I had my P99 QA .40 at the range and was doing rapid fire double tap drills. I have put only about 350 rounds through the gun, as I got it new this month. One time the trigger failed to reset. The gun fired normally, but the trigger felt "funny". I was shooting as fast as possible when this happened. A round had been loaded in the chamber as normal, but the trigger was de-cocked and usless. I had to pull the slide back to re-set the striker and set the trigger. Is this a common problem with the QA? Is it caused somehow by short stroking the trigger in rapid fire? Clearly this is a big problem if it is a common thing. Thanks for the input peeps.

What rounds were you shooting? The new ones need a bit of time to break in properly to. Mine got alot smoother after feeding a few hundred rounds through it. I'm probably at the 1000 round mark, and I've only had it 2 1/2 weeks so I'm no expert. But you may want to try out different ammo too.
I was using blazer 165, a rather Hot load. It had plenty of pop to cycle the gun. The next round was loaded properly, but the trigger was not re-set. I have never had a limp wrist problem with any other pistol, so I doubt that.

The decocker on my 04 QA is #### near impossible to press when you want to, so no way hit it when firing. Plus I am left handed, so my right hand was no wear near the decocker.

It ain't you!! It ain't the ammo!!!  It is Walther!!!

I had the same problem last year. I had to send it back twice.
Thanks for the feedback Carlo. It is very worrysome to have a pistol that might fail in this manner. I put another 100 rounds through it today without problems. But knowing you have had the same issue does give me pause. I think I will give 'ol Jeff a call after the holiday and see if he will send me a shipping label. Thanks for the tip.
