Yes - it uses the exact same sights. I prev had a SW99, and they have the same sights and you can use the same recoil spring.Do the P99 and SW99 use the same sights? In other words, will night sights for a P99 fit on an SW99?
What night sights are guys using?
Neither one is a "coating" but different trade names for the same basic chemisty embedded into the base metal. Tennifer/Melonite are NOT finishes or coatings yet you read they are all the time in the gun forums. You can completely strip the blackened finish off the gun and the Tennifer/Melonite remain in the base metal and it extends fairly deep. The primary advantage of Tennifer/Melonite is that it does a good job of preventing rust and adds hardness to the metal. It is the exterior blackened finish - could be a spray on paint, Teflon based whatever that determines lustre, color, and degree of wearability.SW99 has a blackened stainless slide with Melonite coating.
P99 has a carbon steel slide with Tennifer coating.
I don't know about the formula of the steel (though German specs ARE different from U.S.), but one thing is sure: the accuracy of its machining and heat treatment was inspected by Teutonic technicians, not by bucolic drones whose previous employment was pulling tits on a dairy farm.Yah, und der German P99s are made with superior German steel forged in the flames of Valhalla!
Yes, I know that but it is much easier to call it a "coating" than to write a paragraph explaining why it isn't a coating, but a treatment.Neither one is a "coating" but different trade names for the same basic chemisty embedded into the base metal.
