Then Walther needs to include the extended mag release in the box with each new pistol. If that doesn't make em' happy, then Walther needs to provide the Q5 SF with the extended mag release installed and the shorty included for those with extra long thumbs.Unless they have changed it, IDPA carry optics requires that a mag release has to be stock on another pistol to be legal.
I got a set of "Bogies" so I could mod those and keep the originals intact, and they say they are the same size but the feel a tad bigger. I've talked with Blake over there who was willing to tell me about filing/sanding them down. The G10 material is really toxic and should be worked with a respirator. I want to file in a groove so I can hit the mag release without breaking my grip.Let us know if the LOK grips are smaller. I don't want to buy them to find out they are the same size as the OEM grips
Looked at the updated rules and this is good news. Now, is the grip considered part of the frame so we can be .20" above that? The release button is about .12" above the steel part of the frame, but below the grip part of the frame.What the IDPA rule actually states re: the mag release button is "that it cannot be oversized and extend no more than .20" from the frame". If the extended button meets that criteria you're legal.
It does look thinner, please provide update and pictures, I hope you ordered the blue, I like the blue.Finally...LOK grips has Thin Bogies (and Checkered)
Mine are already ordered!
No. the "frame" is the "frame". The steel part. You wouldn't want to be above the grip. Sometimes you have a "box" start position. I've seen extended mag releases drop the mag inadvertently in those starts.Looked at the updated rules and this is good news.

If they came out with a paddle release steel frame, I would buy one of those in a heartbeat.No. the "frame" is the "frame". The steel part. You wouldn't want to be above the grip. Sometimes you have a "box" start position. I've seen extended mag releases drop the mag inadvertently in those starts.
for keithwhite100 and anyone else Thin blue/black checkered. The backstrap is flat which makes them smaller as far as trigger and mag release is concerned.
I can't find those medium Walther grips online. Where are they?On a different note Walther now has the Medium stock grips in stock in US and I received two ea in the mail yesterday. I'm starting modification on one of them today for myself.
They run 40 bucks each.
Yes that is the Walther 5.5 inch barrel. No that is not the thread protector that shipped with the barrel. This one is much better and heavy, I love it. That is a modified Dwason sight mounted on the gun, it is great and works perfectly with the SRO optic. With the upgrade on this gun it shoots like a dream machine.Keith
Is that the threaded barrel from Walther ??
Does it come with that thread protector ??
What type of front sight is that ??
Weapon looks great !!
