I said I was done...not quite.
Calling someone a ding dong is disparaging as are asking personal questions about the poster and the implications of those questions.

The level of most discourse here is rather poor.

My final words on this whole subject because I see this has become futile rather than a "teachable moment" are these:

You can lead a person to wisdom but you can't make them think.

Come on now....there's no need to ask that. Balance and Olsoul are long time members are very knowledgeable and helpful. And NO, I'm not a brudder or seester or cousin.

My x-wife ALWAYS had to have the last word. I figured that out and moved on.

Let's just move on.

OP has a nice looking Q5. I went a similar way but chose stippling instead of grip tape. The stock Walther stippling was poor in the beginning and over time my grip became downright slippery. I had the stippling craftsman keep within the factory stippled areas and retain the factory grip lines for aesthetic reasons.

There's nothing wrong with making your firearm look and work better.

Who did your stippling? I too would prefer the stippling on the Q5 to be more aggressive.

My Q5 stippling was done by Tristan at Midwest Firearms Solutions in Omaha, Nebraska. I live in Omaha so it was an easy drop-off/pick-up for me.

His website is: https://www.midwestfirearmsolutions.com/

He is indeed an artist with stippling and cerakote. I chose to have only the stock factory areas of my frame stippled but he can customize your job however you want and has several stippling patterns. I now have a great grip on my Q5 and none of the "taped-on" look of the stick on type grips.

Thanks Winston! I wanted to have this done but have not really had a line on where to send it.

The slide has been TiN coated. Really like it. Gun functions great...and literally just wipe clean.
Would you run it in and out of a Kydex holster a few dozen times and see if there's any wear on the front of the slide?
I want to have mine done, but won't waste my money if it doesn't do a better job than Walther did.

Once a slide is TiN coated, no plastic can rub it off. It’s 10 times header that it was before. One issue you may notice is that it is so hard, that it can scratch other surfaces. There is no way a Kydex holster could do anything g to it.
