I took my new P99 .40SW out for the first time. The first shots were really low and inconsistent at 50'. I change the front sight out to a number three. The smallest sight of the bunch. It was still shooting low. I brought the target in to 30' and took my time and noticed that I was jerking or anticipating the firing pin release.

I shoot must a USP Tactical in IDPA and Plates and I know exactly when the hammer will fall. My muscle memory was working against me. When I really took my time with the P99 it hit dead sent at 30'. So it's me not the pistol. The trigger defiantly takes getting use to.

Then again when I got my first P7M8 I took it to the range and noticed it was shooting 15 FEET to high at 30'. When I pulled back the squeeze cocker I did not realize it was a 1/2 pound trigger and bam it went off. I was shooting high for a while until I got use to it. Know it's my most accurate pistol.

I still like to get a set of adjustable metal sights. I don't like the plastic sights and I hate the plastic recoil rod.

I have to say I love the pistol.

Why the plastic recoil rod?  Is there a benefit to that?

"Jerking and anticipating" the impending recoil is the bane of all shooters.

It can be so slight that you are positive you are not doing it.

I still do it and I am maybe 5000 rounds away from wiping it completely from my memory bank.

But what is up with the plastic recoil rod?

Saving money on Walther's part....or quality, of some kind?

Plastic recoil rod I guess is fine, but I just don't like it. Same with the plastic sights. I will be replacing the sights with night sights and I am on a search for a metal recoil rod now. I know they made some, somebody has to have one.
