    palm:

    The "AS" is the traditional DA/SA. I believe the P99/QA is either "Glocklike", or DAO. I think "Glocklike".

    Folks at WaltherForums - Powered by vBulletin can help you out with specifics.

    Both of my P99's are "AS" versions, and for my tastes the DA/SA trigger/striker is perfect.

    Best Wishes,

    Yep - sounds right! I have the ''as'' tho mine is a SW99 - same animal. I find it very easy to use ... one benefit I suspect of striker firing ... the DA pull being excellent. Surprisingly accurate gun and usually I keep mine with the extended base mags.

    I really like the DA/SA on my SW99. Also, if you have one in the pipe, and have used the decocker, it takes almost no effort at all to recock by moving the slide. This mechanism provides a great way to carry safely. That is, one in the pipe, gun decocked. It can then easily be fired either DA for first round, or you can quickly recock with a slight tug on the slide.

    There are things I don't like about my SW 99C in .40; but the DA/SA and decocker are great.

    on the 99c how long is the front side of the grip from the trigger guard to the bottom of the finger extension? the more i read about this gun the more i am wanting one but cant find one locally. i can find the reg. p99 but noone seems to have the compact. kinda wanna know what i am looking at size wise.

    From trigger guard to bottom of grip itself is .. 1 1/2" ... then (on my extended mags) add another inch.... so 2 1/2". That mag extension makes even this gun's small grip, spot on for my quite large hands.

    I have the P99c AS and +1 on what Hopyard wrote. If you practice the D/A first pull, you can get great accuracy, and each pull thereafter is a very sweet S/A, or if you want to then reholster you can simply decock the striker and be back to D/A for safer carry. It also has a second strike capability, which is a nice feature.
