Great picture. How do those variations relate to dates/importers?I still like to believe there are 3 generations but I can see why others would disagree.
Gen I is the original frame/slide
Gen II is the updated frame/slide that maintains the short mag release
Gen III is the updated frame/slide with the long mag release and ambi/extended slide release.
Left to right in this picture, ignore the extra barrel sticking out
Gen 1 = 2003Great picture. How do those variations relate to dates/importers?
That's the difference between the .40 and the 9mm. The 9mm has the more complex front on the slide. See http://www.gunfaqs.org/P99FAQ/I/1.htmlAwesome, this information is great. However, I (being the guy that I am) have to throw a wrench in the gears.
So, my AS is a Walther P99, not a SW99. The extra machine clearencing on the slide (like all the AS models) is not there....
Here's what I am talking about..
This is my model
Here is another 3g P99 with the relieved end of the slide
Am I missing something here?
