red dot for my 226 Legion but didn’t want to have the slide milled or spend $1,100 on a 229. So I bought it. I thought it was way too much, but really wanted a dot for my 226. It’s great to change slides in under a minute. Color matches, fits, easy to swap and they throw in a mag. But you can buy another gun for the money.

Got excited when I saw Walther doing the same thing. Got my PPQ right before they issued the Q4 Tac. Only paid $300 for the PPQ, so in this case I think I would opt for another Walther. Maybe a used Q5?

Looks like the price is 599 and I saw some 3rd party retailers list for 550,unless you have a need for a second slide definitely seems steep. 400 seems to be a decent price thet perhaps people would jump at but considering it includes a barrel and 100+ dollar set of iron sights doesn't seem unreasonable to me. If you're one of the "canik is just as good" people, just buy a canik and don't ***** about the Walther costing more

I got similar VP9 kit for $350 couple of month ago and it is great, $600 for PPQ is quiet a lot. I would wait until Christmas to see if any discount and get it as well.

I agree that it wouldn’t make sense for a person in California who would also need to purchase a private party transferred PPQ (at 2-3x the free state new retail price) before - might as well just start with a Q5 Match if that’s the desire.

However, as someone who purchased a PPQ before the single shot exemption was eliminated, this looks like pretty appealing, even at this price. I’m kind of getting a new gun with a slide and barrel length that was pretty much inaccessible to me before because of the BS roster. I can punch in my address and credit card, and I can have an optics-ready long slide pistol in my hands before the weekend. I know this mentality sounds absolutely insane for those of you living in the United States of America, but this is what we’ve been reduced to here in the Democratic People’s Republic.

Yeah, I'll pass. Already have a 5" I can get milled for a lot less.

Bought a Ported CORE slide kit for my M&P for $350 including the barrel. I topped with an RMR.

The SIG 320 Slides with Romeo 1 are running less than $350. I may get one of these for my compact.

And I too am in California and bought them during SSE.
