Just snagged a SW99 in .40 S&W for $200. It was a police sale... Palm Beach County Sheriff had it as a seized firearm and sold it to Lou's Police Supply.... the deal is that they can only sell those guns to other cops. It's been sitting in their back room for a year.

Anyways... the thing is mint except it's missing the other backstraps that would come with it. S&W Customer Service is closed for the holidays so i can't get an answer from them till next year. Any clue where I can hunt down the missing backstraps?

:rolleyes: That's not a conflict of interest at all.

Ive had one since they came out
and once the firing pin somehow broke, and at the time it was my go to gun
had to be sent in for them to fix, not a part you can buy if you ever happen to run into that problem

Ive only used the large backstrap, never tried the others
Dont really think its that important but I guess if your used to something different then get them

Also found the little rail never fit any lights I could find, never tried my surefire as it comes with a few adapters but if you were looking at a light or something just make sure it can clip on, the rail is very short
