I was having problems with my P99 .40 and the rounds not fully seating. Things got better after firing about 300 rounds.
I then bought Remington Rem Oil with Teflon and lubed the P99 with it. I fired almost perfect today only 3 rounds at 3 differnent times that needed a little forward assist to fully seat. All other Magazines with 9 or 10 rounds fired perfect.
I was using some reloads.
I am still amazed at how accurate this Pistol is at 60 feet.

My guess, is that the reloads were the problem, not the pistol.
Try some good factory ammo.

I think (and hope) you are right. I love this Pistol but it discourages me because my little Beretta 32 cal TomCat has never malfunctioned but my beautiful Hand Cannon P99 has had some problems with rounds not seating fully. I can say that it has gotten better and better. I have been too cheap so far to run a magazine full of Hydra Shoks. (what I carry for self defense) Maybe I should fire some good hollow points and Hydra Shoks just to see how it goes. It did fire perfect with Winchester target ammo just the other day.

I have well over 7000 rounds thru my P99 9mm with zero malfunctions of any kind. But I only shoot factory new ammunition.

Thanks for the info NMP99 I am going to fire one more brand of target ammo. Maybe American Eagle jus to see how it fires with that ammo. My P99 is a newer one that is is built in Germany and at the S&W plant. (the Walther and P99 is done in gold laser print not the indented/stamped method that the P99s that were made in only Germany were).

Does it have the proof marks "eagle over N" on the barrel and the slide?  If it does then it's all German made, only imported by S&W.  My P99 is somewhat new and has both the P99 and Walther laser etched but it also has the proof marks- made in Germany.

I just purchased my second P99 which is newer than the first.  The Walther is laser etched while the P99 is roll stamped.  It's got all the German proof marks too. Interesting on the diffeent roll/ etch markings. Seems almost random.

I also lube with Rem-Oil, but don't use too much oil, because it attracts dirt and gunk.
I've found that about 3-5 drops is all thats needed on the P99s.

My P99 does not have those 2 German markings. I saw those on some other guns. Mine sais "Made in Germany" on the right Polymer (green) side just in front of the release (to take the pistol apart). On the metal slide (right side an inch behind the muzzel it sais WALTHER USA LLC SPRINGFIELD MA.

   I'm one happy little P99 Boy today.   My brand new P99 had some round seating problems in the past but after firing about 700 rounds it now fires perfect.  I fired 100 reloads today perfect and then 50 American Eagle rounds perfect.  It was simply a break in period.  Boy is that Baby accurate at 60 feet.  Wow! I will take some credit for practicing but we all know you can't help wanting to fire a Walther P99.

Yea, had a great time cleaning MY BABY after a good day at the range and then putting the oil to it. It is ready for anything now.
