The new Q5 Match 9mm from Walther delivers a match-winning platform ready to accept the red dot optic of your choice—all right out of the box. Note the distinctive lightening cuts in the forward portion of the slide.

Over the last several years Walther has been introducing new guns, updates to existing guns, and line extensions. The latest addition to their line of 5-inch pistols is the Q5 Match. The Q5 is seeking a home in the competition arena, first and foremost, and you can tell that it was designed to accommodate the needs of competitive shooters. Three (three!) 15-round magazines are waiting inside the box to greet you. Multiple plates to mount your favorite optic ( like those from Trijicon, Leupold and Docter) to the slide of the gun are included as well. There’s even a bag of Allen wrenches and screws to mount everything up!

This is state-of-the-art bang bang.

An important feature is 15+1.  Nice gun, but expensive considering the red-dot optics are an additional cost.

This

is  not a bad price for a match grade pistol that comes with standard sights, but they all get expensive when you start adding threaded barrels, muzzle brakes and red dots to them. I'm demoting it from the front page just because I found out it has "Read Instruction Manual" printed on the gun itself. If that diabloical witch gets into office, we'll be lucky to be able to buy them at all, instead of suffering nanny state "instructions" printed on the gun. Of course no match pistol discussion would be complete without a tribute to the great Jerry Miculek, one of the greatest "gun control" advocates to ever live.
