“After a quarter of a century of continuous production, the time has come to say our final farewell. This Final Edition P99 AS is chambered in 9mm and features the desirable OD Green frame with special “Final Edition” engraving on the slide. This pistol will come in a durable and equally as limited special edition custom fit, weather-proof case and will include a challenge coin to commemorate the final edition.”
When the Walther Arms P99 was first introduced in 1997, it quickly became one of the most trusted pistols of law enforcement officers worldwide. The P99 is trusted by professionals who entrust their lives to a firearm daily.
The ergonomics, dependability, accuracy, and safety features were/are decades ahead of their time.
The design was one of the most advanced options on the market, making it one of the most feature-rich designs to emerge in the ’90s.
- Double-action/single-action stageable trigger with an extremely short reset.
- Cocked striker indicator.
- Loaded chamber indicator.
- Integrated no-snag decocking button.
- Interchangeable backstraps.
- Ambidextrous paddle-style magazine release.
- Tool-free takedown.
- Four internal safeties.
Now, for 2023, Walther thought it fitting to say goodbye to this classic design after a quarter century of service, which not only saw use in various law-enforcement agencies and military units but also on the big screen in the hands of 007. The Walther P99 AS “Final Edition” will give fans of this unique handgun one last chance to claim one with a grand send-off.
