Walther P99 Softair - the perfect police pistol.
The Walther P99 Softair pistol emulates its big known brother the Walther PPK and already heralded a change at the end of the 1990s. The reliable, compact pistol does not have a hammer, but relies on a hammer that is hidden inside the sturdy gun. The Walther P99 Softair is about 200 grams lighter than the original and constructed of solid plastic.
In the meantime, the handy pistol has begun its triumphant march through Europe, and in addition to the German states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Bremen, Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Rhineland-Palatinate, other countries such as Estonia and the Netherlands have also decided to convert their standard service weapon to the P99Q, another version of the model.
