Hello all - I recently acquired a P99 - Interarms (with all the German markings), 40 cal, serial number 4024XX. It has what I think is the AS trigger and has become one of my favorite pistols. I've been told that a 40 is "pretty unusual" configuration for the German made P99. It is not something that I would sell, but I am curious as to it's uniqueness. Can anyone help? Thanks

Almost all 40SW P99 were made in Germany. Only a very small number of them were made in the US by Smith & Wesson. To be honest, I have only ever seen one of these US made 40SW and it was on this forum a month or so back.

It is more unusual to aquire a US made 40SW P99 than a 100% German made.

I agree with Jenglish
I have heard 5000 had their slide and barrel made by S&W.... but I am not 100% about that info

Is It one of 5000 Made By S&W

I read on another site it was around 5000 P99 .40 made by S&W. I believe the p99 .40 cal that I own might be one of them, but not sure. SN number 4610XX. 46 is what the 5000 SN numbers start with. I have no eagle over the N profmark, it is Laser etched not engraved. Right side of slide is marked with the importer being Walter USA LLC, Sprigfield, Ma. Also on the middle of the right side of the slide it says Walther .40 S&W, It was made in 2001. With all this info, I still dont know. Anyone have any input?

Are all of the following proofs missing from you P99?

From what I have read about the US made P99s they: have laser etched markings, have a 6 in the second position of the serial #, lack the German proof marks, and are in .40 caliber.

The description of yours is identical to mine.
