“(We’re hoping that gun buyers take away) really just the quality and attention to detail that Walther is willing to offer something that really sets us apart from the rest of the players on the market,” he added.

The Walther Q5 Match SF evolved from and was inspired by competition handguns, which makes the high cost more reasonable. Other key features include an extended dust cover, wrap-around textured grip panels, oversized beavertail, and the lightening cuts in the slide. The rear sight is also removable and can be easily replaced with a red dot.

Alongside the new gun, Walther will release corresponding performance accessories that includes kits to modify magazines and triggers for all Q5 Match pistols — polymer or steel construction. On top of that, Walther will roll out more designs with an all-steel construction in the future. The Walther Q5 Match SF will be available Jan. 1. MSRP is $1,399.99.
