2 Safety directions
Never forget that even the safest pistol can be a danger to you and to others if not handled
correctly.
Before handling the pistol, first thoroughly familiarize yourself with its functions and handling
procedures by carefully reading this technical information sheet.
Always handle an unloaded pistol as if it were already loaded.
Caution: Never forget to keep your finger off the trigger until you actually wish to fire a
deliberate shot.
Always hold the pistol in such a way that neither you nor bystanders are endangered.
Never use force when operating, checking, stripping or assembling the pistol. Incorrect
handling will impair the functioning and safety of the pistol.
Safety and correct functioning are only assured while both the pistol and its ammunition are
in technically perfect condition.
Always have the pistol inspected by a qualified gunsmith if it has suffered from external
influences, such as corrosion, being dropped, etc.

3 Product description

3.1 Main features


The WALTHER self-loading pistol P99 DAO has been developed using the latest knowledge
for use by the police and other authorities. The automatic pistol P99 DAO works on the
principle of the mechanically locked recoil loader.

The P99 DAO is a striker fired (hammer-less) pistol offering the convenience of a modern
Double Action Only trigger with linearly increasing trigger pull.
The striker is inside the slide and has no external parts.
A clearly visible advantage is the slim and rounded outward shape of the pistol without
projecting parts.

The ergonomic shape of the frame fits variably into the hand of the user. The easily
interchangeable backstraps of varying size permit adjustment of the frame size to the needs
of the user.

The distance between the core axis of the barrel and the crook of the thumb has been
reduced to a minimum. This considerably reduces the upward kick of the pistol when a shot
is fired. This plays a major role in shortening the intervals between shots, since the extended
line of sight can be quickly resumed.

The P99 DAO has the following distinguishing features:


• immediate first shot potential
• maximum safety thanks to 3 automatically acting safety features
• loaded chamber indicator
• cocking indicator
• easy handling by both right-handers and left-handers
• high wear resistance
• optimum functioning safety
• rapid target acquisition
• high shot precision
• large magazine capacity
• very simple stripping of pistol

In summary, the result is optimum user safety and high convenience.

4 Technical description

4.1 General
The pistol is in loaded, de-cocked and in automatically safetied condition.
When the trigger is pulled back, the striker is released and the round is fired. The gas
pressure resulting from this ignition propels the projectile out of the barrel. Some of the
resultant gas pressure acts in the opposite direction on the breech face of the slide and
causes a rearward movement of the barrel and slide. The joint rearward movement of the
barrel and slide ends after 4 mm when the barrel swings downwards and the slide moves
back to its stop alone, while the casing is ejected to the right.
When the slide has reached its rear stop position, its rapid forward movement is initiated by
the recoil spring. In this forward movement, a new round is drawn by the slide out of the
magazine and fed into the chamber.
During the slide movement the striker safety is activated. This prevents an inadvertent shot
being fired when the slide is not completely closed.

4.2 Function description of the trigger assembly

4.2.1 General
The trigger system features a generally familiar double action system (DAO - Double Action
Only). The pistol is always in the de-cocked state and cannot be pre-cocked. Accordingly, no
striking energy is stored in the trigger mechanism that might be released or that requires a
de-cocking mechanism and hence additional controls.
The trigger characteristics are identical for every shot. In the event of a misfire (dud round),
pulling the trigger again permits further striking of the primer.

The trigger assembly is enclosed by a trigger guard generously dimensioned on the inside,
with a clear width in its front part of approx. 30 mm. It permits shooting without restriction
while gloves are worn. The front part of the trigger guard affords optimum support for
stabilizing the pistol for a rapidly aimed two-handed shot.
The magazine catch, operable from either side and quick to reach, is integrated into the rear
part of the trigger guard.

4.2.2 DAO trigger


The pistol is in loaded, de-cocked and automatically safetied condition.
When the trigger is pulled, first the trigger safety is de-activated. At the same time, the trigger
bar is set in rearward motion.
The striker, completely de-cocked at this moment, is now cocked. Immediately before the
shot is fired, the function of the striker safety is de-activated, so that the striker springs
forward and fires the round.
Once the shot has been fired and the trigger returned, the striker safety locks the striker
directly in front of the tip of the striker. The trigger safety and the drop safety also
immediately come back into action. The striker is de-cocked again, meaning that there is no
residual energy stored inside it. This ensures optimum safety for the user.
To fire another shot, pull the trigger right back again from its rest position. This is done with a
pleasantly rising trigger pull and unchanging trigger travel for every shot fired.

