First Look Walther PPQ Q5 Match Steel Frame Pistol



Quote
USA -(Ammoland.com)- #GripandTrigger swept over the polymer-frame, striker-fired community as the Walther PPQ grew in popularity.  5″-barreled target models began making their way to competition stages and then Walther released the Q5 Match with an optics-ready platform, lightening cuts in the slide, and a signature blue trigger.  Serving as a flagship and pinnacle model the Q5 Match has been popular, but Walther wanted to take things a step further.  Kept under tight secrecy until just months before official announcement in the US, the Q5 Match Steel Frame (SF) has arrived.

Rather than simply machine an aluminum or steel copy of the polymer frame Walther's engineers took things a step further and created what in this author's eye is nothing short of art.  Dozens of complex cuts, bevels, and transitions have been modeled into a piece of steel that fits the hand more comfortably than many polymer frames.  Why steel?  Weight.  Using steel offers a heavy frame to minimize recoil and steady more easily in the hand at speed.  The Q5 Match SF is designed with competitive shooting in mind.

not really my cup-o-tea.....much prefer this, my P06, made in 1912 (or it's stable-mate, my 9mm "Luger", P08, made in 1938)

Saw this earlier today.  Not my thing.  But I'm glad Walther is continuing to look at new audiences.  I'm a fan of Walthers although I am currently without one.  Still looking for my next one that can do better than my HK DA/SA pistols.  Not a fan of striker fired pistols.

I have owned a few Walthers over the years, and can say I have been pleased with all of them. I like that they are being innovative in trying something new. and I'm really liking this pistol!

The ONLY Walther in this camp is a 1939-P38 my Grandpap picked up off the battlefield in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge in December of 1944, during WW2. .   :th_thicon_idea:
