Can anyone tell me the best electronic sights that can be put on my rails for the p99 .40?
Also how can you tell how if you have an all German model ?

The easiest way to tell if your P.99 is all german is the proof marks. This will be an Eagle/N on the slide, barrel and the frame. This is the firing test proof done at the Ulm Proof House. In addition, the Ulm Proof is a Antler (does not really look much like an antler, but it is), and will be located on the frame near the Proof Mark.

I have the German pistol and it is perfect; I don't know about the SW99 as to quality of fit and finish. I would like to know about what would be the recommended electronic sights for the pistol. I have a Red Dot on my P.22 and it is nice.

A little confused...my P99 has "Made in Germany" on the side, so I guess it is such, but it also has Smith and Wesson. Are some that say S&W made in USA? When did they start putting S&W on the side for those still built in Germany. Is there a difference in these 3 possible variations of the gun? The reason I chose this gun is for all the reasons already mentioned, but the one I tried also had a hammer that I liked, mine does not have one. Thanks.

Bruz,

There were around 3 to 4000 .40 caliber P99's with the slide and barrel made by S&W. The best way to tell is if the sldie and barrel are missing the Eagle over N mark, then they are S&W made. If you have S&W on the slide it may only mean that they are the Importer, not necessarily the maker. S&W took over importing Walther P99's, P22's and such a little over a year ago.

By the way was the P99 with a hammer on it actually a P22? I've never seen a P99 with a hammer.

I also have one of the Walther, German made P.22 pistols that have the German proofs, and the the Smith & Wesson name stamped on the slide. This is showing S&W as the importer/distributor. The real key is as P88 stated, "is if the slide and barrel are missing the Eagle over N mark". The E/N proofs determine S&W or al Walther made.

Cool, got the eagle! So I do not have a SWalther after all! Good to know. The First Walther I shot looks just like this one except for the hammer...is that what seperates them or is there something else as well? Thanks!

Well, the difference is of course the model. The P5 has some similar "lines" that the P99 does. Especially in the slide area. The P99 is the only polymer gun that Walther makes. You can go to Walther's web site www.carlwalther.de and check out all the different models that Walther currently makes. Or do a search for Walther handgun on the web.

glad to know I have an all german handgun, I thought my gun broker was giving me the shaft. But what about electronics for the rails?
Thanks everyone for the input!!
