James Bond uses this type of firearm throughout the film, replacing the iconic PPK, PP, and P5's that had been used in previous James Bond films.

A Walther P99 first appears in the film when Bond chooses it from Wai Lin's (Michelle Yeoh) armory in Saigon. Bond mentions, "Ah the new Walther, I asked Q to get me one of these."

Condition is considered to be “very good” with wear to the high points of the slide, as well as the slide release showing loss of finish and minor scratching.

The action of the pistol cycles smoothly and the firing pin has been removed. The magazine has been plugged with a steel rod which has been modified to accept only one round at a time.

This iconic pistol had been rented by Eon Productions during the production of the film from Bapty & Co., a supplier of weapons and props. This is one of only eleven PAK pistols that were rented for the film. According to 007 The Armoury (page 82-85), "the only modification was to blank out the white factory engravings to better match the all-black appearance of the two 'hero' firearms."
