I am either going to buy a 99 or 990 whats the major advantages to each version? Are there any things I need to look for? I have found a 990 with the silver slide for $500 used, but it has about 7-8 flecks of rust on the slide, (from the guys not wiping it down after being handled, i think) is this a good deal or a rip off? thanks for all the info.

P99's usually go for less than $500 NIB around here.
A P99 Titanium or QPC, are usually around $525 NIB.
P990's are about the same price ($525 or so).
I'd stick with the standard DA/SA P99, the P990 just has too heavy of a trigger for me.

Most folks don't care for DAO pistols. The additional trigger pull on every round makes them harder to be accurate with for many shooters. I personally would stick with the standard version.

As to price, I bought a NIB Titanium 9mm last week from my local dealer for $509.00. I think that's about right. He has a blued 40 CAL for $499.00.

If you buy a 40, make sure it has all the German proof marks on it & the Walther test target. I hear there are some out there which have a slide made by S & W. I do not know how this effects the reliability of the gun, probably not at all, but it will definately effect the value. The 40 I saw was all German made.

Congrats on your P99 9mm Titanium model. We seem to be in the minority in the appeal of that particular model


I like mine and use it for my Steel Plate matches at the Dallas Pistol Club.

Regards,
James

extremist, Well I bought the gun because I wanted a 9mm & that's the only one I have seen locally for quite some time. I would have gotten a blued model if they had one. Now that I have it, I am starting to like the look. It shoots like a dream. I have several HKs & Sigs. This pistol ranks right up there with any of them. I have been considering making it my CCW.
