Default Smith & Wesson forgotten Striker Fired Pistol

Smith & Wesson went through a turbulent time in the 90s. They started and ended the decade with losses. The overtaking of the police market by GLOCK in such a rapid manner and the Assault Weapon Ban scared the bejeezus out of them and worse, led them to do some bad things like sign the HUD Agreement with the Clinton Administration.

Their rising star, the Third Generation of DA/SA Automatics was suddenly kicked off stage due to the plastic fantastic from Austria. The aggressive marketing, cheaper prices, and lighter weight really made what was cutting edge in 1989 seem outdated like your Great Grandpa trying to work a new fangled CD on the record player in 1992. It was just wrong on so many levels. And that led Big Blue to make the Sigma series. A direct GLOCK clone. But we're not talking about that gun. No dear readers. Today we're talking about S&W other Striker Fired pistol. A gun born of the dark arts and alchemy you can only find in Teutonic Engineering Land....

Yup, we're talking about the SW99!

A gun made in collaboration between S&W and Walther.



The Walther P99 was the Plucky German Company's attempt to enter the burgeoning polymer frame striker fire market. They rode a good record with the P38/P1, the P4 update, and later the P5 with various police and military forces in Germany and across the world. But by the 1980s, the writing was on the wall. Walther needed to make a double stack higher capacity Wonder Nine to get new contracts. So they made their magnum opus, the P88.



A marvelous piece of German craftsmanship that utterly failed because it was ungodly expensive. So they went back to the drawing board and came up with the P99.



A quasi DA/SA striker fired pistol. A good overall design for the era. It had a decocker button on the top of the slide that allo the shooter to "decock" the pistol. In reality all it did was make the gun have a longer trigger pull. But the idea was that you load the gun, decock it, and the longer trigger pull would be safer for carry than the striker being ready.

So how the hell does S&W get involved in all of this? Walther at the time didn't have their own US Importer. They always worked with others and in the 90s, they agreed to let Big Blue be their importer for the US market. The quid pro quo was that Walther would import some S&W guns into the European market. This was a good partnership and eventually a deal was struck up to sell the P99 under the S&W label.

Big Blue would make the slides and barrels while Walther would make the frames.



The gun had some marginal success in the LE market. The NJSP was one of their biggest buyers. But more on that later. Anyways, the gun was made and sold for a number of years in 9mm and .40 S&W. Some police departments bought it and it was average at best on the civilian market too.



It was seen as a poor man's P99 since the P99 was actually sold too in the US market. Why get the imitation when you can get the original and be James Bond in Tomorrow Never Dies.



That was the first time the P99 was theatrically introduced to the US since it was how Bond got issued a P99.

I had a SW99 in .40 S&W. It was okay. I paid $99 for it at Lou's Police Supply in Hialeah, FL. It was a police surplus gun and just sat on the counter FOREVER. I figured for a Benjamin, I can risk it.



The trigger was meh. It just didn't feel right to me and the little ski jump in the trigger gaurd rubbed my finger the wrong way during extended periods on the range. It carried well and was fairly accurate. But the gun just didn't sing to me. It did nothing better than my GLOCKs. In fact, it was worse than my GLOCKs. So I got rid of it for $250 back during the Great Obama Panic of 2013.

And that's when I thought I was done with the gun. But then I learned that for a period of time. Other than GLOCK and Springfield Armory. S&W was the only other player in .45 ACP striker fired guns and Walther fans couldn't get theirs in .45 ACP.



Yup, part of the agreement with S&W and Walther was a SW99 in .45 ACP. It wouldn't be until the second half of the 2010s that Walther made a variation of their PPQ (an updated P99) in such a chambering. So for a while, if someone really like the P99 but wanted it .45 ACP, they had to settle on the SW99.





It was interesting that S&W and Walther went through such an effort. But it makes sense too. The gun was designed back during the tail end of the Clinton AWB. No one knew if it was going to be renewed or not. S&W, GLOCK, and others were hedging their bets that it was. The SW99 in .45 ACP was a 10+1 capacity gun. Making it AWB safe. But by the time the gun came out. The AWB was over and that's all she wrote. Plus the NJSP made the gun seem even worse.



