robertsontradingpost is a great company to deal with in my experience. Quick shipping and each purchase has been precisely as described.
MO sent, should be there by Friday, wait for shipping to the FFL for pick up. I sure do hope I like this gun.
Almost all of my triggers are hammer fired so I have a good bit of time with a double/single action trigger with a decock feature.If you don't the resale value is descent. It's my preferred striker-fired weapon. It does take practice because the system is different, but mastery brings great rewards.
When you rack the slide, you cock the striker and place the trigger in AS mode. So, that light take up your talking about is from AS to SA. To put the trigger in DA mode, you'll need to depress the 'de-cocker'.Picked it up today. I am betting it might have had 100 rounds thru it.
The take up on the trigger from double to single is really light, and then it feels like about 5 lb range in single to break point. It feels pretty good. It came with the short mag release, I think I will try the long one. Medium backstrap, I might try a rubber sleeve vs Talon grip, I think the grips feel a bit slick.
The only negative I see so far is that my Olight mini pl light does not fit the notch on the rail. Looks like the trigger guard is too wide.
Well mine has the short installed and the long in the parts bag. I can see that there is a cut out for the long that used to be on there. I don't have pics and I am at work, so they are not forthcoming. I bought used, so the previous owner did something with a swap. Stamped DE BK.But ARP, Walther NEVER offered a P99 with long and short mag release levers. Period! Post a picture of your pistol showing the trigger guard and mag release. Also post a picture showing the serial number and date code.
I'm thinking you have a second generation pistol which has the short mag release. Somewhere along the line, someone whooped out their dremel tool and did a little whacking on the trigger guard to make room for the longer mag release.
I know there's some out there, because I've modified quite a few of my own (not P99's, but SW99's and Magnum Research MR series with short levers). I did do a few P99's for a fellow.
Once again, Walther NEVER offered the P99 with convertible mag release levers.
Here's one of my Magnum Research MR pistols, based on the P99, Walther actually makes/supplies the frame, but with short paddles. I modified the trigger guard and installed long paddles.
Post a picture like the one below. We need to see the info in the red circle. That'll provide the date info we need.
Yep, the previous owner did something. Maybe the pistol came with the long levers and he put the short levers on.....don't ask me why he'd do such a thing.Well mine has the short installed and the long in the parts bag.

NOW THAT IS GOOD NEWS. I only had about 20 minutes to sort thru the purchase and figure out exactly what was not original. I always worry about used guns and people doing "work" on them. I am glad I have the original parts. When I was working the mag release I thought how could this be a good, complete design? Especially with the cut out for the long lever. I got days off this week so I will swap it back to original.Yep, the previous owner did something.

Oh, and BK = 19 or 2019. So, yes you have a current model that came with long levers. Previous owner put shot levers on.
The levers are a piece-o-cake to change. Punch out the pin. The levers are removed thru the magwell. Insert the long levers and reinstall the pin. There's a little spring in there, but it usually stays in place during the swap.
