Some forums indicate P99 2005/AF has longer magazine release. Is this a cosmetic change or it really makes a difference? Does anybody have pictures of the 2005 model showing the new release?

Was something else changed in 2005 models?

Noj - Cool gun, thanks for the pictures!

Did you find the new version more convenient than pre-2005 versions (with the short mag release)? I mean, is the difference really significant on practice? Can the release be reached/operated by thumb (assuming average hand)? Or it's designed to be pushed by index finger?

Is there anything else new you've noted in the 2005 version?

I usually release it with my index or middle finger. I can't reach it with the thumb on my trigger hand. I'm sure if I was speed shooting I'd hit it with the thumb on my non trigger hand. I'm sitting here doing it and it seems to work okay. But I am still learning to shoot (this is my first gun - is even the first gun I've ever shot) so I usually just release it with either of the aforementioned fingers. When I was looking at these guns, I handled a pre-05 at a pawn shop and it had the short release, this one seems more comfortable, easier to hit. I also prefer it to the release on my roommates XD.

Thanks guys!

Just struck me Walther had come up with yet another version of this fine pistol.
That latch looks perfect to me; no snag + ease of operation.

Now all I gotta do is save some money to get one...

It does not have ambi slide release, I wish it did - since I shoot left handed. That - and the short accesory rail - are about the only thing's I don't like about the gun. I like the Streamlight M6 but alas can't put it on.
