I have an AS P99. How is the QA trigger different? Does it feel like the AS when cocked?
It seems a lot of people like the AS more, why is that?
I do like the hammer drop and longer, heavier DA trigger pull for safety reasons.
And, the AS type are now available again? Are they all the new style frame?
Sorry for all the questions.

QA is more like a Glock

The AS is as you know, one of the only double action striker fired pistols with second strike ability.

Check out this FAQ.

You can also check out the QA brochure here:

QA has a more consistent pull to it. As madecov said, much more Glock-like.

Also, here is a nice article about the new trigger system.

"The pistol P99 QA is a P99 with a new quick action trigger. This trigger system required by some law enforcement agencies ensures constant trigger performance from the first to the last shot. The P99 QA is ready to fire immediately after retraction of the slide although four
independently operating safeties guarentee maximum safety for the user.

With the QA-trigger, the striker is in a precocked position (approx. 0,24”), and further pulling of the trigger results in additional cocking of approx. 1/8” before discharge.
Trigger travel is approx. 0,24” with trigger pull of approx. 6.5 lbs.
The P99 QA features a specially designed smaller decocking lever ensuring safe decocking for disassembly or safe storage. In order to prevent an unintentional decocking the decocking lever operates only by using auxiliary material like a ballpen or a handcuff key, for example.
Otherwise, the P99 QA features all the advantages of the standard P99."
