Internals of the frame and trigger pulls. Notice the difference in parts at the back of the frame.

Notice the S&W has a much longer pull to completion.

Internals of the slides appear to be the same. I can swap them out without any noticeable difference in the trigger pulls. The issue seems to be in the trigger and frame itself. The S&W frame is just a little bit thicker in the grip. If I could throw the Walther USA LLC parts into the S&W frame it WOULD be the perfect gun for me in function and grip.

Your first variation P99 was manufactured in Germany. That is, unless the proof marks were forged by S&W.

I have no doubt that the first was made in Germany. The craftsmanship and feel of the trigger is superb. From my research, it is a 1999 or 2000 model.

I guess I answered my own question last night when I picked up a S&W P99CQA in 9mm. The tiger pull is the same as my S&W .40 (although slightly smoother).

I would only call the earlier generations of the P99QA true QA trigger systems that live up to the description of what walther advertises with a short half trigger pull with fast reset. Those made and marked by S&W have a hard, nearly full trigger pull, that I'm my opinion, should all be labeled DAO instead of QA...

Sure would be nice if someone made a straight drop, flat faced trigger for the 99c AS. That long DA pull with that curved trigger is a too long reach for me and my finger tip is pinched during pull. About 4 DA practice pulls is enough. Can't really get accustomed to it. The SA and reset are great. Quick

P99c AS vs creed

My LGS has the p99c AS for about $380.

Worth it?

I have 2 Creeds. How does it compare?

Thx.

They don't compare.

The Creed is an entry level bottom feeder. The P99 is the Flagship of the current Walther line.

At that price it is a steal.

That doesn't mean the Creed/PPX is a POS though. It's not.

It's like comparing an F150 to a Ford GT. They have different purposes.

I would damn sure hesitate to call the Creed/PPX a bottom feeder. Now, highpoint just may match that description...or jennings. ;):D

All fair points sir. And I have to agree. There are far, far, worse choices than the Creed. I guess my fangs were out last night because of posts on another forum... :eek:
