Has anyone heard if Walther has decided to make a Compact version of the P99...I know that S&W is already in production.

I picked one up at the gun store and was overjoyed, it was a 40 and I want the 9mm, but it was better than the glock 26, IMHO. I haven't shot one yet, but soon.

My one and only encounter with the SW99 Compact was in .40 at Galyan's. If memory serves me correct it listed for $465. The trigger was very gritty. Comparing it to my Glock 26 is tough without actually getting on a range. I hope to get to a gun show this weekend and really do a better comparison holding both side-by-side and dry-firing. I would love to have a compact companion to my P99 instead of trading it in for a G19 to go with the 26. Or - maybe I'll get them all.

I am holding out for a genuine Walther P99. If Carl Walther follows the pattern for its last two pistol designs, specifically the P5 and P88, there will be a Compact. The P5 Compact and P88 Compact exist. The fact that the SW99 Compact exists is further strong evidence, because its frame is manufactured by Carl Walther.

They can put an "eagle over 'N'" on it, but it will still look homely, to me.



Analogy:
You can put earrings on Janet Reno, but...
