||P99 (Movie prop edition)
Bought from Redwolf,
Looks wise it's great, there are some mould lines on the frame but they're faint, I had to use the torch to see them clearly. Weight is on the light side at 668grams, which is a bit of a shame, the real version comes in at 700 g unloaded.
Markings are good and clear on the frame although on the slide the signiture "Walther" and "P99" markings on the left hand side of the slide are a bit weak. The metal outer barrel looks a bit "dull", the edges or markings arent crisp, it looks like the outer barrel is moulded with the markings rather than the markings added later. There is also a 1 mm gap between the back of the metal outer barrel and the slide.
The grip feels great, quick to sight and feels natural, the backstop feels rubberised and the rest of the frame is non-rubberized ABS plastic, it does look good. Accuracy wise, I put all but 2 shots from the 23 round magazine into a 2 inch grouping, I counted 53 shots before the gas gave out and stopped cycling.
The slide appears to have a two part metal internal frame with a thin plastic shell, so I hope this makes it safe for propane? . Recoil is nice, snap and crisp, not much of a kick.
A test shot, on propane clocked up 289 fps with .20 grams, a day later I tried a fresh mag and fired 5 more shots, coming out as 308, 309, 315, 303 and 305. Trigger pull unfortuantly feels plasticy and a bit gritty but very light when the trigger is in the second position.
Metal parts, outer barrel, internal frame, magazine. The sights and trigger are plastic, with white (rather dull white at that) inserts on the sights.
On the top of the slide is a button to decock the gun, this was at the beginning a bit gritty but smoothed up as time went by.
Silencer fits on the inside of the barrel, and not surprisingly doesn't really make it quieter (most noise seems to be coming from the action rather than the 'retort'), I'm not a silencer fan anyway.
Torch looks good, powered by two cr1233a batteries, and seems very bright for a LED torch (admittedly I've only owned the cheap stuff you get for a few quid down the market before).
There's text on the right hand side of the slide stating that the markings are licenced from Carl Walther, Gmbh, though I don't know if this means the replica can be imported into the US without the trades being obscured or removed.
The downside, the safety is a bit dodgy, you can engage the safety by pushing the pull down level to the left from the right handside of the frame however the gun still fires (very weakly and doesn't cycle but it does still discharge gas). If you cock the gun then engage the safety it does prevent the replica from firing.
Other than the slightly dodgy safety I can't find any other bad points against this gun, it feels great, looks good, markings arent that deep and the markings on the outer barrel are a bit dull but no major issues that I can find. It would have been nice had it been heavier (it's lighter than an unloaded real P99), but otherwise appears to perform well and has a good blowback action.
Overall a nice gun to own.
