My purpose is just for fun. This would not be my conceal carry - the polymer gun would be better for that.What is your intended purpose? Are you wanting this for concealed carry? Just a fun range toy? Or other? Personally I like the steel frame better, but you're reasons for wanting one could determine which one would be better for you. I would also say look at the Q4 steel frame.
In that case then the Q5 Steel Frame! Then get the dynamic trigger and drop it in! Sweetness!My purpose is just for fun. This would not be my conceal carry - the polymer gun would be better for that.
I really want the black tie, but my wallet ran away when I mentioned it.In that case then the Q5 Steel Frame! Then get the dynamic trigger and drop it in! Sweetness!
I was going to suggest, if you have the money, to get a "Black Tie" version of the Q5 SF. Very nice handguns. The only down side, if you want one, is they don't have an optics cut. You might even wait until after SHOT Show and see if Walther will bring out something new.
The Q4 Steel Frame is also a nice gun.
On a side note; with a good holster and belt, I don't have any issues carrying the steel frames.
At least it wasn’t my wife who ran away.You cracked me up……so funny!!!!!! Edited the post…but after 3 minutes I am still laughing…reposting….
I own a Q5 SF, i use it when a compete in carry optics. It weigths around 43oz empty. Way to heavy to carry. But remenber even the polymer one its a full size frame. But if you just want it to have it around and use it on the range sometimes, go steel, you wont regret it.I'm really looking hard at getting a Q5. Can't decide whether to go for full steel or the polymer. I don't shoot competitively so that's not a consideration. I would appreciate any thoughts.
