What is it you like more about the P99? The DA/SA-ish trigger system?Thanks for that info.
Pretty undeniable that the Glock parts availability is superior. The ability to walk into virtually every gun store in existence and purchase replacement parts is a big plus. Top tier reliability, too. None of that is enough to get me to carry a Glock but I see why they appeal to folks. My G17 clone has done right by me (and it isn't even true Glock Perfection, frame/slide/barrel are aftermarket).
Walther got it right with the P99. The PPQ and PDP both fail to inspire the same sort of enthusiasm from me.
probably gonna throw it up on the forums for 620$ considering it comes with AmeriGlo suppressor heights and the plate rmr plate already with it.Great.....I figured he'd be able to take care of you.
Hmmmmm, let's see....I'm trying to remember....I think my last offer for that old broken down, used PDP was $255.01. 😂 Once again, I can't remember....but if the PDP is a FS, I'd be able to make a spacer and use that mag in all my PPQ M2's. With that said, I'd up my offer to $256.
lowest I've seen them for is 599.99 and thats without the 60$ pair of sights, my price is more than fair considering I would be covering shipping.So the new user has a "bad" PDP and now doesn't trust the platform but will conveniently sell it here for more than one would pay in-store for the same gun.
Seriously, the broken striker sucks but I can tell you that it has happened to Glocks since day 1 and dry-firing is going to wear the part a LOT faster,
Well I suppose that is a fair price shipped so I take that back. I didn't mean to sound condescending but I really wouldn't be so quick to write off the PDP. That being said, best of luck and I hope the Glock works out better for you.lowest I've seen them for is 599.99 and thats without the 60$ pair of sights, my price is more than fair considering I would be covering shipping.

Good luck with the sale. $599.99 for a brand new one vs. $620 for a used one that the original purchaser is dumping after a very short time seems optimistic to me, even accounting for the aftermarket sights. Then again, I've always been surprised what some people will pay for a used gun. At least the Walther warranty isn't limited to the original purchaser, like some manufacturers do (at least in writing).probably gonna throw it up on the forums for 620$ considering it comes with AmeriGlo suppressor heights and the plate rmr plate already with it.
Dry firing is not a great idea. Use dummy rounds to ease the stress. Not really fair calling it a POS when you dry fired it breaking the striker.Finally got 500 rounds of 9mm and upon getting to the range found out my striker had broken sometime in between me zeroing the gun a month ago and my dry fire practice up until this point. I've potentially been carrying around a dead gun for up to a month. Check your strikers boys. Come Monday I'm calling Walther, getting a new striker and then dumping this POS, Should've bought a Glock from the start. View attachment 98082
Great post, with real data! Besides the Glock striker issue, have fun replacing several Glock parts just to make it comparable to a PDP (trigger, etc....).
Exactly! Has anyone ever bought a car that didn't require maintenance or new parts????There seems to be a trend in folks getting upset over mechanical failures and wishing they bought a Glock. The best gun parts fail eventually, and sometimes new parts slip by quality control. Glocks parts fail too. It happens. We routinely blew up high quality and well made pistols, shotguns, and rifles in the military shooting tens of thousands of rounds in advanced small arms certs. I now look at guns like they're disposable. I buy one, break it down and clean it, lube it liberally, and do a function check. I bore laser the irons and optics and read the manual always. I then break it in per manufacturers instructions and when I feel I am proficient in it, I carry it. I maintain and do periodic function checks for debris, lint etc. and re lube as needed. Conventional recoil springs only last several thousand rounds and need to be replaced. A lot of stuff can break in a lifespan and need replacement: but most pistols even modern polymer pistols will last a long time before the barrel needs replacement.
