I did it, been watching a decently-priced, boxed 3rd variation P99 AS for two months on a website. The seller doesn't ship, so I guess it didn't move fast.
So today my wife and I decided to run down to the other side of town where our son started a new job a couple months ago, just to check it out. The seller's pawn shop was just 10 minutes away, so why not drop over to check it out, right? At least that's what I told my wife. 馃檮 Once there, the 99 was still there, looks in excellent condition with all the box materials and paperwork. It's an all-black one and looks great. Got it for $595 OTD with a used Fobus holster. Not too bad! Pics later. You guys and your 99's!!!! Oh boy. :unsure:

Thanks everyone! My first and I can't wait to get it to the range, maybe this week. Just now noticed the rear strap is a softer plastic, almost a hard rubber. That's a nice touch! Still not too grippy, but they tried. I am correct on the '21 date?

Blessings!!!

Just returned from the range and had a great time with the new '99. No problems (of course) and very accurate. I prefer the trigger on the CCP for CCW, but I still like the '99. I found a set of the factory metal sights I'll be swapping out for the plastic ones. If I wanted to put more money into it, I'd think about a stainless guide rod to help with the recoil a little. With the high bore axis and my small hands, there's a good muzzle lift. Not bad, but a litle more weight up front could help.
Later!

I have a rather old p99 and the rubber backstrap has somewhat shrunken. Also a little tacky. Some people end up with similar issues but it usually doesnt happen for a couple decades. Might want to pick up an extra or two. I currently have a backstrap on it that goes with my mr9 eagle. I probably have the small on my mr9 and the medium on the p99. The fit is good, a bit more grippy, in fact it also kinda matches the front strap of the grip.

That pistol wasn't shot much if any judging by the lack of wear where I would expect to see some. I doubt it was holstered much either. You don't find deals like this local to me. If I saw one available in this condition for that price, I would have purchased it as well.
I almost bought a P99 that looked like it had been thru the war when I bought my Creed instead. They were asking $550 and the Creed was $250. Creed was like new. Someday I might spring for a P99 but it has to be either in excellent condition or real cheap.

Dave,
You are correct, the CB designates 2021. The DE designates being manufactured in Germany.
