Is my P99 100% German-made?

If your P99 has the "eagle over N" proof mark on the slide (right-rear, immediately behind the serrations), barrel (right flat of the barrel hood), and frame (right-front, under the accessory rail, and immediately to the left of the two-letter date code), then it is 100% German-made. The "MADE IN GERMANY" on the frame merely indicates that the frame was made in Germany. Here are the markings, in the same order as previously described (the fourth photo is courtesy of Jim Costanza):

     

For 2004 and later P99s, including the P99c (Compact), the datecode and proofmarks on the frame are located under the accessory rail, as shown in the photo below:
