Walther’s New Q5 Match Steel Frame

With the introduction of the new Walther Q5 Match Steel Frame, it caught the attention of a lot of people, myself included. Some like Bill Blowers of Tap Rack Tactical that have had the chance to do some shooting with it have called it “Mjölnir,” and rightfully so.

When you combine the known goodness that is the Walther PPQ / Q5 trigger with an impressively weighty  41.6-ounce pistol, you should be left with one soft shooting blaster.


Walther ensured that competitive shooters will have all the tools they need by making the pistol MRDS compatible with the same plate mounting system used on the polymer framed Q5 Match.



The pistol is being offered in a standard Q5 Match Steel Frame configuration as well as a Pro version that bumps the magazine capacity from 15-rounds to 17-rounds. The Pro also gets a magwell and a slight increase in weight to 42.6-ounces.


The Walther Q5 Match Steel Frame carries an MSRP that starts at $1,499. Head to your local Walther dealer to learn more or head over to the Walther website and drool over some specs.

More from Walther:

Walther Arms, Inc. is proud to offer the highest level of Quality and Precision on the market with the Q5 Match Steel frame.

Combining the industry leading PPQ Quick-Defense Trigger, superior accuracy, and unmatched ergonomics found in the popular Q5 Match model, while adding in a high-quality precision-machined frame, the Q5 Match Steel Frame has raised the bar in pistol performance. The pistol comes standard with LPA Fiber Optic front sight, LPA Adjustable rear sight, and optic mounting plates to accommodate most micro red-dot optics available. The Q5 Match Steel frame will initially be available in two models: the standard model with three fifteen-round magazines, and the PRO model with new Walther Performance accessories including a low-profile magwell and aluminum magazine extensions that increase the capacity to 17 rounds.

“Walther’s goal was to take our existing high-performance PPQ, the Q5 Match, and push the boundaries of performance further than anything offered on the market,” said Bret Vorhees, Director of Product Development for Walther Arms. “The Q5 Match Steel Frame exceeds all expectations in terms of performance, quality, and attention to detail. This new product line shows what Walther is really capable of, and it’s just the beginning.”

MSRP for the Q5 Match Steel Frame starts at $1,499.00 and are available for purchase immediately.