Technical Information P99 DAO
and technical instruction manual

4.3 Safety features


The P 99 DAO has three safety features acting automatically and independently of the pistol
user:
• Striker safety
Release of the striker travel when the trigger is pulled right back.
• Trigger safety
Release immediately when the trigger is pulled.
• Drop safeties
These safeties act when the pistol is dropped from a variety of heights and positions.
They prevent inadvertent firing of a round.

4.4 Status indicators


The loaded chamber indicator and cocking indicator considerably improve the safety.

4.4.1 Loaded chamber indicator


The extractor recessed on the right-hand side
shows that a round/casing is in the chamber when
the pistol is loaded.
The indicator is in the form of a coloured marking
that is clearly visible to the eye (1). In addition, the
extractor position can be clearly felt.

4.4.2 Cocking indicator


The technical status (cocked/de-cocked) is shown
by the rear and colour-coded end of the striker.
In the de-cocked state, the end of the striker can
be neither seen nor felt (2). When the trigger is
pulled, the emerging end of the striker becomes
clearly visible. 2 1

4.4.3 Magazine
4.4 fig. 1
When the magazine is removed from the frame, the
number of rounds can be seen from the holes provided laterally on both sides.

5 Handling the pistol

5.1 General
Dry the barrel and de-oil the pistol before you fire a live round.
Always point the muzzle of the pistol downwards and forwards when performing all actions
with it.
Keep your finger off the trigger, and instead stretched out above the trigger and along the
side of the frame.

5.2 Ammunition
Use only the ammunition officially issued to you.

Rev. b Page 7 from 15


Technical Information P99 DAO
and technical instruction manual

5.3 Filling the magazine

The magazine, once removed from the pistol, can be


loaded with up to 15 rounds.
Insert these rounds into the magazine in conventional
fashion, with the projectile tip pointing in the direction
of shooting.
For easier loading of the magazine, the user is advised
to hold down the rounds that are already in the
magazine with his index finger or thumb to allow further
rounds to be inserted (5.3 fig. 1).
Do not use force, as this will cause damage to the
magazine. Defective magazines cause malfunctions,
making the pistol unserviceable. 5.3 fig. 1

5.4 Loading the pistol

Hold the pistol in the basic position. Insert the loaded


magazine into the pistol until the magazine catch
engages. To do so, hold the pistol frame angled to the
left (in the case of left-handers to the right), insert the
magazine into the frame of the pistol with the non-
shooting hand, and audibly engage it. Then return the
pistol to the vertical position.
With your free hand grip the grooved lateral surfaces of
the slide with your thumb and index finger, pull the
slide all the way back, and then let it spring forward
(5.4 fig. 1). Do not guide the slide forward with your 5.4 fig. 1
hand.

Alternatively, when the slide is already opened, press one of the slide catches provided on
either side downwards with the thumb of your shooting hand or with the thumb of your non-
shooting hand.
The slide springs forward by itself and chambers a round.

After that the pistol is loaded, de-cocked and automatically safetied.

Caution: The pistol is ready to fire. Keep your finger off the trigger. The trigger
finger stays above the trigger, stretched out along the side of the frame.

Rev. b Page 8 from 15


Technical Information P99 DAO
and technical instruction manual

5.5 Shooting
To do so, the pistol loaded as described under 5.4 is brought upwards onto the target. Once
the target is in your sights, move your trigger finger to the trigger and pull it steadily with
continually increasing force until the shot is fired.
When the trigger is released (around 14 mm), further shots can be fired using the DAO
trigger.
The trigger should be pulled with the last joint of your index finger. Make sure the movement
of the finger is transferred to the trigger in lengthways direction of the pistol. Doing so will de-
activate the trigger safety to allow movement of the trigger.

5.6 The slide stop


Once the last round has been fired, the slide is automatically held in the rear position.

5.7 The pistol with empty magazine


The slide is in the rear setting. Operating the magazine catch, from either side, allows
removal of the empty magazine and its replacement by a full one if required.
After the magazine change, the slide stop lever provided on the left-hand and right-hand
sides can be operated quickly and without complication. The slide springs forward and the
pistol is ready to shoot again.

Caution: The pistol is ready to fire. Keep your finger off the trigger. The trigger
finger stays above the trigger, stretched out along the side of the frame.

5.8 Unloading the pistol


To unload, return the pistol to the basic position and turn it so that its frame is inclined to the
left (to the right in the case of left-handers).
Remove the magazine and put it away.
Then angle the pistol frame to the right such that the ejection port, pointing left, can be
covered with your non-shooting hand, and draw back the slide as far as it will go. As you do
so, the chambered round slides into your cupped palm (the other way round for left-handers).
This is followed by a deliberate visual check of the chamber. Only then is the slide released.
While the user puts the pistol into the holster device, his thumb is inside the recess of the
slide end cap.

