I own an M40/M40A1 and P99 in the AS (double action trigger)
The P99 has been around a bit longer than the M. The grip on the P99 has a very very slight edge over the M. The grip on the MA1 has been changed and is just about as nice as the P99.

The P99 has a higher bore axis and is a lighter gun so muzzle flip is more pronounced.

Steyr seems to have one of the best feeling triggers in a striker fired gun.

While I have had no problems with either of my Steyr's others have . The P99 has an excellent reputation for reliability.

If mounting a light to your weapon is important the P99 still doesn't accept "standard" accessories but Steyr will.

P99 holsters will be a bit easier to find than Steyr.

The Steyr should also sell for around $100.00 or so less than the P99 and magazines are less expensive.

I also think that the Steyr is a more robust design

could you post pics of walther chamber and steyr chamber with cartridge in them?

good luck finding a walther P99/SW99 seems S&W stopped temporarily importing them but new ones coming in. not seeing many on the net for sale and they are bringing a good price $500-$550.
Wish I could. No digicam.
The Steyr chamber does have better support. I guess the Walther chamber is more like 3/4 supported.

S&W will be importing the AS trigger again. Currently for the P99 there are 2 other triggers. One is a true double action only (990 model) and the other is more Glock/Steyr like but I think it has a heavier trigger than a Glock. Possibly the heaviest of the striker fired handguns.

My P99 is sitting in the safe. My Steyr's are my duty and off duty weapons.

The new P99's don't have still don't have a "standard" accessorie rail. It requires an adapter.

Any and all guns will be a compromise. features you like or don't.
Overall the P99 especially the AS are pretty nice.

I would imagine that after the summer the AS will be easy to get again as Walther USA is going to re import it.

Yup, but that rail is still not exactly standard.
Insight makes the M6 to fit the P99 and S&W TSW series.

The P99c I think is standard.
