WATCH: Walther Arms Q5 Match SF

posted on January 24, 2019
Though most of the shooting world is turning to polymer-frame guns, there are advantages to having a steel-frame gun, particularly in a competition environment. Steel weighs the gun down, allowing shooters to better-control recoil and muzzle rise, and the all-metal construction allows for more-consistent performance from the gun, since there's less flexing from the frame. Walther Arms provides these benefits to competitors in the form of the company's new Q5 Match SF pistol.

For all the details on the Walther Arms Q5 Match SF, check out our range day video above or read more in our First Look here.
