Howdy, folks.
I am just wondering if any place still has any P99 AS's left. Specifically, the 9mm, and not the P99c. I have one of each, but it is my favorite choice for carry, and I wanted another one. Too late??? :(
As usual, thank you to any responses.

Walther seems to produce/import the P99 (other guns as well) in batches. For instance, the PPQ M2 5" 22 has been unavailable for months. I did a search last night and they're available again.

Hang in there and check every day or so......one day you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Be patient, grasshopper.

And remember, wax on ................ wax off.

Of course they are - right after I buy a used one after waiting over a year to find one :mad:




Well at least I saved a hundred bucks, I cleaned it last night and I'll try it this afternoon.

Well since it's no longer a matter of competition, you can find a Walther P99 AS in 9MM on gunbroker, I was able to find 2 and went with the $429.99 price tag over the $550 price tag.


Just inspected it today at my FFL and it just needs a little cleaning, will be test firing next week after my waiting period of 8 days is over.



Glad I kept my original gen 1 pistol too, rather just have both gen 1 and 2 as the original does hold a special place in my heart, and I have a "do not buy a gun your going to sell later" philosophy.

Gentleman (and at least one Master/Sensei),
Thank you all for the advice and information. At my request, my favorite local FFL dealer went online the day after I posted this note. And lo and behold, they were available by the dozen on Gunbroker. The thing is, I had checked GunBroker the night I wrote about them. There were NONE. Anywhere. For some unknown reason, there they were. Sorry about extremist with his used gun, I can feel for you. ;)
So now I am patiently waiting for my new one to ship from the deep South.
That is just great! Until next time, y'all.
P.S. Not bragging, but I think I am up to 11 Walthers now. I might be an addict. Hee hee.

The best part about Gunbroker is that a ton of new stuff is added everyday, I checked for a Walther p99 AS 9mm a month ago just randomly and there were none except the .40cal available.


Glad that the topic creator found out as the P99 is still a very popular pistol, cleaned my gen 1 P99 tonight cause it needed some love and it always makes me happy to have a clean well oiled ready to go weapon when I am done.

Good day. I have answered my own question by picking up my brand new P99 yesterday from my local gun shop. This one will stay around, while I plan on using my original one as a carry weapon for a new part-time Court job.
This will be my first official non-Sig Sauer duty pistol, so I will see how it goes.
As usual, thank you to all who participated in this topic.

Congratulations. Best striker pistol I have ever fired. Enjoy.

gun.deals

I went to gun.deals and entered Walther p99 AS 9 mm
and got 11 results varying from 501 to 571.


gun.deals is a good place to look for a particular gun from dealers, not auctions.
Last week on gun.deals I found a Marlin model 1894 in 45 Colt for $499.95 shipped after a coupon code.
I pick it up tomorrow morning.

Bought it to carry, but then decided not to shoot it, so in the clean room, and got a SW99 the next day. Put maybe 15,000rds through it, and only sold it because I was offered cash double what I paid for it. The P99 is #310 of the 2000 Y2Ks. Been tempted to shoot her a few times, but trying to get a sale value for her, before I end up making a carry piece out of her.

Howdy, folks. One more small addition to this story. I shot my "old" P99 officially last week for a job qualification. The bad news is I only shot a 228 score. The good news was it was out of a maximum of 230. That pistol was a blast to shoot, literally and figuratively. I threw one shot into the 3 ring. Oh, well.
But now, thanks to another thread, a P5 seems appropriate for my next one.
Again, thanks to you all.

Cool.

I have had my carry license since 1996. So, I've had to requalify several times. The last time I had to requalify, I used a P99. I got a perfect score with it. The first time I managed a perfect score. Since then, they changed the law, and I no longer have to re-qualify.

When in doubt, get a P5. One of the finest handguns you can have.

Easier said than done what with DUA buying them up.
I know, I’ve taken the extra precaution of adding another layer of security over my three...just in case! :D

They cannot be hard to find. I know of two large distributors who have them in stock from the usual “Christmas shipment.” Have your dealer order one.
