Walther P99 Q?

Anyone here shooting, carrying, or have experience with one of these?
I handled one in a local shop the other day and have to say, though I haven't fired one yet, this could be the pistol that converts me from a Glock! Sweeeeet trigger-pull and re-set, at least in dry fire.
Thanks in advancve for any replys!
Safe shooting,
Mark Garrity

Do you mean the QA?

I just got a P99 QA (Quick Action) if that's what you mean but I haven't taken it to the range yet.

Will post a review after a trip to the range tomorrow.

Yeah, I meant QA; that was a typo.
Let me know....

Walther P99 QA

A good friend of mine owns one. It has a few thousand rounds through it so far. Absolutely stone cold reliable. It shoots exactly to point of aim. The factory enclosed replacement grips are especially nice for ladies that might have smaller hands. As you probably know, the regular P99 and the P99 QA have COMPLETELY different triggers. You couldn't talk me into owning the standard P99 just because of the long mushy double/single action trigger. The QA trigger is a whole 'nuther animal. It has a short pull and breaks cleanly at about 7 pounds. It's a keeper.

Best Wishes. Mark Shuell.

My impression of the QA

Just got back from the range after firing about 250 rounds through a new P99 QA 9mm.

I first loaded 2 mags from a mixture of Winchester and American Eagle 124 gr FMJ. First shot, a type 2 malfunction. After clearing it and resumed shooting, I finished the 2 mags with about 4 type 2's. Trigger pull is about 6-7 lbs, minimal felt recoil and muzzle rise, and shoots to point of aim. But the reset is loooooong!

Reloaded another 2 mags of mixed Win and AE with same jam results, with some turning into a type 3 malfunction after doing the tap rack flip to clear the type 2.

Then I loaded 2 mags of 124 gr Hydra-Shok JHP and all 20 rounds shot through without a single jam. I then separated the Winchester and the AE and isolated the problem. It's the Winchester it doesn't like. The 2 mags of AE went through without a hitch and then the Winchesters were jam-o-matic....type 2's some turning into type 3's. From then on, I only shot the AE with no more jams.

I like the way the gun feels in my hand, easy to point and accuracy is good. The reset is something else if you're accustomed to the Glock reset. The trigger has to go all the way back before you can re-engage and shoot again. As I'm used to the Glock's nice short reset, I do not like this at all.

After that I shot my Kimber CDP II and I could really feel the difference in recoil and reset. The Kimbers also have a nice short reset.

I guess I'll keep my G23 as my carry gun.

Mark, I thought "Q" stood for Quartermaster?
