Huge favor, tell Walther to make more grips and sell them, we can size to our need. Answer I got that all were going into production is BS, you can mold as many as you need in a week.

So how long will it take to make a new mold and shoot some new grips. Why is it taking so long? For crying out loud, how long can it take a room full of German Engineers to modify the shape of a grip? Here is an engineering tip, the q5 small grip is perfect for me, just duplicate it. In fact, I would purchase anybody's new smaller grip design that fits the Q5 SF. Are you going to make us wait another 3 months? Stop work on the new trigger and get the grip done.

Kind regards,
Small Hand Luke
I picked up a set of LOK Grips to see if that helped. They dont fit my Q5 SF very well and Blake was great at LOK Grip with suggestions, but after all that fiddling around I've got a grip screw that is getting stripped. It's part # 2830493 but I can't find out where I can pick up replacements. Anybody know the specs for somewhere like Monsterbolts.com or where I can get replacements?

I purchased a Lok Grip and it arrived Monday, it fit very nicely to my gun, no problems at all. I wish it was smaller, about the same size as the original but feels really nice. The material is strange almost brittle, sticks to the hand very nicely.

https://www.mcmaster.com/92095A471, check this screw size out, I think its a replacement but not positive, very close, but not exact but need to verify the thread size before using.


Still waiting for a smaller grip, Small hands, Keithwhite100

I also want smaller grips for my Q5 SF.

The current grip is not too bad, and I even made it larger by adding a rubber sleeve. It works ok. But then I shot my PPQ M2 the other day which reminded me that I do like smaller grips.

I received the new LOK Bogie grips last week. They have way better grip and better feel for the position of the gun in hand. They are a little bit smaller,mainly because they don't have the palm swell areas like the stock ones. My wife says that they would be perfect if bigger,so she will wait on LOK to make the larger size.Can't see how anyone needs smaller grips.The need for area to place your support hand palm is what helps in recoil control. As long as you can reach the trigger correctly.

Used to LOK and VZ on 1911's I'm actually surprised how comfortable the stock SF grip feels to me, but I'd like to try keithwhite100's grips! I to have small hands. I'm up for trying the "thin" Bogies from LOK if he ever makes any.

Ooo, those must just have come out! I didn't see those variants when I looked last week.

The one with the blue line looks really nice! Maybe I should... Upsman, you say they're a little bit smaller than the stock grip? A little thinner?

Well I guess I don't have Sasquatch hands like some others. We are all different so one size does not fit all.

My wife has tinny hands, my daughter has even smaller hands, and yes a smaller grip is needed for us to reach the trigger correctly. Same reason some of us needs a ladder to reach the top kitchen cabinet.

Loving my small hands, Keithwhite100

Walter grip update

So I called Walter yesterday to check if I could purchase a replacement grip for my gun so I could modify it to even a smaller size.

No luck, Nothing available, had no idea when it would be. In fact, Walter sales stated they had very few replacement parts, only the ones that fit other models.

I inquired regarding smaller grips, nothing at all, had no idea when or if it was ever coming out?
