That mag release was used up till the end of 2004.....
the 2004 P99 run is the only one with the short mag release and the open rail.....
all models before 2004 have the same mag release (short) but the closed rail...

so yes it's just a older version of your new P99

Mos people like the shorter one for visual aspects. But after using the longer one a while, it is much more convenient.
I would agree. All my 99's have the short mag release...they look good and they all match each other...but I have fondled the newer versions with long release and it is much easier to manipulate...and I noticed that the New PPS also sports the long mag release....

If it is "new" it will also have the long release......
I have seen pics of the P99c with the long release.... again anything after 2004 (AF datecode and later) had the long release.....