They ordered the gun with an odd request. The decocker mechanism was to be removed but the gun was to still have the internals of the original design. This led to all levels of screw ups. And it simply tarnished the reputation of the gun even more.

In the end, the gun never became popular and its removal from the standard catalog and production line happened with no ceremonial fanfare of retirement. It simply faded away into the ether and forgotten.

If you run across one cheap and want a beater gun. They work fine for that. But if you want it for something more serious. Look elsewhere.

When the .40 Smith & Wesson round was first invented I bought a cheap EAA witness which is a clone of the CZ 75. It was an excellent defensive handgun and Iíve had a whole bunch of defensive handgunís over the years and that .40 Witness gun was my go to handgun for a couple of decades. I heard about many people complaining about the severe recoil of the .40 S&W but I thought the recoil was fairly mild in the Witness and didnít know what they were talking about until one day I fired a friends Walther P 99 in .40 S&W. After every shot the muscle was pointing straight up at the sky and the thing had more muzzle flip than a lightweight 44 magnum! I think Walther just took the 9 mm gun and re-chambered it to .40 and they didnít put a heavier recoil spring or heavier slide on it to balance out the extra power and it was guns like that that gave the .40 Smith & Wesson a terrible reputation for snappy recoil.

Good article... ... and a "Like" because I learned something.

Back during my "Plastics Period" I started collecting all the different variants of the SW99. The gun intrigued me to no end and still does today (but not why you might think).

The only one I don't own is the .45 ACP version and that is because I've yet to find one in LNIB (or close) condition with no issues. The closest I've come was in a local shop that had two of them. Unfortunately, they both had wear and/or defect issues. The shop owner went so far as to offer to put together one gun from the two that would be better for sure, but I declined. I'm still looking, but it's no longer a "front burner" quest.

I also bought a Smith and Walther 99 in 40. I got it for a good price though a lot more than the OP's $99. I enjoy it for what it is and what it does. It digests lead like a dream. The trigger is reminiscent of a cap gun but I have a Kimber 1911 for target stuff.

The P99 whether Walther or S&W versions is in my opinion one of the most innovative and reliable pistols ever made. I owned the S&W 99 in .45 ACP below for a while. And I still have a two-tone S&W 99 also in .45 ACP.

Nothing "quasi" about it. Either trigger action is selectable with an added "AS" mode.

I bought a Walther P99 off CDNN in about 1995. I had it shipped to a local mom n pop (now defunct) gun store to complete the purchase. CDNN used to by up guns that weren't doing well in the market and resell them at discount prices. Mom n pop were impressed by the gun and price and bought a few to sell in the shop. I think all the guns were still in the shop when they closed up about 8 yrs ago. Mine was gone from my possession long ago.

I've owned a 9mm version and enjoyed it. They tend to be high priced around here, close to $400, even without extra mags or a box. I've only seen the 45 version at a gun show and it was a police trade-in. It was closer to $500.
Canik has done pretty well with their TP9 copy of the original Walther P99. It's easily been much more successful then either the Walther or S&W version.

An interesting and informative write-up as always, but it left me wanting more. Please consider doing one on the Sigma Series eventually.

A very nice presentation by the Op of the SW99. I believe S&W at the time saw the Walther P99 as a step up from the journeyman/everyman Glock series of pistols. When the Sigma series failed to ignite sales I think S&W wanted a quick and easy way to move the market to an upscale European brand, but still an American product. As some have said in other posts, neither Walther nor S&W pushed this product for all it was worth. When the M&P Series hit the market, Smith let the SW99 wither on the vine and slowly fade. Great pictures and write up. I am pretty sure the SW99 .45 was a 9+1 pistol, and at first there was a little trouble getting the original magazines to lock back on an empty mag (later corrected). I disagree with your last sentence. The SW99 series were high quality firearms. Smith and Wesson/Walther did not always see eye to eye in their business relationship, however the P99 and the SW99 are(were) well designed and well made firearms and should never be classified as beater pistols. A well maintained SW99 will serve its owner well.

