Greetings, all. I am a new poster to the site/long time P99 fan. I am considering the purchase of a new one, specifically the Quick Action or "QA" model. I am looking for feedback.
The only thing I do not like on the P99 is the trigger. The first DA pull is really long and really tight...hey that sounded dirty...anyway, the trigger reset is fantastic..somewhere between a 1911 and a Glock. I am searching for the perfect combo of a fairly short and very smooth DA first shot and rapid trigger reset for the follow up shots. I think the QA may be the ticket. I understand the first shot will be more "Glock like" yet the reset and thus, second shot may suffer in the sense of requiring a huge distance to reset. Any insight would be appreciated.

Personally, I love all the P99 calibers, versions and finishes but I carry and prefer the QA Quick Action model. You will find just as many people who don't like it,including some very knowledgable and excellent shooters but it works best for me , in a carry and defensive role. It operates like an improved Glock and offers the option to carry it chambered but not cocked, if someone so desired. It eliminates that long but smooth double action pull of the standard model. I find that the QA model gives a short smooth and constant trigger pull that is perfect for the kind of pistol that is. I like the double action P99's just fine, but I am glad they offered the QA model that I prefer. Try one first if you can, but it sounds like it would work well for you.
If I want super accuracy and a really nice trigger, I will just pull out my Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special. Its great to have such choices.

Agree with what Val said. I had the QA long before I tried the standard model, still find that QA suits me better. If Walther comes up with a version with an inch shorter in both slide and grip, that would be a nice all year round concealed carry.
