Goodmorning everyone!

I just bought this fantastic P99 James Bond limited edition for € 750.00.
I would like an opinion from you experts to have as much information as possible based on the photos you will see.
The gun fired two boxes of cartridges.
What do you think about?

Thank you so much!:)

Great collectors item. I would carefully box it up and hang on to it if I had one.

The .40 is not as desirable as the 9mm, and fewer of them were imported by Earl's Repair Service into the USA for sure.

But still, a nice collectible simply for the fact they were never really "released" for sale to the public.

Should not therefore be more rare than a 9 mm? Why they were never really "released" for sale to the public?

Some were released for commercial sale. Further release of the pistols was ceased due to a license dispute between United Artists and Walther.

I understand, so the .40 S&W caliber should be more rare, or am I wrong?

Based on the 4th photo, I'd guess that the CAT number is missing a 7. <img src="http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" />
Wow yes! How did you do? Explain me please!😱😱😱

The CAT number is an Italian thing. There is a list of all the approved firearms which is called "Catalogo nazionale delle armi" (national firearms catalogue). So every P99 in .40 S&W shows the same number.

Ah, ora ho anche notato che vivi in Italia. Allora non devo spiegare nient'altro naturalmente. Poi mi limiterò a dire al mio vicino del sud un benvenuto cordiale in questo forum piacevole.

Not so much more rare, just less desirable.

Still, it's a neat pistol, I don't know the exchange rate between your currency and mine, but I've heard of those being offered for sale for 1500.00 USA dollars....

In USD dollar I pay my P99 007 limited edition $ 870,00,
I think it's a good deal then!
Why caliber 9x21 is most desirable?
Moreover, only on the caliber .40 S&W is written: "one of one thousand"!

The limited "James Bond" editions exist in 9mm Luger (9x19mm) and .40 S&W only.

Most if not all the P99 models in 9x21mm were made mainly for the Italian market and are more or less unknown in the United States. For this reason the forum member Extremist and Thunderbirdsport302 are rather reporting about the comparison .40 S&W to 9mm Luger.

I thought it was a .25 originally, then .32ACP

You are behind the times :)


Tomorrow Never Dies introduced Bond/Brosnon to the Walther P99 in 9mm :)


But then they reverted to the PPK in the Craig era.


Who knows what the next Female James Bond is going to use. :mad:

The first James Bond movie portrayed the Walther PP in 32 acp caliber.
Later on,,, it became a 380 acp caliber.

Also, the designation PP stands for Policia Pistole.A uniformed police officer,and the pistol is larger, for holster carry.
The PPK came later and stands for Policia Pistole, and the "K" designation means it is a little smaller and stands for Kriminal, or in English,a Detective plain clothes.
