    1st review

    There is no denying that Glock pistols dominate the polymer pistol market in the U.S.

    The company offers its legions of loyal customers a variety of reliable compact and service size handguns in popular calibers such as the 9mm Parabellum, 40 S&W, and 45

    Ive owned this weapon for about a year and a 1/2 and it one of, if not the best firearm pistol I've owned. I haven't had one jam, misfire or other problem with it. I highly recommend adding this fine piece of equiptment to your collection, either professionally or off-duty.

    I had to choose a weapon when my department made the transition from .38 model 64s to a pistol. After reviewing several option we made the P-990 our choice. (P990 is DAO model) It
    was one of the few at the time with changeable back panels for different size hands. The DAO made it a very simple process to retrain 55 officers.

    Two years ago we went from carrying old ruger gp-100's that our provincail police had given us, when the transitioned to Glock 17's. Then we stwiched to the walther p99 dao, at first i was abit unsure of this pistol as being a good choice to tell you the truth i would have prefered the glock 17. But i was wrong after a week of intensive training with it and the raptor 6070 i fell in love the the walther. I a few weeks i am ordering one for myself for my own use. Over all i really like the ergonomics as well as it accurracy Considering or ministery's standard for qualification is 100% on the target lose one and you lose the certification to carry. I also likehow light it is seeing as how when we carry side arms is when we are transporting prisoners from one place to the other and its lack of weight is nice when you are on your feet for 8 or 10 hours cause you brought someone to the emergency room at the local hospital.

    I have a P99QA and it's one of the best pistols i've ever owned. I prefer it off duty because it's small enough to be easily concealed but large enough that it doens't appear to be a pager. I'm not a huge fan of the "get off me guns". On or off duty I want a weapon that feels and looks like it can do the job. The accuracy considering the semi compact size is great, combined with the interchangable backstraps and great ergonomics. I've never been a glock fan personally (even though they are undeniably one of the best weapons in the world) because of the feel and the fact that the weapon cannot be manually put on safe. I give the P99 5 stars.

    I actually own the P99CQA. I love this gun! The decocker makes it safe enough to carry in your waist band without fear of blowing off other equipment, and compact enough for others not to notice it being there. The 10 round magazine i found lacking, but with the finger grip foreplate made it just like carrying a full-size. the only down fall would be the barrel size. I found that this led to stray shots, either that or I wristed 2 out of five shots. Bought brand new at Williams Gun Sight Co. in Davison, MI for $530. Great deal for a high quality pistol!

    I have shot this gun several times, all total about 100 rounds through it, and the mag has fallen out when I have fired it two times!. Not the kind of reliability I want in a firearm. It fits in the hand nice though.

    I don't know about this firearm but I owned a P22 for plinking (a smaller .22 version) a few years ago and it was the worst gun I have ever fired. Very good looking, but poor functioning. Malfunction after malfunction- defective magazines too. Sent it to Walther's gunsmith and they altered the feeding ramp but the gun still failed to cycle properly. Tried all kinds of ammo- no difference. Sold it off. I have read the same story from hundreds of users on the web. My issue is with a company that would release a weapon that was unreliable across the board...

    I have a P-22 that is the little brother using 22 long rifle, 12 round mags. I just read another person who had a bad experience with his, but I have nothing but praise for mine. No miss feeds , fits in your pocket , easily concealed while wearing t shirt and shorts. small caliber requires that you be a good enough shot to actually hit what you aim at like the eye socket. I have also modified my hollow points so they shatter on impact. Great when you hit someone wearing a vest, the shrapnel gets them in the lower chin area. For under $300.00 you cant go wrong. Mine was made by Smith & Wesson , not by Walther in either California or Germany. Coming from just down the road to S&W 50 miles away in Springfield,Ma. , I can assure you that ANYTHING that goes wrong with any gun they make , they will fix it free of charge for LEOs.

    One of the best and most reliable weapons that I have fired in 15 years. With a low probablity of jamming and a smooth slide action, the P99 is the weapon of the future.

    I have owned and carried as a duty weapon a first generation P99 in 40SW for about six years.
    It has served me well with zero malfunctions through 2000+ rounds and weeks on end of dirty, sweaty concealed carry.
    I am a big fan of the 'second strike' capability of the weapons trigger system and it has proven itself during a live fire exercise.
    Pair it with a FOBUS holster and you can't go wrong.
    The only downside is the mag release can take some getting used to and still requires a slight change in grip with smaller hands. Otherwise it is nearly perfect.

    I carry the P99Q (40 cal). This is a beautiful peace of steel. Intimidating & Sexy, all rolled into 1. I personally have large hands and with the Hogue pistol grips, it fits precisely as if it were custom made. However, the manufactured grips are not bad either. The stopping power is respectable and without calibration or special modification and it is accurate out the box. The guns safety features are above average, as you have a quick reminder (red dot/no red dot striker) that the safety is engaged/disengaged when you draw this weapon. The safety/decocker mechanism is actually on the slide, so you don't have to worry about accidently pressing the traditional safety buttons when you're drawing your weapon.
    The magazine release feature prevents the user from accidently releasing the magazine and is located near the trigger guard. There are other internal/external safety features like like the trigger safety & the striker block safety the are also appreciated.
    Lastly, this firearm has customizable grips, white dotted adjustable front & rear sights, single action firing after the first shot and appears easy to clean.

    It satisfies most of my personal & professional needs and to me is well worth the cost.

    This weapon is the mother of all polomer hand guns. I would say that its better than any Glock. The pistol shoots very accuretly out of the box and has been arround for about ten years, you now see features that are incorprated in the wather p99 that are in many newer model pistols such as the removble backings to fit diffrent shooters coming out, such as the Springfield XDm. And to top it all off this gun was pratically made arround the needs for laenforcment officals...what more could you ask for comming from a gun that hold 12 +1 .40 ammo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have the Walther P99 AS 9mm. It’s a good off duty gun but to be honest it’s not worth $750 I think a fair price would be about $550. I also have shot the XD and think the XD is just as good as the Walther and it’s much cheaper. The Walther is light and very comfortable in my hand and also holds 16 rounds of ammo. I like the decocker because I’m not worried about it going off when I put it in my pants. I wouldn’t mind putting a different set of sights on the gun I have because the rear sight is a little to wide which makes hit harder to shoot longer distances. I love the gun I just think the price is a little to high for a plastic gun. I would compare it to the Glock but I have never owned a Glock and the one Glock I shot I didn’t like.

    I have one of these and it is awsome fun to shoot. I got it for my wife to practice her shooting skills with (she loves it) and I have used it more than she has. My 11 year old is also quite proficient with it as well. It is a great gun to teach self defense shooting to women and kids.

    This is one of the most ergonomic and comfortable pistols I have ever shot. I purchased a P99 about 3 years ago and have loved every shot. It's very accurate and lightweight. I have not had a single jam or misfire and the durability is excellent. I have used it as my ccw for two years and the finish remains nearly unchanged. I wish my agency authorized this weapon because it tops Glocks and XDs in my opinion.

    I don't like the de-cocking machanism, it is awkard and barely functional for me.

    Works well, light weight. Not user friendly in winter with gloves.

    This is just a great firearm. It is a consistent shoot.
