Is the P99 still being produced? A guy at a gun shop today told me they were not. They sure are hard to find right now.

Same as the last few years: Walther makes a batch, sends it over, and it sells. Then a few months/years of drought and you'll have to wait until Walther sends over the next batch. So that's where you are: wait! This year's batch came over in early January, and was snapped all up and every place that had them is out of stock.

Until Walther makes a statement that the P99 has been discontinued, I'll find it hard to believe that the P99 is discontinued.

I've heard "P99 discontinued" too many times since I bought my first one. I mean it is to the point where if I said I heard it a hundred times over the years, it would probably be an understatement.

The P99 is still being used as a contract pistol by agencies all over the world. I'd assume that production will not stop until nobody uses it anymore.

The short answer is no.

The long answer is hell no.

Expect an M2 version within a year, maybe less.

And it's gonna look like a PPQ. :rolleyes:



(Just kidding about the M2 in a year. It's gonna be here in December :D)

(i may or may not be kidding. Only Walther knows, and even that is sometimes sketchy!) ;)

OP - I am seeing a couple of used full size 9mm P99 AS pistols listed on GB right now if that's the variant you're looking for. The starting bids are a bit high but not unreasonable. The .40S&W versions seem to always be around during shortages. The 9mm versions have a tendency to disappear rather quickly. I remember earlier this year when this forum was buzzing with the news that a new batch had come in. People were snagging them up at incredible prices... way less than I paid for mine back in 2016. Be patient and I am sure you will get one!
