Dream is right :wink: I saw a thread someplace recently that stated there 'might' be one on the drawing boards. Unfortuneately, S&W will have a serious influence in the design & manufacture of these guns... :evil: Maybe I'll go w/ someone else in a compact 45!

That's why I'm carrying the Sig P245..... But we can wait .... and hope Smith doesn't turn it into a Sigma.... :cry: We all know about their history, even though there are no .45's in that either. :lol:

Look how long it took Mercedes and BMW to get interested in producing SUV's.
.45 ACP isn't that popular of a cartridge in Europe. Except for the innovative P-220, and the HK P9S in .45, which was an excellent pistol, but too expensive to make just for our market ... look how long it's taken to get a selection of European .45 ACP anything made for our markets.
Look how long it took Walther to get interested in producing a .40S&W pistol.
Their P99 in 9mm is doing very well, in all its variations, and the .22 pistol is just starting to attract attention ... and there are bigger demographic markets for those 2 calibers than for .45 ACP.
S&W is interested, though, and not with a Sigma ... If you're not interested in owning a SW99 10-round .45 ACP ... then you're probably not interested in seeing one hit the market before the end of this year. You can always wait for a Walther ...

At a local IDPA Match a month or so ago the local S&W Rep mentioned he had seen and fired a P99 in .45.
Said it and both a compact 9 & .40 are due out in around September. The .45 may be aailable later than that.....don't remember which is to come 1st?

With all due respect Mr. Ford, if I understand you correctly, that's a SW99 and NOT a Walther P99 in .45 ACP! :roll:
And before the uninitiated start their rant, they are not the same just because S&W is now the official importer for Walther.
Not being much of an optimist and not believing what I hear from gun companies, I'm betting that a deal was struck between S&W and Walther for Walther NOT to bring out a .45 ACP P99 in direct competition with the new SW99 in that caliber. At least for a time anyway.
Besides, Walther is getting their share of the sales, they make the frame for the SW99 but...again, this doesn't make the SW99 a Walther by a long shot!!! :x

Being a Hipower fanatic I know little to nothing about S&W or Walther. The guns look identical to me. So exactly what are the differences between them ?
