    S&W has been the US distributor for Walther for a few years now.

    No. Smith has a distro contract with Walther.

    They also combined on the design/build of the p99, i don't know if they did on other models, i just remembered when they announced it and then it came out... finally had to have me one so bought it from a person here, i quite like it :) :)

    Before S&W introduced the M&P series of polymer handguns, S&W teamed up with Walther to distribute the P-99 series in the USA.

    Hence the creation of the S&W/Walther SW-99

    Came in 9x19mm, .40S&W and .45ACP.

    After S&W introduced the M&P series, they dropped the SW-99 line of handguns.

    That's not entirely correct. Walther designed the P99 on their own in Germany in the mid-90s. Later on, Walther collaborated with S&W to make the SW99 which was more or less the same gun, with Walter making the frame and S&W making the slide.
