I'm sure a bunch of you saw it on NASIOC, but I assumed I might as well post it here for any additional comments. I love the sucker thus far!

Finally! It arrived today, and I payed for the rest of it. I'm totally psyched. I definitely made the right decision on which handgun to pick. You might remember the other thread in which I tried to decide between the CZ P01, the Springfield XD, and the Walther P99.

The AS trigger is definitely something to behold. Such a great feeling. And it is indeed 100% German made, just imported by Smith and Wesson.

So, here are pics that my roommate took while I was out (he btw, is a few days away from purchasing the Springfield XD .45ACP 5" Tactical model)

Comments?










However, I didn't even notice it until I got back with it, but I noticed this scratch on the slide. Kinda pissed me off. I know I didn't do it.



Anyway, yay for gun porn! I was also surprised, as the date code for it was AG, meaning it was a brand new 2007 model. Very cool.

The P99 looks badass when you have the slide hard matte chromed. I have seen some on walther forums. If the scratch really gets you send it off to cobrachrome and have the topend done.

Is it just me, or does it seem a poor idea that the photographer for pic #2 was standing downrange from the weapon with a round in the chamber?

Peace,
Hans

The round is not chambered. Even if the gun were to fall over and some how causing the slid to close (chambering the round), this weapon is not going to discharge.

I realize that it is unlikely to happen, but is a possibility. Equipment built by human hands can fail at any time.

Safety is a continuum, not a binary value; it's not as if you are either peachy-keen safe, or gonna die right here right now. But on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being in a padded, NBC-shielded room with pure'd food and thickened water, and 10 being pouring a quart of cow's blood into a shark tank, then diving into said tank, kicking the shark in the gonads and insulting its mother, this would be a 3 or a 4.

Peace,
Hans

sweeeeet, the p99 was my first semiauto and she's been good to me :).
treat 'er right and get some trijicons, all the cool kids do it nowdays.

btw- 15+1 rds of 9mm?!? = awesome, I only get 10+1 of .40 w/ factory mags, at least until i scrape up enough funds for the 12 rounders. This hobby of mine will send me into the poor house if I'm not careful (does $10 for a single box of .223 sound outrageous or what?). sounds like it's about time for another surplus order.
