True. This would make big mag release legal for IDPA. Good. 

 

I don't think so.  It would still have to fit within the rule of .20 from the frame or something like that.  CO division in USPSA - yes.

 

Member Waktasz came up with a brilliant solution for the IDPA mag release button in another thread.

 

The trigger "should" be good for both games.  I'm sure IDPA will try to find something wrong with it.  Legal for USPSA production and CO.

It's a beautiful gun.  The most interesting thing on the gun as far as applicability to other Walther pistols is the trigger.  

 

Hopefully, Walther makes these triggers generally available soon and a few of us get to check them out. 

 

It's early but a case could be made that the Q5 SF and PPQ Q5 should be shipping from the factory with such a trigger.

Looks really good.  I wish it had an optic plate though.  Eyes ain't what they used to be. 
 

 

 

Actually this is ideal if you want a DEDICATED carry optics gun...

 

I prefer my dots milled down into the slide. My DPP’s dot sits right where the irons used to.

 

Machinists can get a dot much, much lower on a Walther without an optic plate. With mine, you’re looking at the firing pin when it’s removed.

So what does the  final product look like. Looks good in the rough, and it's been several months now.....

Its been a year or two. I’ve been shooting it quite a bit. It also got 5oz of tungsten weight epoxied into the grip at the backstrap. ;) 
 

Although it’s fun, I think I may be selling it soon to concentrate on Production, and help fun the down payment on a house we want to buy.
