Q5 S5 Grip is MIA

Seriously Walther, I'm still waiting for a smaller grip for the wonderful SF. Yes it's a fantastic gun, however, I can't enjoy it as the man paw grip that is standard makes shooting the magnificent gun a pain. 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 spoke with them several times and was told not in the works at this time. I made mine much smaller to fit my wife's hand. I filled the backstrap with acraglas, sanded it all down and then used silicon carbide. Fits her hand perfectly. Pic below.

There is room for a 3rd party here. Maybe VZ, Hogue, ... will come up with something.

I love it. So how much would you charge me to change mine?

Can you send me a link for acraglas and silicon carbide. I hate to screw it up but as is, purdy much worthless.

You can find silicon carbide or aluminum oxide on eBay in small qty.

Sand down the sides the way you want them and the backstrap. Then rough up the inside of the backstrap. Drill small holes through the back strap and the inside so the Agra glass can Bond. Don't forget to use release agent where you do not want it to stick. anything that leaks out you'll be able to clean up once it dries. Then start carving away with a Dremel to the shape you want. Then add epoxy and the silicon carbide. Done.
Look at videos on YouTube to get ideas of the process.

I thought Walther said when the SF was first released that different grip options would be available??? Am I mis-remembering that?
