[b said:Quote[/b] ]If the slide, barrel, and frame are lacking the "eagle over N" proof mark, that's the first indication that it is made by Smith & Wesson. The frame was still made in Germany by Walther, but the slide and barrel are made by Smith & Wesson. Only some .40 Auto P99s were made by Smith & Wesson. All 9mm ones are 100% German-made. Another indication is if the second digit of its serial number is 6 (meaning that the serial number follows the pattern "46xxxx").
Maybe he is still bitter about being dropped as the US importer? Maybe he can't get .40's with any regularity and that's why they aren't on his site? Maybe he invented this story to try and steer people away from the .40 and buy a 9mm from him instead? Devil's advocate here....[b said:Quote[/b] ]If the truth is being stretched, I'd sure like to know why. I don't know what Earl would have to gain by lying since he doesn't regularly sell the .40 P99.