What's funny is that Glock did essentially the same thing after the .40 came out. They took a 17 or 19 and just made the barrel bigger. It resulted in cracked frames. I believe the Glock .40sw still has issues, but I could be wrong.

A friend won one (PT99 45ACP) at a Friends of the NRA auction! I shot it a few times and liked it, didn't love it!

I sold my G22 the day I retired, didn't love it!

I kept my S&W M4566 when I tried to love the G22!

I'll never sell my 4566, love it!

Smiles,

The only issue I'm aware of involving Glocks chambered in .40 S&W is that they don't (or at least they did, not sure about Gen 5) have full chamber support on their barrels, which occasionally resulted in case blowouts when Bubba either attempted to load a .40 S&W to duplicate the performance of full-power 10mm Auto, or otherwise unloaded/reloaded his Glock 22 on a daily basis, thus resulting in bullet setback which in turn caused unsafe spikes in chamber pressure.

I've never heard of a properly loaded .40 S&W cartridge with no setback resulting in a catastrophic case blowout, emphasis on "properly loaded" because I'm sure that otherwise someone will come along to inform me of how they heard online that someone's father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate had a catastrophic blowout while shooting ARMSCOR ammo out of their "Glock 40" which also blew their hands clean off along with one of their eyes.

Also, as previously stated, I'm not sure about the new Glock 22 Gen 5. I know that they improved the barrel with conventional cut rifling resulting in greater accuracy as well as the ability to shoot cast bullets, so it wouldn't surprise me if they also improved the barrels to provide full chamber support. Although they might not have since it really isn't a big deal for anyone who doesn't reload, and those who do generally just buy aftermarket barrels with full chamber support.

You mean an SW99, right? The PT99 is a variant of the Beretta 92 made by Taurus chambered in 9mm Luger.

I wanted an SW99, but by the time I was ready to buy an SW99, the M&P9 was available used. I do not regret my choice.

While I still have my original S&W Sigma 40F (From 1st 500 run in 1994), I still also have a SW99 (Police Trade In) which after replacing the trigger group,became a great shooter. I have a Walther P99 as well that is set up to be a 9mm, second slide makes it a 40 S&W and .357 Sig. To top that off, I have 2 P99's in 45ACP. One of them is new in the box as a spare backup to the first. I believe the P99 series is highly underrated, I like mine and like anything else, beauty is in the eye of beholder. The 45 is my favorite. I have used all my P99's in IDPA and USPSA Matches with no liabilities. They can be setup as single action 1st shot if you do not decock. Improves your 1st shot accuracy. With all that said I also have M&P's too. ;<)

I knew of a small department that had the SW99 40 up until about five years ago. The opinion of them was split 50/50 before they went with new G22s. I knew a bailiff who had the 45acp variant. He was a firearm enthusiast and some other deputies told me he could outshoot the best of them with the SW99.

AFAIK, Glock went to fully supported chambers with Gen 3. My 10 mm Gen 3 is, for certain.

Gen 5 Glock Marksman Barrel: the rifling is not conventional, it's polygonal with the lands bordered by ridges. It's neither fish nor fowl IOW. I've got 2, a G44 and a G19X - the rifling looks the same pattern and the 22 LR shows no tendency to lead whatsoever. Anyway I think it's a modification that's actually an improvement.

First, this was a great thread on the history of the SW99/P99, OP!

LOLOL I'm much the same, KS Deputy. Call me a luddite, but I want a real hammer and not a hidden striker. The only reason I ended-up with my SW40VE is from a family member who has passed-on... it's the ONLY SF weapon I have, and it's does nightstand/property duty. I don't like Glocks at all....wrong grip angle for me & just don't bond with them. Yuck. No offense to any G fans. I don't foresee purchasing any striker-fired sidearms at all.

I've always had a weird curiosity about the SW99/P99 due to the Walther/S&W thing, and that curiosity has been satisfied and put to pasture. Thanks for that, OP!

Now, that pictured Walther P88 has my attention... very nice. Like. LIKE!!

I find them less than pleasant to look at. Could be one of the reasons.
