What finishes are available for the P99?

The P99 QA (Quick Action) is available only in all-black. The P99 is currently available in three finishes: all-black, Military (olive drab frame, black barrel, and black slide), and Titanium Coated (black frame, black barrel, and silver slide). The P990 was available in all-black, Military (olive drab frame, black barrel, and black slide), and the QPQ finish (black frame, black barrel and silver slide). CDNN apparently cleared out the remaining Walther USA inventory of the Walther P990 and they have not been available new from Walther America since 2000. They may still be manufactured in Germany, but Walther America is not importing them. Below are photos of the P99 in Military and Titanium Coated configurations, both chambered in 9mm:

 

Starting with the redesigned 2004 models, the P99 QA will be available in three finishes: all-black, Military, and Titanium Coated. Also, the P99 AS (Anti Stress, meaning SA/DA), P99 DAO (Double Action Only), and all configurations of the P99c (P99 Compact) will be available only in all-black. Obviously, Carl Walther plans to more aggressively compete in the Law Enforcement market by giving more emphasis to the P99 QA.
