Just picked up a P99, slightly used, in great shape from the looks of it. Headed to the range tomorrow. The frame is OD (I think), feels nice in the hand. Looking forward to giving it a shot. It's DA/SA, which I think is the AS model... will give y'all a range report.

This is my first Walther, but others include Glock 34 & 27, SIG P229, S&W 41.

Night site recommendation? I'm partial to MeProLights.

Yes, it is the A/S - congrats.

J ENglish informed me that the night sights are a bit taller than the stock sights. So, it actually changes your point of impact a little bit. I like the stock sights so much and the way they work that I've decided not to mess w/ them.

Tnx. I have Meps on the SIG, TruGlo on the G34. I find the TruGlos a bit more difficult to see during the day. They're green and I'm colorblind, not a great combination.

Like the factory sights just fine but something like 70% of defensive shootings happen in low light... so night sights for me.

I've had great luck with "PT" sites that have the WHITE RING around the actual glass tube. Makes seeing in daylight way easy.

Tom, thanks for the tip on the Meps... it's the white rings that work so well for me. Can't see colors worth a damn. Can't see the target all that well either, but it's a lot bigger! Maybe I should reconsider lasix!
