Just means that it was imported by Smith and Wesson. If your slide has the whatchamacallit over N on the barrel and slide it was made in Germany.

Although I have a 9mm P99, this has always bothered me;

Please read this

The serial number of my P99 is 068XXX, and so the second digit is a 6. Does the serial number have to have 46XXXX in order for this to apply, or can it be X6XXXX? I would really like somebody to shed some light on this. I am starting to doubt the location of manufacture of my weapon because of the link to the post about S&W forging the proof marks. I hope it hasn't spread to 9mm versions.

The serial numbers that start with a 4 designate that the gun is .40 caliber. Although very rare, there are a few .40's that don't start with a 4.

P88,
Thanks for the reply - I did not know that about the serial numbers.
With that in mind, is it even remotely possible that S&W manufactured my slide and barrel?
