Can't answer the first part, other than to say Tanfoglio has some unique guns.I'm confused..or maybe it's just too early..but why does the full size have a Gen1 slide and a Gen2 frame with the ambi-slide stop?
Yes, I am aware of this. It's also being installed on weapons that are designated "Night Sight Defense Kit", sold here in the US.As for the ambi slide lock it's been available for a long time, found primarily on European guns.
Unfortunately they've been taking my order but they've been telling me it'll be here in 2 weeks, 2 weeks later they tell me it'll be another 2 weeks, so it's either I got somewhere else or I'll have to wait till JanuaryIt's generally easier to purchase a PPQ these days than it is a P99, but the big USA online suppliers have access to them, as a general rule. I'll bet that most P99 purchases are coming in that direction. I got mine at a local gun shop a few years back; walked in and there it was, whispering my name. I've subsequently purchased two more from members here, via our Trading Post section. I'm not sure what the status is in Canada, though. You miht have to get creative. Have you asked your local gun shop crew if they can secure one for you?
I'm glad you brought this up...The mag extension is a piece of plastic, a sleeve, that fits over a longer magazine intended for use in the P99. It increases the capacity of the P99C to 15/16 rounds by allowing you to use the longer magazine. Of course, the P99C will accommodate the long mag without the use of the sleeve, but the sleeve covers the mag's metal shell and makes it look and feel correct.
Thanks...guess there's no point in taking a chance if it fits in a mag pouch anyway...Milspec: I've never tried to shoot one without the sleeve in place, but there's no question that the mag will at least insert into the pistol without one. The sleeves are only $20, so it's no big deal to get one. I carry an extra mag with the sleeve attached in a mag holder when I'm packing the P99C.
It can only damage it if you slam the mag home. That's what using the sleeve prevents.I'm glad you brought this up...
Question: I've read that using 15 round mags in a P99c without the grip adapter will damage the ejector. I'd like to carry one of my P99 mags as a spare. Do I need the adapter or will the mag catch hold it? Thanks.
