The P22 is 75% the size of the P99 if that helps.

are they the same design but different calibers? Practice with the p22 with cheaper ammo but similar feel to the larger pistol?

I have both.

The full size isn't that much larger looking.

The p22 is actually tiny however.

Hum...how describe...I find the P99 is large for my small hands. Not in a bad way. i find the p22 just like a glove. My girlfriend finds the p99 too big.

Doesn't sound like a big difference, but think of it like a single stack vs a double stack pistol. They aren't that far apart really. but .2 of an inch makes a huge difference in that analogy. Same thing.

oh and yeah kinda similar to practice with but not really too..

The p22 has the long hard DA pull like the p99, but the p22's SA is just a finger push.

The P99's SA is probably the best SA pull I have ever had. I find it is very easy to predict. I haven't heard a bad thing about it...

Not similar in that the p22 is hammer fired, and has a safety.The decocker of the p99 is great. I am not so sure I trust the safety as a decocker on the p22. you have to safety it, and than pull the trigger to lower the hammer.

They feel some what similar yes. Both feel like no other gun out there.

I love it. Molds to your hand, not your hand molding to the grip.

You've got two far-different pistols with two far-different triggers and two far-different feels, for want of a better word. I don't think that you can compare the two in any way, including the banner that's on the slide of each. The P99 is made at the Walther plant in Ulm; it's a real Walther. The P22 is made at the Umarex plant in Koln; it's not a real Walther, despite the banner. Umarex is Walther's parent company; it makes air guns. The P22 feels and shoots like an air gun on steroids. The P99 is the genuine article.
