I just put money down on a LNIB or NIB year 2000 commerative P99

It comes in a nice lookingplastic case has a bunch of papers, manual, target, and a video.

It has two 10 round mags.

It price was 450 + tax.

Did I do OK.

It had the flat trigger guard.

Let me describe the trigger pull. It seems like it is a DA/SA but I am not sure Maybe it is AS.

With the striker down it is a smooth pull requiring about 7 pounds of force.

Subsequnet trigger pulls have all most no force requred to pull the trigger the first 1/2 inch then it stacks and breaks about about 4.5 pounds.

However in SA mode if you stop the pull it sets the trigger in a reward postion.

Is this a AS trigger system?

I feel confused because if it was made in 2000 it seems like it should have the scalloped trigger guard.

Oh well

The AS trigger is the only DA/SA trigger offered on the P99. I believe they also offer the QA (Glock-like: lighter than DAO but same on all shots) and DAO.

Seems like a good price for a P99. I thought the trigger guard changed in 2004 also. Which rail does it have?

All of the year 2000 commemorative P99's are AS models. The price you paid is quite good. I don't quite understand what you mentioned about the trigger guard being smooth. Your pistol should have a 'hump' inside the trigger guard.

Yes, that is a very good price - someone was selling one recently for $1000 (not sure if he actually got that much - that was his starting price)

your P99/y2k should have the hump in the triggerguard and closed rails.
The trigger should be DA/SA or as they are now called "AS". The "AS" is DA/SA too just with a fany name.
The way the triger should work.
DA "long heavy" pull to cock the striker.....
SA "short" reset with lighter pull
when you load your P99, it should be cocked and the trigger should be in the forward position. Now when you pull the trigger there should be no resistance till you get to the SA point.. then it should require the same amount in weight and length as the previous SA mode.
Sawbones over at the PCT shot mine on Saturday... if you want somebody who shoots the P7 to compare it to.
As to the triggerguard..... if it does not have the hump I would inspect the P99 closely. Either somebody changed the frame or removed the hump inside the triggerguard.....

Does the case look like the one in the pic???
If so you got it for a very good price......
Did you try to dry fire it ?? Just curious since you were not too happy with your P88 trigger...

It comes with the brown faux leather case with the brief case locks.

THe tirgger is fine. I think the problem I had with teh the P88 trigger is that I was expecting something else. It really is fine.
