How it's made – The Q5 Match Steel Frame

The Walther Q5 Match Steel Frame is just that. A steel frame, not cast metal… It is a cold hard solid piece of steel that is meticulously machined. The Q5 Match SF is not just another gun it's a fully functional precise work of art.

Walther recently posted a behind-the-scenes video of how the Q5 Match Steel Frame models are produced.

“The Walther Q5 Match Steel Frame is just that. A steel frame, not cast metal… It is a cold hard solid piece of steel that is meticulously machined,” said the Arkansas-based company of German origins. “The Q5 Match SF is not just another gun it’s a fully functional precise work of art.”

The 9mm Q5 Match Steel Frame, as its name implies, replaces the standard polymer frame and the internal guide rod of the original model with one made entirely of steel. While the change tacks an extra pound to the gun, it results in smoother, faster shooting. Retail on the gun is $1,399.
