Have any of you P99 shooters experienced irritation on your trigger fingers after shooting a large number of rounds?  I noticed when firing my 9mm P99 that my right index finger rubs very slightly on the forward, inner and upper part of the left magazine release lever, which does not sit exactly flush with the inner surface of the trigger guard (it actually protrudes slight above the TG surface).  I'm thinking I'll have a smith take the release off and shave it and smooth it off slightly on it's inner side to alleviate this problem.  Make sense to anyone out there in P99-land??

Yes.

I was experiencing this irritation just yesterday while I was shooting one of my Walther P99s (.40 Auto).  I tried to carefully discern the exact cause of this irritation; my finger is rubbing the same area as you described.  To me, it appears that if the contour of the trigger was changed slightly (not so much of a "hook" at the bottom), I would have a happier trigger finger.

I'll probably just live with it.

I recall the same ailment, but it went away as I shot my pistol more. If you've only been to the range a few times with your P99, I'd recommend giving it a few more trips before you do anything. Just a thought. Happy shooting!

I had the same problem with my P99 9mm. It was actually cutting my trigger finger. I took a file to it which solved the problem. I highly recommend filing it down, it makes it all the more comfortable to shoot.

I solved my "trigger finger rubbing on release lever" problem... I took out the magazine release lever part (thankfully the spring seems not to pop out but remained in place inside the front part of the grip). Then I used an exacto knife blade to carefully shave off the "inner ridge" on the left release lever. You'd never be able to tell unless looking VERY carefully. After the reinstall, problem solved! There's about 1/32" clearance between top of lever and the inside of the trigger guard surface now (lever is lower than guard surface).

Now nothing is holding me back from getting one of these in 40S&W!!
