One was on a table at the local gunshow today.

$689 out the door price.

Slide fit and overall machining was very good. Finish was also very good. Trigger pin felt locked in place.

But... Those edges on the grip frame. Sorry, there is no excuse for those unfinished, sharp edges on a pistol in this price class. Even if it was in 7.65, it would be a "no sale" for me simply because of that issue.

Come on Walther, can't you do better than this????

:D
No Band Aid needed, but then I didn't take it out for one of my 200 round range sessions. I suspect that would be an uncomfortable experience.

I want to like the new pistol, however, I will not be an apologist for Walther here. Sure I could take a fine stone and smooth those edges, but why in Ulm's name should I have to? With today's CNC machining processes how much more difficult could it be to put a mild radius on those grip edges, especially at this price point.

My edges are fine.

Ever held a pre war or post war through the 60s model?

Older model once but I don’t recall the details of its origin.
