Outmatched by no one. Walther continues their tradition of superiority with a handgun designed specifically for those who only buy the best and nothing less. This is the ultimate representation of high-class performance in a conceal carry package that just can’t be found anywhere else. The new Walther Q4 Steel Frame.
When increasing performance on pistols, simply adding weight to the frame provides little difference. The Q4 Steel Frame is precision machined to properly distribute 40 ounces of weight to drastically reduce felt recoil, improving shooter performance. This revolutionary technique in distributing the overall weight of the pistol creates a superb balance in hand allowing the shooter to take advantage of the triggers short reset capability.
Grip geometry and texture must be perfect, then aiming becomes second nature. The ergonomics of the Q4 Steel Frame is a feat in firearms engineering that simply must be felt to be believed. The combination of a reversible over-sized magazine release button, recessed ambidextrous slide release, and flawless balance in hand result in the most natural point-of aim.
The Q4 Steel Frame features Performance Duty Texture, developed by Walther to provide a premium, yet functional grip. This Performance Duty Texture provides an aggressiveness to maintain proper grip performance. But, with its tetrahedron design, it is non-abrasive, providing no irritation to the skin or clothing of the user.
The Quick Defense Trigger is a safe two-stage trigger with a crisp-break and short-reset. The first stage allows for consistent prep with a distinct wall that can be easily found under stressful situations. The second stage is the crisp break of the wall, resulting in accurate shots on target.
The reset of the Quick Defense Trigger measures only 1/10”, allowing the shooter to skip the first stage completely and fire the follow up shot by only moving their finger 1/10 of an inch. Resulting in faster, more accurate and consistent shots on target.
The Duty Optimized Beavertail provides the shooter increased grip height on the pistol, resulting in reduced felt recoil. Optimized for duty retention holsters, providing clearance for retention hoods most used in Law Enforcement.
This beavertail design also enhances comfortability during concealed carry. The smooth, rounded design allows reduced irritation when carrying appendix IWB. This design also reduces the amount of print while carrying concealed.
Adaptable. Efficient. The perfect integration of both professional and tactical dynamics. The Q4 Steel Frame is unparalleled proficiency in a platform designed to meet your individual needs, available in either platform preferred, iron sight or optic ready. The Q4 Steel Frame features steel 3-dot phosphoric night sights, which are non-snag and optimized for conceal carry. The Q4 Steel Frame OR features a black serrated front and black serrated rear adjustable duty sight, while also allowing for the installation of a red dot optic. The Q4 Steel Frame series is uniquely designed to give you the flexibility of iron sights and optics.

The Q4 Steel Frame from Walther is an accomplishment that encompasses everything shooters desire in a premier concealed carry firearm capable of outlasting even the toughest conditions.
With the enormous popularity of the Q5 SF this was bound to happen. According to a source I’ve talked to who would know, the Q4 SF will be compatible with the magwell (and I believe aftermarket grips) from the Q5 SF Pro.
This would be a great base platform for a Roland Special-ized CCW pistol
