I have had this nice little pistol for awhile now. I have gotten into more 1911s and bow shooting so I have not shot it much. It comes with 2 x 10 round mags and the original case. This pistol also has extra front sight posts and hand grips to fit your eye and hand size. The rear sight is adjustable. Baby on the way and need to get rid of some of the things of the past! $500.

Sorry I totally missed your post until today when I was going to bump this. It shoots smooth and with the grip change ability you can make it feel good in the hand. The trigger is a little long pull for me, I think I am just used to my Kimber and glocks now, but that can be worked on. And changing a mag is simple because of the lever mechanism and it works from either side, with either handed shooter.

I see it the revised grip, is it the AS, DAO or QA? And it's the 4-1/8" barrel right? The 9mm was the only 4" I thought.
Barrel measures out to 4" exactly. Both the 9mm and the .40 cal came with the 4" barrel. This one is the AS (anti-stress, can be used in single or double action) which is usually stamped on there as the P99AS, but since this on was made before 2004 when there was no designation for the double action trigger, it is not stamped on there.

Also, to add, I know Walther and S&W had an agreement ~2000 to start producing these under S&W, but this one was actually made in Germany and is stamped Walther USA.

Edit: I have to correct myself, the lower stock was made in Germany and the slide was assembled in the US by S&W, but this one still carries the Walther USA stamp on the slide. The newer ones will be stamped S&W USA on the slide. Not really a big deal I guess, but interesting none the less.

I thought I had a pretty clear understanding of the different models and revisions of the P99 and the SW99, but your weapon as you've described it seems to not fit any of those.

From a US made Walther stamped slide, to the non AS stamped slide on a post 04 grip (no hump in the trigger guard).

In any case, unless I find an FFL holder who isn't trying to make new gun sale money on a transfer I'm out. $120+ on top puts it over what I can pick up a new SW99 for sadly.

Good luck with the sale :shake:

Tis not a post 04 grip. Pistol was bought new (by me) in 2001, hence why the slide is not stamped AS and the grip was made in Germany and the slide assembled in the US and Stamped Walther USA instead of S&W USA. Now if I have something messed up in my description, someone can please let me know. I am just going off the research I have done myself. But I know when I bought it and that was 2001. I am not at home right now, but I am pretty sure there is a hump in the trigger guard. I'll check it out for you. PM me if you want to work something.

Edit:
Reference these photos. I have the First Gen AS. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl...ucnmDQ&sa=X&oi=image_result&resnum=4&ct=image

Doh, you're right there is a hump in the trigger guard. The OD color and pattern to the foam made it look flat like the newer frames everytime I looked. Closer inspection shows that I am, in fact, a moron.



It all makes sense now.

My sisters bf works the gun counter at another local store, he said he'd get back to me on the 'special' FFL transfer price after he talked with his manager. We'll see, if it's in the realm of acceptable for some paperwork and to hold a gun for 10 days I'll be in touch for sure.

No problem. I was actually going to take a better picture of the "hump" because I realized the pics are somewhat dark and it was hard to see. :crazy:

OMG at the $120 transfer fee! Most places around here are $15-50. We get ours transferred to a place that charges $15.

Anyways, nice gun and goodluck with the sale.
