Default 9 mm is there one that fits my wants

I have a walther p22. Some trouble at first with some ammo. Now after several hundred shots no problems at all. I would really like to find a well made 9mm with close to the same features. The natural answer seemed to be a walther p99. This is a striker fired pistol. I prefer a hammer on my pistols. Probably because my roots are in revolvers. I like the idea of having a round ready to go "safely" when in the company of my pistol. DA/SA with a hammer. Any ideas?

Are you looking for a full sized pistol or a CC Pistol ? many to choose from you just need to be a little more specific

Maybe a look at the FNP-9 series from FNH? I love the way they feel and they have a lot of nice features...

Thanks for the quik response guys. I would want a full size hi cap pistol. I' m very interested in the cz~75spo1. To my understanding it has plastic parts. Any thoughts on that. My son has fnp45 which I've shot and liked. What a beast! I'm not familar with the hi~power except its stellar reputation.
Like most these days money is limited. I want to get it right the first time on this purchase. I would say my budget is around 600.00. I have read other forums on different subjects. This is the first one I have written a post on. You guys have broad and different opions with a sound knowledge base. Thanks again for the feedback, be assured it will be a key in my decision.

Great choice. I have the CZ 75 SP01 and it is my favorite. The only plastic part that I know of is the recoil spring guide and it is cheap to replace if you feel like it.

If you like it now...wait till you held one in your hand..and shoot it for that matter.

Or you can get the real deal as JM Browning designed. This one set me back $450 and has no plastic parts. It sees a lot of use. There's a reason they're considered "King of the 9s".

I'd buy one too if I can find it for $450.

That is a beautiful pistol in form and function. It is single action. The only way you can reach and shoot is with the hammer back, one in the chamber. Am correct in my thoughts?
