That's the word that Dr Lunde brought back from Shot Show. Earl's will import them...but you know what that means for prices (I'm guessing $1000). But Walther America (a.k.a. Smith & Wesson) is supposed to be importing only QA models starting this year. It hasn't happened yet...DTQ found some AF ('05) model 99 AS 9mm in New Mexico. But they're pretty rare and even the AE ('04) models are getting hard to come by. If you want one (and don't want to pay Earl's overhead) I'd recommend you grab one when you see it.
