The new Q4 looks like a mighty fine pistol. Walther video just posted on YouTube minutes ago. See it here:

I saw the email this morning, they are advising it as a performance/ conceal carry gun but at a pound heavier than the PPQ I'm not sure it's ideal for ccw.

It does look nice.

As you say, it does look nice.

I dont think I'd want to carry it but I remember Walther saying after the 5" SF introduction they were getting requests for a more duty oriented version.

I chalked that up to people getting over excited at the initial introduction but who knows.

Looks good. Since I rarely carry my PPQ or any 4” pistol the extra weight won’t bother me as it would likely be a range/home defense weapon anyway. I prefer the 4” barrel over 5” for most everything. The longest I’ll use for carry is typically 3.5. Curious where the price will be. Hopefully a bit lower then the Q5sf.

At $1499 I must say, I'm a little disappointed with the price. Since it has no threaded barrel, or the magwell/extended mags, I would expect it to come in at a little less than the "flagship" Q5 Match model.

In a few SHOT videos I've seen today the Walther rep says the MSRP is $1299/$1399 for the irons/optics models.

Ok...here goes and some of you are not gonna like this.

The Q5 SF is made as a competitive gun to serve one purpose well....carry optics. It can also be used in production. However, there are much better production guns that a Q5 SF. It’s a mediocre limited gun and vastly outclassed as an Open gun.

Making the gun one inch shorter makes little sense other than the fact that a 4” vs 5” on a gun with an optic makes a little to no difference.

Positioning this as a carry or compact gun makes little to no sense to me.

That price tag should answer any questions along the lines of "will Walther ever bring back the P.38, P5 or P99?"...
Oh, yet they will ask...:eek:

I think the Q4 SF is best suited for CCP division in IDPA where a 4" or smaller gun is required. I did quite well last year with my PPQ 4" in IDPA and earned a good amount of Win With Walther cash, including a 1st place $1000 at the world championship. I'm interested in the Q4 mainly for the lighter recoil.
