Anyone know what the new model P99's will be going for?
I'm debating between a H&K P2000 and a new frame style P99.
I can get a NIB P2000 for $700, what are the new P99's going to run? I've heard of a price increase, up to the $550 to $600 range.
A P2000 will cost $150 to $200 more than a P99. I can't tell you why they cost more...but I think you're paying for the name. That said, its a great firearm. I have not shot one, but I came close to getting one over the P99. It felt good in my hand. As a left handed shooter the fully ambidextrous controls were very attractive, but they weren't worth the extra $150.
When are the new P99s supposed to be coming out? A good place to get a bottom end price is at Gunbroker. Be sure to add shipping and FFL transfer fee (if applicaple) to the final price. Check at gunshows too. When I bought my P99 this past November the best price I saw was $520, highest was $615. I bought it at my local gunshop/range for convenience and customer loyalty for $595.
I guess you've already got a P99, so a P2000 might be a better option. If I was a person without either, I'd go for the P99 because of the better price (and better looks!).
I already have several P99's.
I like the standard light rail on the P2000, and the ergonomics were on par with my P99.
The P2000 feels much more compact than the P99.
I'm guessing it will fall somewhere in between the P99 and the P99 compact in size.
I've been debating on getting a P99 compact, I never really liked my Glock 26 because it was too fat and the P99c will be very similar. My Kahr Mk9 is an excellent deep concealement pistol.
The P2000 would be another option for CCW and home use with a light attached.
I like your thinking; exact same reason I usually don't like compactified service pistols (though I really was looking forward to the P99C until I saw it). Sorry, I didn't catch your mentioning that on your previous post.
Are you considering any other makes besides Walther and HK? Perhaps a Sig P245 or 1911 style compact would better suit a CCW.
I'm not telling you the things that I personally like. I don't like Sigs for instance. But they're just suggestions because I know people that do like Sigs and so they're worth mentioning from that standpoint.
I like the H&Ks and Walthers for one reason, the magazine release paddles.
After using the paddle release extensively now for two years, the buttons just seem awkward.
I sometimes carry my Kahr Mk9 but reloading isn't an issue because I never carry a spare mag for it.
NM .... I heard that the P99c would be available some time in March, guess we can find out more in a few weeks. The price estimates you listed are what I expected except the P2000sk, ouch .... wonder if the prices of these new models will drop after a few months.
The P2000 I found in town is listed as $799 and has been sitting here for about two months. It is slightly smaller than P99 and honestly feel good in hand, but it is wider.
I know that I'll be deciding between P99c and P2000sk, of course price will be a factor. Compared to the standard P99, the P99c doesn't have much saving in overall length, and the grip is a bit too short for me, I hope someday there will be some extension grips like Pearce available.
Just bought an LNIB (<100 rounds) P2000 LEM with all the paperwork and accessories for $685.
The compacts won't be out for a few months anyway, and that'll give me time to re-build my gun fund.
I'll give a range report and P99 comparison next week sometime.
I'm definately going to try and wring out the P2000.
My P99 has treated me too well to dump it for an unproven newcomer.
I should get the P2000 middle to end of next week, along with my wifes new Glock 19.
Should be a fun range day.
