Okay I confess that I am a bit of a type "A" personality. I like things to be neat and match when at all possible. This is one reason that I own 3 P99’s all in AS. I like one model, one system. Now I really like my compact but the only thing that ever bugged me about it is its flared trigger guard. Kinda looks like the thing has sort of a pot-belly. And I noticed that the new P99 compact in DAO has, not only and ambi slide release, but also a more squared trigger guard. Now here is the question? I wonder if this is merely a cosmetic change or is there something different in the DAO trigger system that would allow for this in the compact version. If they can do this in one version I can’t imagine why they couldn’t do it in another. And I prefer the squared version over the belly swell...inquiring minds would like to know.