5.9 Unloading the magazine


To empty the magazine, hold the latter in your non-shooting hand with the rounds pointing
upwards. Slide the rounds out forwards and singly with your shooting hand.

Never carry or keep loose rounds in pockets. Self-ignition is possible.

6 Care and maintenance of the pistol

6.1 Stripping the pistol

Remove the magazine and check that both the pistol and the magazine are
unloaded.

The pistol can be stripped down without tools into its main components (slide, barrel and
frame).
The pistol must not be stripped down further than shown in this technical information sheet.

6.1 fig. 1 6.1 fig. 2


Remove the magazine and close the slide. Now grip the takedown catch from above on both
sides and press downwards (6.1 fig. 1). Remove the slide forwards from the frame. Hold the
slide with its sights downwards and the muzzle towards you. Now grip the recoil spring unit
underneath the chamber and lift it upwards and out (6.1 fig. 2). Then remove the barrel.

6.2 Assembling the pistol


Assembly is in the reverse order to stripping.
Place the barrel inside the slide and fit the recoil
spring unit. Firstly, place the smaller recoil spring
end into the spring mounting of the slide, and
secondly insert the large surface of the recoil spring
into the lower barrel recess, against the spring
pressure (6.2 fig. 1).
6.2 fig. 1
Push the slide from the front into the slide
guides of the frame,
far enough for the takedown catch to engage
(6.2 fig. 2).

6.3 Cleaning the pistol

Ensure every time before cleaning that the pistol and the magazines are
unloaded and the chamber is clear.

To retain its operational safety and prolong its useful life, the pistol must be cleaned and
cared for every time it has been used and also after being subjected to extreme weather
conditions:

- Strip the pistol into its main components


- Clean the parts with the cleaning agents provided
- Clean the barrel starting from the chamber side until the barrel is completely clean
- Lightly oil the metal parts
- Reassemble the pistol and check it for easy action and flawless operation

6.4 Function check

6.4.1 Checks before use

Check that the pistol and the magazines are unloaded before a function check.

Function check:
a) Remove the magazine, and pull the slide back as far as it will go. After the slide is
released, the recoil spring must bring the slide forwards into its rest position.
b) Insert the empty magazine, and pull the slide back as far as it will go. The slide must be
held in this position by the slide stop lever.
c) Take out the magazine and operate the slide catch. Allow the slide to spring forward. The
recoil spring must move the slide back into the rest position.
d) Hold the pistol in the basic position.
e) Pull the trigger. The striker must operate.
f) Now release the trigger and then once again pull it right back. The striker must operate.

6.4.2 Check after use

Make sure by a deliberate visual check that the pistol is unloaded after use
(barrel and chamber empty) and the magazine is empty.

7 Adjusting the pistol to its user

7.1 Sights
The rear sight and front sight are easy to change and the point of impact is vertically and
laterally adjustable. The rear and front sights have contrast markings for rapid target
acquisition.
Polymer sights or steel sights are available.

Lateral adjustment:
If the shots group to the right, turn the rear sight windage screw clockwise, and if they group
to the left counter-clockwise. Adjustment by one click moves the hit point some 2 cm over a
25 m distance from target.
The drift adjustable steel rear sight may be adjusted using the rear sight installation tool. If
shots group to the right move rear sight to the left, if they group to the left move rear sight to
the right.

Elevation correction:
Using front sights of varying height corrects the elevation of the hit point.
If the shots group low, use a lower front sight, for high grouping a higher one. The front sights
are numbered. The higher the number, the higher the front sight. Each stage results in a
correction of the hit point by about 5 cm.
To change the front sight, remove the slide from the frame as described in 6.1 and remove
the barrel.

For polymer sights remove the front sight screw using the Allen key and press the front sight
upwards and out. Assembly is in reverse order.

For steel sights remove the front sight screw using a screw driver and press the front sight
upwards and out. Assembly is in reverse order. Remember to make sure the screw and the
tread inside the steel front sight are free of oil or grease. The thread of the front sight screw
is to be secured using Loctite 648.

7.2 Frame
To adjust the frame of the pistol optimally to the user's hand size, you can attach backstraps
of differing size. To do so, press the pin in the bottom part of the backstrap out to the left or
right using a drift and put it back in after the required backstrap has been fitted.

7.3 Eyelet
The pin used to fasten the backstrap forms, together with a recess in the backstrap, an
eyelet for attachment of a lanyard. To do so, press the pin in the bottom part of the backstrap
out to the left or right using a drift and insert the lanyard. Then replace the pin.
