Things I liked:Perfect replica, decent weight, and excellent handling. Nice solid kick, and positive slide cycling action.
Things I would have changed:Too much slack all over this gun. The slide rattles, and there is play between the inner and outer barrels. Also, this is not the Maruzen P99 so positively reviewed elsewhere on the web; this version has a flimsy plastic outer barrel and chamber, with no marking on part of the chamber visible through the ejection port when the slide is in battery. Other versions have the trademark and "9mmx19" stamped on this part. The guide rod is plastic, too, which was really surprising, and the recoil spring seems weak – slide sticks about a half inch from the front of the frame on occasion when racking manually.
What others should know:Overall, a nice gun, shoots decently, but build quality of the slide and barrel disappointing. This appears to be an export-only version and is distributed by Umarez USA (the manual is in English). A metal outer barrel upgrade would be great, but parts are impossible to find now. A metal slide would be great, but same problem with availability, and you'd need to install a heavier recoil and hammer spring, and possibly use only green gas to get the heavier slide to cycle properly.
Things I liked:Great detail. Functioning decocker like the real deal. Trigger system is like the real steel. Adjustable rear sight.
Things I would have changed:ABS Plastic Slide - its a joke. If it was metal I would consider this one of the nicest GBB replicas ive ever held. FYI - Metal slides are almost impossible to come by so dont think this will be an easy upgrade. If you do find one, its going to cost about what the pistol cost after shipping and might not even have the walther trademarks. Plastic outer barrel and guide rod. This I dont understand as the some of the older ones had metal ones. Maruzen, what is that all about? And why is this not based on the newer P99 without ski-hump trigger guard and weaver rail. Too much play between outer and inner barrel that sometimes causes jams during blowback cycle.
What others should know:If you want a P99 just to collect and shoot from time to time, get it as you'll love it. If you want a skrim viable pistol, don't. I gave 1 star for value because it is way overpriced considering the lack of metal parts and its durability, but alas, its like the only p99 GBB on the market....
Things I liked:This gun is VERY durable! The bottom grip is made of strong ABS plastic and the magazines feel strong and sturdy. Nice accuracy too. If you zero in on the hop-up until it is just right, you will be able to hit a soda can at 40-50 ft. I like the size and shape of the gun. It has a awesome look and is a great replica of the real thing.
Things I would have changed:Adjusting the hop up is a SERIOUS annoyance. But do not adjust it hastily. If you take your time you will be able to get a .20 gram bb to travel far and accurate. I would definetly change the slide of the gun. It is a thin plastic material that is not as strong as the grip. When you compare the slide plastic to the ABS, the slide looks a piece of junk. I would also make the trigger full metal. It is a strong abs, but metal feels, sounds, and works a lot better.
What others should know:I have upgrade my P99 with all metal parts except the grip, which is supposed to be ABS anyway. The top slide of my gun is all metal and it has a sweet mock silencer on it to. Upgrade your P99 with metal parts, and you will love it to death! My gun makes a great sound as the blowback cycles. Unfortunetly, all the upgrades I have made to it were pretty expensive..... Even if you do not plan on dishing out a couple hundred bucks on upgrades, get this gun anyway. You WILL NOT regret it. I also recommend using .20 gram BB's and green gas (also known as HFC 22 gas). YOu should also consider buying some spare magazines, even though they are a bit on the pricey side.
