I bought the SW99 .40 when they first came out. It has a very unique trigger system which I like but after the first shot fired it is a very very light trigger pull.



Is the SW990L trigger different or what is the difference between the two? They both look idenitcal.



I asked this question on the S&W forum site but got no response.

The SW990L is the DA only version of the S&W99. If you look on the top of the slide on your pistol you'll notice a decocking button. The SW990L does not have one.



I have two Walther p99s (basically the same gun) and they serve their purpose very well. Their great pistols.

Thanks guys.



So how come S&W quit making the SW99?

Who knows. At the time, Walther stopped importing the A/S version of the P99 - essentially the same thing. Also, I think S&W eventuallyw ants to focus only on the SIgma and M&P guns that they designed themselves.



I don't know what the sales numbers are on SW99s, but I can bet that the SW990Ls are probably selling only 1/2 as well, if that. Maybe its just a step on the way out...

45acp version S&W 99 is what interest me I already have 9mm and 40sw guns. the trigger changes were stupid imo if it aint broke dont fix it

That New Jersey deal happened a while back. I don't think it had any effect on the decision to stop the SW99 altogether. A year ago or so, I saw a few of those New Jersey guns forsale, but I didn't bother to get one.
